It's almost (high school) football time in Tennessee - 08/19/14
We're looking forward to another exciting season of high school football. Dave Foster, Dan Phillips, and I love bringing you the action on FOX Football Friday.
Look for a little role-reversal this season. Dave is normally out in the field, and I usually anchor from the studio. But this season, we're changing things up. I'll be live at a game site, and Dave will be holding down the fort with Dan at our Mainstream Drive headquarters.
There are several reasons for this change. One - Dave wouldn't mind being in the climate-controlled studio for the first time in seven years (he's been beaten up by the elements long enough). Two - I want to get out to some of the stadiums after more than a decade in studio on Friday nights (it gives me a chance to interact with the coaches and student-athletes more). And three - FRIDAY NIGHT RIVALS!
Friday Night Rivals is the broadcast produced by our sister station. Each Friday night, the MyTV30 crew will bring you one of the big games of the week. I'll be a part of that broadcast in addition to my duties for FOX 17.
The entire season schedule for Friday Night Rivals can be found below. Coverage begins at 7:00 pm.
I'm looking forward to being at the games!
Just wonder if I'll feel that way in November when the weather is freezing, and Dave is making fun of me from the comforts of our warm FOX 17 studio.
