Memphis is a basketball town, and after hitting four high school football fields in two and a half hours, I have fresh evidence that Memphis loves its football too.
Memphis-area high school football was in full effect Friday night as the 2013 season got underway. Attendance was high at the four games I attended, with pumped-up fans already in mid-season form.
Melrose, with its legendary Orange Mound community support on display, wasted no time making a statement to MAHS by going into halftime with a 32-2 halftime lead. It was a halftime that featured a Melrose band that had the crowd grooving. The MAHS offense never got on track as Melrose romped 42-2.
