I like having a big HS football game like this on a HS campus, and there is NO WAY Bosco was giving up the opportunity to host. But wow, considering the hype, interest and demand in a metro area of almost 20 million people, with only 5k seats in the stadium ... maybe this one should’ve been moved to a bigger venue?
Even for the league game at the Bowl last year, that was at what I believe is a 9k capacity venue.
Schedules and rental fees and other issues probably would have nixed a move even if it was considered in the summer (which it wasn’t), but somewhere like Cerritos or The Vet are in the relative area and would have had double the capacity at least, and SJB could have still taken all the gate.
But those 5-7k extra seat sales, concessions and parking fees probably aren’t worth as much to Monty McDermott and Jason Negro as the sheer accumulation of CLOUT, and eyeballs focused on Bosco, all gained from hosting this game on campus. And what should be an awesome atmosphere for both teams. Without a doubt will be the biggest single event ever hosted by the school (topping the TL Classic earlier this year). Maybe the biggest event ever in the City of Bellflower lol
Just putting it out there, just a thought, go easy folks lol
(Side note: is Negro really running the Bosco Football Twitter account from his house in HB? Or is that one of the brothers)
