Rocklin High Wideout Nathan Kent Joins The Show To Chat Thunder Football, Plus Hosts Chace And Ben Tackle Extreme Weather Games & Embrace Halloween Week •
This week, Chace and Ben welcome Rocklin High senior receiver Nathan Kent to the show.

The show also embraces the Halloween Spirit this week as Ben answers some spooky-themed NorCal football questions. For instance, what’s the offensive line best fit for creating one’s escape path in a zombie apocalypse?
