Mass. High Schools: Introducing Our High School Football Coverage Plan


By Matt Noonan | @MattyNoonz11

Happy Friday, everyone!

With great excitement, I am happy to share (and introduce) our Noontime Sports high school football coverage plan, which will begin this month with some features (and previews) on a slew of Eastern Massachusetts football teams.

These previews will provide some early insight on each team heading into the upcoming season, as well as what they must do to reach Gillette Stadium in early December to compete in a Super Bowl.

Our previews will be posted here, but also promoted through our social media channels, too, including Twitter – make sure to follow @NoontimeSports (our site’s main handle) and @Noontime_FB for in-game coverage, scores, and future football posts.

Once the 2019 season begins, my goal is to cover one game per week – possibly two. We will let you (the fans and friends of our site) pick our ‘Game of the Week’ through a Twitter poll, which will feature four different contests. The poll will be posted every Tuesday morning on our site’s main Twiter handle, so again, make sure to follow @NoontimeSports so you can cast your vote for upcoming coverage.

We will announce our ‘Game of the Week’ every Thursday – I can’t wait for our first game!

In addition to game-day coverage, my plan is also to produce some weekly (or bi-weekly features) on teams, players and coaches. All ideas are welcome – please send pitches or story ideas to

With another high school football season fast approaching, I am super excited to get started with coverage – additionally, I am eager to meet with coaches and student-athletes to learn more about their upcoming campaigns, which begin in just a few weeks.
