New York High School Football Huddle

It's been a week since Truman High School football star Isayah Muller was stabbed just hours after graduating.

Tuesday, hundreds gathered to pay their respects at a week in the Bronx for the player, who was killed after an apparent argument between his father and attendants at a Bronx parking facility. The family was on its way to a graduation dinner.

Muller was one of the key members of Truman that won the New York City Public Schools Athletic League championship by beating Beach Channel High School 23-20 in the PSAL Bowl.

Muller had plans to attend Nassau Community College.

Funeral services will be held Thursday.

Bronx Football Team Still Coming-up a Little Short When It Comes to Home Football Games

I came across this interesting story out of New York City about a high school football team that was hoping to play its first home game this year.

Lehman High School in the Bronx hasn't been able to play a home game because it only has a field that is 80-yards long. The Department of Education gave the school $5 million dollars to renovate Lehman's multi-purposed field to include new lights, new bleachers and a new baseball diamond.

According to the CBS 2 story below, players thought the renovation would include an extra 20-yards being added to the football field. That didn't happen, so once again, Lehman will play all of its games on the road.
