I'm sorry, but although I agree with you on many aspects regarding this discussion, I think many of your above comments are off-the-mark. When I was at Benedictine, there certainly were not any...

Shaker Heights High School (public) has no stadium lights because the residents in the surrounding neighborhood are against it. However this is not really an "us vs. them" issue because many of the...

Bingo. I like this squad, but we're not talking about them alongside previous state champions until they also bring home the hardware.
