NDHS has some of the best star players in the entire country, including 3 top ten players(Wes horton;Defensive End,Anthony Mcdonald;Middle Linebacker, and Dayne Crist; Quarterback).Wes Horton is the #8 ranked DE in the country, the #1 DE in California. Anthjony Mcdonald is the #5 MLB in the country, the #1 MLB in California, and Dayne Crist is the #2 Quarterback in the country, the #1 Quarterback in California.

NDHS won 3 consecutive CIF championship, in 2002,2003,and 2004. Notre Dame also had a 36 game winning streak and when NDHS moved to the Serra League from the Mission League, they won every league championship except one.

Notre Dame High School does not have one of the best football teams in California.

San Diego (the Chargers), San Francisco (49ers), Oakland (the Raiders), USC (Trojans), UCLA (Bruins), Cal (Bears), and Stanford football teams could all easily defeat Notre Dame High School in a football game.

The NDHS football team should not be considered one of the best football teams in California unless it can be considered in the top 5 teams in California. That means that the NDHS team would need to be able to defeat two of the seven teams above, as well as any of the other teams in California.

The affirmative must prove that the NDHS football team can defeat the football teams of colleges and professional teams in California. Otherwise, the affirmative has lost the round.

robizzle forfeited this round.

Con

My opponent has yet to answer my arguments, thus

They conceed that to be one of the best football teams in California, the NDHS football team must be within the top five teams in the state. My opponent has not proven that this is the case.

So essentially, vote for me, there are many football teams in California that are better than the NDHS football team.

Con

My opponent has forfeited his/her rounds twice now. They have agreed to my definition of what the best teams are and he/she has been unable to prove that NDHS football team is among the best teams in California.

So vote for me!

Congrats Zarul for winning this debate. I can't see two more rounds after that smackdown and trying to change the terms now is pretty hard to do.

He doesn't say that they have one of the best HIGH SCHOOL football teams. He says they have one of the "best football teams in California" -- I think the Raiders, Chargers, 49ers and every college team in the state could CRUSH them.

They aren't even in the top 20 as far as teams in California.

You can't debate a fact. If they're ranked near the top, that's a true statement. If they aren't, it's a false statement. There's nothing here to debate.
