High school football season kicks off tonight

September 6, 2012

The temptation to overlook this week’s non-league gridiron slate is great, understanding that league play – set to commence a week from now – serves as judge, jury and executioner.
Over time, principles rooted in Darwinism help in separating the wheat from the chaff by performing the simple act of drawing a line right down the middle. Such a divide won’t begin on Friday night as teams partake in what could essentially be chalked up to the final installment after nearly four weeks of preseason camp.
