Before 7 Friday Night hosts Chace and Ben dive into an enticing week of high school football matchups, a slightly disgruntled Ben calls for a Football Festivus and an Airing of Grievances. In a get-off-my-lawn digression, Ben shares his thoughts on some recent fan behavior — both good and bad — and dissects the merits (or lack thereof) in students storming the field following a win.
Once the Festivus is concluded, there’s still plenty of football talk to go around. The hosts welcome Nicholas Coronado — the prolific senior quarterback for undefeated Kimball High of Tracy — to talk about Jaguars football, playing in the tough Valley Oak League, and putting a young school and program on the map.
Coach Terry Eidson also makes his weekly stop and breaks down De La Salle’s nationally-televised showdown with St. Frances Academy-Baltimore. Ben and Chace also ask him to share what national TV game weeks are like, having been part of of them for many years with the Spartans. And finally, all three weigh in with game predictions for a dynamite Week 7 schedule across NorCal.
