As The Football Season Approaches Its Finish Line, Cal-Hi Sports Editor Mark Tennis Joins The Show To Help Preview CIF State Bowl Weekend •

It’s our last weekend of games, and hosts Chace and Ben are trying not to get emotional. Instead, they pour their energy into an hour of CIF State Bowl conversation. 

The show welcomes Cal-Hi Sports co-founder and editor Mark Tennis for the second time this season. As someone who maintains the most-recognized state football rankings, there’s no better person to preview some of the biggest bowl matchups this weekend. Tennis shares his thoughts on the bowl games themselves as we reach the 15th anniversary of the CIF bowl era, and offers up a variety of insight on the five large division games being played at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo this Friday and Saturday.

Coach Terry Eidson makes his weekly appearance and shares his thoughts on Folsom’s seismic NorCal regional win over De La Salle. He also empathizes with Serra-San Mateo coach Patrick Walsh who is preparing to face National No. 1 Mater Dei-Santa Ana in the Open Division bowl. Eidson has plenty of experience preparing to face SoCal powerhouses, and revisits some unhappy memories to add insight to the process Serra is going through before Saturday’s 8:30 p.m. kickoff.

Finally, Chace, Ben and Coach Eidson share game picks for the final time this season.
