Some Love for the H-West

I had been slacking ass on the high school football season so far this year. With all the commotion going on at Rams Park, combined with the success of Mizzou, my high school alma mater, THE Hazelwood West High School kind of got lost in the shuffle. I should have been paying attention, because they churned out a 3-0 record (incl. two shutouts) heading into a huge game vs. #2 Hazelwood East last Saturday.

It's been well-established that East beats the crap out of us in football, and has been a powerhouse for years in the Suburban North Conference, and throughout the state of Missouruh.

Until now. There's a new sheriff in town, and thy name is Hazelwood West. They blew up the Eastside with that new-fangled never-throw-the-ball offensive attack.

You may think I'm joking, but in the 28-14 win, West threw the ball 10 times (completing 7)...while rushing 45 times. Down. Your. Froat.

So the H-West is now 4-0 on the season, with upcoming games vs. McCluer (4-0) and at Howell Central (0-4). I'm sure because of this blog post, they'll finish 4-6, but the Wildcats look legit with their Depression-era offense.

And hey, if they can beat teams that they haven't beaten since 1977, anything's possible.

(This is the school that graduated me with a 4.1 GPA, so another miracle is overdue)
