Serra High Coach Patrick Walsh Joins The Show As He Preps His Team To Play In The Biggest Game Of A Huge Week Of NorCal Action •
Christmas comes early to San Mateo this week as Serra High hosts St. Francis-Mountain View in a massive game that will determine a number of things, including: NorCal’s No. 1-ranked team, the top seed in the Central Coast Section Open Div. playoffs and, oh yeah, the West Catholic Athletic League championship. Serra coach Patrick Walsh joins the show to talk about the Padres’ 8-0 season so far, what getting ready for this game has been like, and what he expects this coming Saturday.
As an added bonus, Coach Terry Eidson makes an extra appearance this week to join in on the chat with Coach Walsh, his former player and coaching colleague. Eidson also records his own segment and discusses Inglewood High’s controversial 106-0 blowout in the Southern Section last week while also making picks on a few games. (And maybe adding a horse racing tip!)
