BARRING A last-minute miracle, West Catholic will be idle for Week No. 1 of the high school football season.
Coach Brian Fluck, also the school's athletic director, said Monday that West has canceled its Saturday night opener vs. Eastern Christian (Md.) Academy, or National Connections Academy (an online outfit), or whatever it's being called today.
The school, formerly known as Red Lion Christian in Bear, Del., was featured last week in Sports Illustrated. The headline, among other things, said the school " . . . has no listed phone number. It isn't even a school."
