Media coverage of Big East 3-A Conference Football Openers

If you can't attend the opening night of Big East Conference high school football action Friday evening, you will have other options to keep up with what will be going on in Red Oak, Rocky Mount and Wilson.

Wilson Hunt @ Northern Nash 

Right now, this contest can be followed via the Internet at . Wilson County announcer Alton Britt will be simulcasting his WLLY 1350 AM radio signal (which Nash/Edgecombe residents generally can't pick up) on his website, so anyone in the world can listen in! 

F.T. Franks will handle the color duties on the broadcast.

Southern Nash @ Wilson Fike

You will have two options for this game - listen to your radio or listen on line.

Paul Andre and Bob Maloney will provide the coverage for this clash on WDLX 99.3 FM beginning at 7 p.m. For those who may live too far away to pick up this very strong FM signal, you can click on this link  WDLX 99.3 FM and you may listen to the game on your computer or cell phone.

Nash Central @ Rocky Mount

Currently, there will be no radio stations or TV broadcasts of this game. WHIG TV, which is scheduled to tape the Wilson Hunt- Northern Nash game (with Wes Bradshaw and Edward Greene) for broadcast Saturday morning and Sunday evening, may pick up this game due to its recent emotional implication into the Bulldogs' program.

The school saw one of its student-athletes, John Stanley, pass away last week. The football team and cheerleaders plan to honor Stanley in a pregame tribute. WHIG would like to be there to share those moments, along with an emotion-filled game with all area fans who cannot be there.
But prior commitments may forced the crew to go to Red Oak. We'll see what happens!
