I covered my first football game for the Sun-Times in 1984.
I attended my first high school football game in 1960.
But I never attended a better high school game than last night's Naperville North-Wheaton Warrenville South three overtime thriller.
The effort from both teams was mind boggling
Jordan Tassio, the Naperville quarterback, started slow but finished by scoring four touchdowns on his last four carries
And the effort of the WW South players would have made Red Grange proud
I get a feeling that a lot of the games of the year and games of the century don't live up to the hype
This game did and then some
And I left with a feeling that maybe I saw two state champions playing their regular season finales
I'm off to Addison now for Montini-Driscoll, perhaps two more teams that could carry the big trophies off the field at Memorial Stadium in Champaign on Thanksgiving weekend.
