(Why isn't Frederick generally considered a DC suburb if Calvert/Charles/ Loudon (VA)/ Prince Williams (VA) are?)

Anyone watch high school ball? I've been out of high school ten years, but still love to catch a game on Friday nights. I find something charmingly all-american about it.

Damascus/Seneca Valley/Urbana/Linganore

Frederick is considered a part of DC metro area according to Census designations. We had a discussion a few years back about this, and I think the consensus was that Frederick City was best defined as a "edge city." A community that existed before suburbanization and remains a regional hub within the larger metro area.

I have been to some Urbana games. Pretty good atmosphere. Of course, if you want to experience the best high school football scene in Maryland, you have to come up to Cumberland to watch Fort Hill or Allegany play. We have a stadium that holds about 8,000 people (this includes hillsides), and the average game between local teams draws about 4,000-5,000. Fort Hill is especially known for its rabid fans. They travel and normally outnumber the home fans of their opponents when they play out of town. Of course, Homecoming is the best scene of the year. The stadium is packed with Red and Blue (and me in Burgundy!) and the pagentry and traditions are more similar to what you would see at the college level.
