If you need someone to fly a drone, call a football manager

Los Angeles Times

Eric Sondheimer has been covering high school sports for the Los Angeles Times since 1997 and in Southern California since 1976. It's the hottest new toy in high school football: drones flying above practice fields filming practices. It's only a matter of time before someone has a drone football manager competition to see who can be the next F-16 pilot using remote control. At Loyola High, junior football manager Gabriel Danaj received a $1,500 drone from his grandmother as a gift and offered to use it to film Loyola practices.
