The Robert E. Lee Red Raiders returned home late Saturday night from the Buckeye state.
The Red Raiders lost their game with Cincinnati Colerain, 27 to 14.
Coach Mike Owens said it was a learning experience for him and his players, saying it was hard to keep teenagers focused on such a long trip and keep their mind on the game and not the hype.
He went on to say his team did not bring it in the first half and they were just out done.
"They're as a good as anybody we've ever played," Owens said. "There's no doubt. They're big fast. Great athletes, very disciplined but again they travelled for an hour we had to travel for a thousand miles."
Robert E. Lee will play Euless Trinity at TMF Rose Stadium on Friday.
