To me, this is a very interesting week of high school football. The Thanksgiving holiday actually has a major impact on the teams that are playing and throws teams off their normal routine. Add the family holiday dynamic and the additional pressure of a semi-final game. The teams that handle it well will have a big advantage on Friday night.
I have to admit that I don't think CPA has handled this week well the the last two years. Both years, I think they came out flat and got behind early. I'm not really sure why or what a coach could do differently. Of course, Milan probably had a lot to do with that cause they had two great teams. It will be interesting to see if Coach Martin does anything different this year. Maybe having gone through this week twice the the past 2 years will make it easier on CPA this year. Milan sure had previous experience in semifinal games in prior years.
I'm looking forward to a hard fought, close game. I hoping the weather is good and dry!
