It was a championship season for the Lawndale football team in 2018. The Cardinals won the Ocean League title, followed by the CIF-Southern Section Division 5 championship, the Division 2-A SoCal Regional championship and a CIF State championship. Sixteen games and four championships. That's an impressive haul. “Memorable season, historic season,” Lawndale coach Travis Clark said. “Really proud of the kids, really happy of the way they went out. We were grinding for three years or so to get to that point, and it feels good to get to that level and accomplish that goal.” Getting to the top takes a lot of work, effort and sweat. Staying there requires the same, and that's the plan as the Cardinals
Small towns love their high school football team. So much so, that every year around this time there are scam artists who try to prey upon that pride to get money from local businesses.

But the money doesn't go to support the team, and the items may never be printed. “It's a sports calendar of some sort. It's going to have ads around it, and a sports schedule. And I have yet to see any of these magnets or posters,” said Stevie Kearse, executive director of the Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce. Kearse said even that

Friday night is special. School spirit is in the air. The lights go on at the stadium and their glow is seen across the community. Crowds pack large municipal stadiums and small high school fields. The colors are vivid, the pageantry is on full display, and the energy is palpable. Hope springs eternal as the season starts anew. I have a confession. I miss Friday nights. I played my last high school football game in Apalachicola 26 years ago, but I still miss being on the field under those lights. I don't miss Monday through Thursday though. I don't miss two-a-day practices before school started in hot and humid August weather, blocking and tackling drills, and wind sprints when you were exhausted.

LIBERTY — The motto for coach Kyle Stewart from spring practice through the summer has been to keep injuries low and interest high. In doing so, the Red Devils spent most of that working on fundamentals and the basic understanding of their philosophies. “This is a teaching period, I don't want to run kids off,” Stewart said. “I want them to come out here, have success and find their niche.” Though they haven't had many intense practices over the spring/summer, Stewart increased the intensity during
Prep football participation may be down in California, but that trend doesn't appear to be playing out in Marin. According to data released Aug. 8 by the California Interscholastic Federation, participation numbers in the state for 11-man high school football decreased for the fourth consecutive year, down to 91,305.
