OK, Let's Get Ready for the Fall
Alright, I guess Summer is almost over and it's time to get ready for the Fall. That means school will start up again and another year of high school sports will get underway. Soccer, Cross-Country, Field Hockey and yes Football all will begin. Teams have already begun practicing and scrimmages will begin soon. It is an exciting time, it always is, when a new season gets underway. The anticipation of the first game breeds excitement - one that never gets old and one that gets me all the time. So get the fields ready, the equipment checked, and the schedules posted - Fall is coming and so are High School Sports - Football coverage begins on 960WELI, 960WELI.com and iheart radio on Thursday, September 13 and will go right through to the Championships in December. And so it begins!
