Football Season Dead Ahead
We're getting plans in place for our biggest and best season of football yet.
The Panthers come back to Wofford on Friday, July 27 to open training camp. Really high expectations for the team this year. With QB Cam Newton, last seasons NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year back for his sophomore season and a pretty good draft this spring it should be an exciting year.
We'll carry all the Panthers games again this season beginning with the first Pre Season game on Saturday, August 11th when they host Houston. The Panthers Coaches Show with Coach Ron Rivera will be heard on Monday nights statrting July 30th at 8pm.
The defending State Champion Byrnes Rebels are also getting ready for kickoff on Saturday, August 25th when they travel to Chesepeake, Virginia. This year Greg McKinney joins us as the Voice of the Rebels for all the play-by-play.
A new feature this season will be our own WORD Scoreboard show, "The Friday Night Wrap" hosted by "Lonzo" Writesel from our Saturday Scoreboard Show. We'll have all the scores plus interviews and highlights immediately following the Byrnes postgame.
Another new addition this year will be on Saturday mornings from 7-8 a.m., "Pigskin & Eggs". Ken Blankenship will host the live 1 hour broadcast from a local restaurant location to be announced later. He'll have a complete wrap up of all the action from here in the Upstate and around the state. You're invited to drop by for the broadcast. We'll let you know what the location will be shortly.
Another new feature this season will be an entire new webpage devoted to High School sports, beginning with football. This will be your one stop web location for all the scores and details from games. More to be announced about that later as well.
Of course Lonzo and Matt will be back for another season of the Upstate's best scores/information program, The Scoreboard Show on Saturday nights from 7-9pm. They'll wrap up all the college games and preview the NFL games each week.
So get ready for another great season of even more expanded coverage of the Panthers and High School Football here on WORD.
Stay tuned for more details soon!
