High School Football Stars' Futures Tracked By Daily News

For at least the past two days (maybe longer), the Daily News has been tracking on their home page where some of Los Angeles' high school football players will be going to college.

If you're curious, it looks like a lot of Notre Dame and UCLA. But to me, the list seems so out of place. On one hand, it does give reading the paper that nice hometown feel (if I had any idea who any of these kids are). On the other hand, Los Angeles is a huge city, not a little town in Texas (not that there's anything wrong with that). It's a little jarring to open up a pretty major paper and see pictures of high school kids posed like pro players splashed across the front page.
