- RM head coach Dickie Schock
Looks like WZAX 99.3 FM will be carrying high school football games this season, after all.
I had heard the station wasn't going to do a "Game of the Week" this season, but apparently my sources were wrong. I ran into its play-by-play guy Paul Andre at the Big East Conference's coaching meeting last week and he provided me a list of games the station, now known as Jammin' 99.3, will be broadcasting.
As a great number of its advertisers are in Wilson County, a great many of the 12 games it will carry will involve Wilson County high schools.
Here is the schedule, which includes three Rocky Mount games with new head coach Dickie Schock. All the Nash County games are in bold:
