Re: Need advice on lens for HS football games!

I think you have two "problems."  Low light and high speed motion  and then distance to the action.  From the sideline, a 70-200/2.8 will handle nearby action pretty well.  The Tamron 70-180/2.8 is responsive and not terribly expensive.  If you are limited to shooting from the stands, you might have to look to longer lenses.

It might be worth verifying with the school what your shooting opportunities will be and maybe renting a 70-180 or 200 and the 200-600 just to see how they work in your situation and venue.
