As De La Salle At Folsom Week Arrives, The Show Breaks Down The Big Game And Other Topics With NorCal Media Stalwarts, Joe Davidson And Mark Tennis •
This week features NorCal’s biggest intersectional matchup of the season when De La Salle-Concord pays a visit to Folsom High. The game between the Spartans and Bulldogs has been circled by many fans for months, and the intrigue has only multiplied now that De La Salle’s NorCal unbeaten streak was halted by St. Francis-Mountain View back in mid-September. Naturally, hosts Chace and Ben spend a lot of time talking about this game and its ramifications for both teams involved and how it fits into the season’s bigger picture.
To join in their conversation, the hosts welcomed longtime Sacramento Bee Prep Sports Editor, Joe Davidson, and Cal-Hi Sports co-founder and editor, Mark Tennis. Together, the guys not only break down the big game in Folsom (complete with a few predictions), but also share thoughts on some of the themes to the first half of the season and on some of the other teams that have really stood out.
The jam-packed episode also features weekly guest, Coach Terry Eidson. He knows a thing or two about facing off against Folsom. Coach shares a few of his thoughts on the game and then compares Clayton Valley-Concord coach Tim Murphy to The Who, The Rolling Stones and KISS. It’s true. Finally, weekly predictions are shared on a number of big matchups this week.
