The other Notre Dame pulls off road upset

Florio52

Will there be an update every time my kid’s high school team wins a game?  Probably not.  But for a squad that was freshman-heavy and victory-challenged in 2011, Friday night’s opener for a very small Catholic school on the road against a much larger public school was a no-lose proposition, since everyone expected Clarksburg Notre Dame to lose.

They didn’t.

Florio Jr.’s team gutted out a back-and-forth 30-27 win.  Up 14-0 and eventually behind 20-17 with the home team in the red zone, a fumble recovery turned into a six-play, 90-yard drive that turned the thing around for good.

I could go on.  (And on.)  But if you’re inclined to get more details you can check out the highlights in Part 3 of the WDTV Fifth Quarter, hosted by a guy whom you may remember from our old PFTV days.

    As long as Joe Brocato is in there, I am good. Hope he still plays a huge role in PFT now that you are big time. On another note where is Greg?

    For us that have been here before nbc, we have seen both this site and Jr grow, proud to see him doing well! Is the band still together?

    Great stuff. I have been following the site since about 2006 maybe longer and it is funny that I have seen this kid play in a rock band and now football. Proud of Florio Jr.

    It’s your son so feel free to ramble on and on any chance you get. Time goes fast with kids and as a father with your resources (this site) you should take advantage!

    Whatever happened to Taco Bill? Haven’t seen a pic from him in quite some time.

    West Virginia is not exactly a powerhouse of High School football.

    Neat story mike. You dont have to apologize or remind us that youre not going to let us know about each of your sons games. I think its cool that you show some fatherly love and being proud of your son. Congrats to his team.

    I was half expecting to see Dante Alighieri, a real blast from the past. Joe Brocato is a more recent addition and subtraction from PFT….

    Good job to Florio, Jr. Glad to see he isn’t playing soccer!
