2014 High School Football Schedule Unveiled

In Short:
FOX Sports Radio 1230 will be producing and broadcasting ten regular season High School Football games during the upcoming 2014 season.  The season begins on Saturday, September 6th when the NYSPHSAA Class A defending champions, the Queensbury Spartans, host the Niskyauna Silver Warriors.

In the third year of airing high school sports, FOX Sports Radio 1230, WMML, announces that they will produce and air ten regular season High School Football games this fall.

The broadcasts begin Saturday, September 6th when the defending Class A State Champion Queensbury Spartans take on the Niskayuna Silver Warriors in a non-conference game at Queensbury High School.  It will be the first time at home for the Spartans since winning the title last November at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse.

Fort Edward's first home as a combined squad with the Argyle Scots will be featured the following week when they host the Hoosic Valley Indians.  In Week 3, the Hudson Falls Tigers host the Ichabod Crane Riders in Ichabod Crane's second ever trip to the Washington County school.  Last year Ichabod Crane lost a Week 9 Crossover game 40-12.

Week 4 features the first of three playoff rematches, as the Cohoes Tigers travel up to play the Glens Falls Indians at Putt LeMay Field.  The Tigers last year eliminated the Glens Falls Indians 42-19 before getting eliminated themselves against Broadalbin-Perth in the Semifinals.

Friday Night Lights begins on FOX Sports Radio 1230 in Week 5 when the Hudson Falls Tigers play the Glens Falls Indians in the Jug Game on Friday, October 3rd.  It will be the first year of the cross-river rivalry on FOX Sports Radio 1230, with Glens Falls winning last year's edition in late theatrics to continue their strong grip on the jug.

On Saturday, October 4th, the combined squads from Cambridge and Salem will travel up to the northern reaches of Section 2 when they play a Saturday afternoon game against the Whitehall Railroaders in another game that is a rematch of a playoff game last year.  Last year the Cambridge Indians disposed of the Railroaders in the Quarterfinals on their way to a Sectional Championship before losing to Moriah in the State Regionals.

The second Friday Night Lights game will be in Week 6 when Chatham Panthers travel up north to face the new combined team from Lake George and Hadley/Luzurne. The following day will be homecoming at South Glens Falls, as the Bulldogs host the Queensbury Spartans in an afternoon game at South High.

The second Friday Night Lights game is on Friday, October 10th, and features local teams Queensbury and South Glens Falls.  Originally scheduled for October 11th, the two teams will play under the lights at South High in their Homecoming Game.  The following day, Warrensburg will be on the air for the first of two straight Saturdays when they travel to Cambridge.

The regular season wraps up with a rematch of last year's Super Bowl, with the Queensbury Spartans and the Burnt Hills Spartans playing at Union College in Schenectady on Friday, October 17th.  Last year the Queensbury Spartans were on the verge of falling to Burnt Hills in the Super Bowl when Kody Bruno ran in for a 21 yard touchdown with less than 90 seconds left to play to give Queensbury the lead for good.

On Saturday, October 18th, the final regular season game will feature the Fort Edward/Argyle squad traveling over to the Southern Adirondacks to face the Warrensburg Burghers.

The 10 game schedule does not include any playoff games, as they will be determined based on local teams and will be announced prior to the end of the regular season.

All broadcasts will begin 15 minutes prior to kickoff with the "FOX Sports Radio 1230 Warmup" pregame show, featuring game previews and coach interviews.
