Flipping channels, and Bishop Gorman (LV) v. Centennial (Corono, CA) is on ESPNU (perhaps ESPNHS needs to be a channel).
Really don't care who wins, but I am struck by two things

1) High schools travel 4 hours (drive) or fly to play a game? What?

2) Bishop Gorman's stadium is amazing. Nicer than some FCS schools (even though only" 5k cap), and maybe even an FBS or two.

And this isnt even Texas.

4 hours for a game isn’t a big deal - we’d travel 7 or 8 in high school each year and had district games 2 hours away. Big teams fly across the state. Districts in west Texas have schools 3 hours apart.

Yea, Texas HS football is a different breed than anywhere else on the country.

My son's XC team has three, maybe four meets that are 3+ hours away. And we live in southern New England. For better or for worse, everyone travels now.

3 hours by foot or motorized vehicle?

Can’t they just run there and back as the meet?
