Here are some random thoughts on the prep season as some teams have already started the post-season.
I saw my first prep football game of the fall Friday – I have been rehabbing my left leg and can’t get around too well – and it was a doozie, as two-time defending champion Brookfield Central beat Brookfield East at East, 22-14.
The win left Central unbeaten (6-0) and dropped East (5-1) into second place with two games left.
Both Central and East fans packed the place and you had to walk blocks to find a parking spot. The place was rockin’.
Central has won the last two conference titles while East has won the last two post-season meetings.
In the next two weeks, the Lancers host Sussex Hamilton and travel to Menomonee Falls while the Spartans are at Germantown and host West Allis Hale.
Good luck to BC Coach Jed Kennedy & BE coach Ben Farley the rest of the way.
