Color analyst will be Dave Lapham Sr., a Bengals offensive lineman from 1974-83, who just finished his 21st consecutive season as the analyst on Bengals radio broadcasts. He also works as a reporter/analyst for Cincinnati's WLWT-TV (NBC/Ch. 5) and is an analyst for Big 12 college games on FSN. Lapham has also done NFL games for NBC and FOX and has worked NFL Europe’s World Bowl game on Sporting News Radio.
Kicking things off one half hour prior to gametime is FSN Ohio’s pregame show, “High School Football Live.” Jeff Piecoro and pregame analyst/sideline reporter Dave Lapham Jr. host the show.
“FSN Ohio is excited to bring the inaugural season of the Toyota High School Game of the Week home to fans on Thursday nights,” said Steve Liverani, Senior Vice President and General Manager, FSN Ohio. “In the fall, high school football is a way of life in Southern Ohio, and we’re proud to feature some of the area’s biggest and brightest young stars as they showcase their skills this season.”
Not only will FSN Ohio, along with partner Don Schumacher and Associates Inc., be making a weekly contribution to the athletic departments of the competing schools, each week, the telecasts will promote the schools’ other sports and extra curricular activities through interviews with athletic directors, principals and other key faculty. And, of course, no football game is complete without getting the chance to see and hear the school bands perform at halftime.
