Want to see every District 9 football team play this year?
Then you are in luck. It can be done. You can see all 23 teams play over the course of 13 days during the 2021 season.
The trip starts tonight, Friday, Aug. 27, at one of the top facilities in District 9 when DuBois travels to Clearfield in a rivalry game.
It continues Saturday, Aug. 28, with an afternoon game in Duke Center where Otto-Eldred hosts Port Allegany.
So, one weekend in, and four teams down already.
Continuing on the journey, a trip to Smethport is in store Friday, Sept. 3, as the Hubbers host Brockway.
The following two weeks trips to Butler County are on tap with Karns City hosting Central Clarion County Sept. 10 and Moniteau hosting Bradford Sept. 17.
A trip to beautiful Wolverine Mountain on Sept. 18 puts two more teams in the books with Redbank Valley traveling to Sheffield.
Staying up north the next weekend, Punxsutawney travels to Kane on Sept. 24 and Port Allegany hosts Coudersport on Sept. 25.
With the calendar turning to October, three games in eight days help things along.
On Oct. 1, Cameron County plays at Elk County Catholic at St. Marys High School.
Then a Thursday game is on tap on Oct. 7 when Union/A-C Valley makes the short trip to Knox to take on the host Keystone Panthers.
The next night, Oct. 8, it’s back to St. Marys High School as the St. Marys Dutch play host to Brookville.
Oct. 15 means a trip to Johnsonburg and Memorial Stadium where Ridgway plays hosts to Karns City.
The journey ends the following Friday, Oct. 22, when Moshannon Valley hits the road to Curwensville in a renewal of a long-standing rivalry that went away when the Golden Tide joined the AML two decades ago.
While a trip like this can be done in D9 because of the limited number of teams. It would be impossible to pull off in D10. There are too many teams and not enough days.
