The following is a live post delivered via my mobile phone while at the Burke vs. Central football game held at Burke Stadium, on August 27, 2010.
This was a new experience for me. I lost connection once right after Jimmie Forsythe’s second score. So I was unable to immediately update the score.

Burke vs. Central Football 2010–Live Mobile Post, August 27, 2010:
Forsythe just scored 67 yards on option. Burke 7-0. Lampkin returns kickoff 76 yards. 7-7.
10-7 Central, after Burke fumble on long drive. Central then drives 50 yards to settle for FG. Central QB Burgess looks good. Lampkin having big game too. End of 1st QT. Central. D tough on the run against Burke.
Not much going on right now both teams struggle to run ball.
Half time. Score still 10-7 Central. Game is getting a little rough around the edges: too many penalties. A Central player got ejected towards the end of the second qtr. It almost cost them as Burke managed to continue the drive e and almost get into position to score before time expired.
Other than the penalties it’s a pretty good game that looks like it will be decided by a big play.
Lampkin impressive catching several passes and the big 76 yd kick return. Jimmie Forsythe is showing well too. I’m sure he has close to 100 yds at the half.
Still can’t tell if the Eagles are for real this year or Burke is coming out the gate weak.
I really like the Eagle’s D so far.
Let’s see if Burke coaches Limongi and Jackson can find an answer. Second half about to start.
Burke drives all the way to Eagle’s 2 and fumble again on bad shotgun snap.
Eagles drive all the way to Burke 30. Lampkin makes spectacular 35 yd catch, but Burke stops drive.
Lost connection. 2 scores by Forsythe–a beast putting team on back.
21-16 Burke. 3:14 left. Central scored on short drive with pass to 34.
2:16 Burke with ball. Timeout. Game over. Burke– 21-16.
A very hard hitting game featuring two of the state’s finest football players. Jimmie Forsythe and Teddy Lampkin. Great game by both. Forsythe had three scores and somewhere close to 200 on the ground.
