2009 football schedule is up, and it's good

Our 2009 master football schedule has been posted. Every week, every team, every league.

Well, we're missing just a handful of things that we know of: we need a full schedule from Niagara Catholic, some schools which had scheduled Brocton and Walsh will have to reschedule due to those schools not fielding teams, and we may be missing some nonleague games for Harvard Cup teams. 

Coaches/athletic directors are stressed to get us any information we are missing, and also to let us know of any changes in date, time, site or opponent as soon as possible via sports@buffnews.com, kmcshea@buffnews.com or 849-4461.

Make a note of this: The football schedule is linked at the top of our high school home page for quick reference.

At a first glance, I'm impressed by the number of public-private games on the schedule, including Jamestown at Canisius and Southwestern at St. Mary's in Week Three and Fredonia at Cardinal O'Hara in Week Five.

The game that may have jumped out at me the most was Sweet Home at Iroquois in Week Five -- that's been a usual postseason matchup of two teams which had been in separate divisions in the now-combined Class A.

It's great to see Orchard Park going outside its league for a nonleague game! Although it is paired up wiht a Section V school (Victor) rather than one from the Monsignor Martin Association. Sigh. 

But that's just to kick things off. I'll certainly have more to say once we get closer to the season.
