There is quite a lot of top level high school football being played this weekend in Cincinnati. There are games Friday night and all day Saturday at Nippert Stadium and Welcome Stadium in Dayton in addition to the normal high school venues. Tickets are usually less than $10 and the atmosphere is far better than at a Bengals game. If you are too lazy or otherwise uninterested in attending the game, several local teams will be featured on regional and national television. In a year where professional football is down, it looks like a great year is in store for local high school and college teams.

And for that matter, there is a lot of Division III in the area too that is affordable - Thomas More, MSJ, etc.

Everyone, I'm sure, has their own opinion on what level of football generates the "better" atmosphere, be it prep, college or pro. I happen to fall in the college crowd. There's nothing that beats Saturday afternoons at Ohio Stadium for a Buckeyes game. And when the Bengals are winning, the atmosphere in the Jungle is pretty special too.

And I always feel awkward going to a high school game being played by two schools that I didn't ever attend or have a family member playing in.

I agree high school games just feel better if a family member is playing for one of the teams. But here in Mason a group of seniors formed a sort of booster club for the girls basketball team. In addition to attending home games they travel to quite a few away games and also tournament games if Mason makes it. The girls have really appreciated the support.
