When is too early indeed too early?

Evangel played a football game on national television Thursday night.

Unfortunately that has become a ho-hum, run-of-the-mill kinda thing for the Eagles. And that's not necessarily a good thing for anyone involved.

High school football is becoming increasingly national in scope and that is taking away from what the game should be about. High school athletics is supposed to be about sportsmanship and teaching lessons players can use in life not about turning your local high school into a nationally known entity.

The same thing goes for events like the Little League World Series. There comes a point when we should just let kids be kids.

Sure it's a great thing for Evangel and Southlake Carroll and the dozens of other high school football teams who will play on national television this season. It's just a shame those same networks who broadcast those games are sending such mixed messages.
