The 2019 high school football season is just around the corner, and the annual football coaches show is coming up next week on Lake 102.3 FM.
This year’s show will take place on Tuesday night, August 13th at 7 p.m. at CC’s Furniture, with yours truly interviewing all three local coaches, getting a feel for their respective teams and what the 2019 season may hold for each one of them.
Pulaski County head coach Johnny Hines will kick things off at 7 p.m., followed by Somerset Briar Jumper head coach Robbie Lucas at 7:20 p.m., and ending with first-year Southwestern head coach Jason Foley at 7:40 p.m.
“We are very pleased and glad to have the opportunity once again to bring the coaches show to all of our local high school football fans in the Lake Cumberland area,” stated Rod Zimmerman, Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartRadio of Somerset.
“We would also like to say a very special thank you to Mr. Brad Carroll and everyone at CC’s Furniture for sponsoring our coaches show, and allowing us to do it at their venue,” Zimmerman added. “And, we are also very grateful to the Don Franklin Family of Dealerships for being our title sponsor of local high school football once again this year.”
The Pulaski County Maroons will take on Lexington Catholic on Friday night August 23rd in the first game of the annual Don Franklin Bowl at Southwestern High School beginning at 6 p.m., with the homestanding Warriors taking on the Belfry Pirates, as the Jason Foley era gets underway at Southwestern in a very tough opener for his club against a mountain powerhouse.
Both of those games will be on your only source of Pulaski County and Southwestern football on the radio this season — LAKE 102.3 FM — as Melanie Hines and I will be bringing you all of the exciting action, kicking off on the opening night of the season with our pregame show at around 5:45 p.m.
Meanwhile, the Somerset Briar Jumpers will be hosting Rockcastle County on August 23rd at 7:30 p.m., playing their first ever game on a brand new turf field.
So, there’s a lot to talk about, so join me on the annual coaches show on LAKE 102.3 FM on Tuesday night, August 13th from CC’s Furniture beginning at 7 p.m.
Come out and support your favorite team and check out all of the great deals and prices Brad Carroll and company will have on hand at CC’s Furniture.
