If you joined us last week for the online broadcast, we surely do appreciate it! It's also good to note that myself and Andy Blevins were just fill-ins. Our real on-air talent is still doing Appalachian League baseball and will be joining us soon! (We hope!) Also, if you like what we do and want to help us, we could use sponsors. Keep that in mind if you know any local business owners who share a passion for high school football. That could really help us out. Currently, to extend past this coming week, we'll need some assistance.
Player of the Week articles will be coming later this week but before we look backward to last week, let's go ahead and look forward to this Friday! It's the Week 2 Slate and Fun Facts edition brought to you by: Carter's Pharmacy in Saltville. Thanks Carter's Pharmacy!
Hogo GameDay hopes to broadcast the play-by-play for this one live on Friday night! Here's a smart idea: Bring your phone and some headphones to the game you're going to and watch that game WHILE you listen to this one. Smart, eh? Or, don't want to leave the house? No problem, just go here and listen. spreaker.com/user/hogonetwork We'll be there waiting for ya! (Once we get permission from Marion of course...)
(Not sure about 2015 yet!)
At 6:45 this link will change from what you see currently to Marion at Chilhowie. Just click play to join us!
Five years ago on the Hogo's 40th Anniversary, I published a number of articles here that encapsulated some of the greatest football moments in the history of the Hogo. The articles were a hit as former players and coaches emailed and reached out to thank me for reminding them of their proudest moments. I had no idea the articles could mean so much to people and the series became one of my favorite things I've ever done in relation to this website.
Five years later we celebrate 45 years of the Hogoheegee and though districts aren't what they once were, great games still exist today as they did before five years ago. Join us again this year as we take some trips down memory lane. Our first installment of the season is timely as the two teams featured here also meet again this Friday night. Check it out!
When: Friday, September 10, 2010
Where: Radford High Stadium – Radford, VA
Billboard Top 100 #1 Hit: “Love the Way You Lie” - Eminem ft. Rihanna
The Hype: No hype is typically required for a matchup between Radford and George Wythe. The two teams have faced each other 69 times as of this writing; six of those times were in the post-season. They shared a conference and district for nearly fifty years before being split into the Three Rivers and Hogoheegee. They renewed their longstanding rivalry that had ended in 1989 again a decade later and have played each other every year since 1999. Historically, win or lose, each team eventually makes the playoffs where they face each other again nearly a third of the time.
I don't have all the 2015 helmet updates yet so consider this week a helmet history lesson!

Tonight the Holston Cavaliers play host to the Eastern Montgomery Mustangs in a pre-season benefit contest. We'll be on the scene to provide some play-by-play from the booth. This will be mine and Andy Brown's first stab at this as our more talented cohorts are tied up this weekend.
Check us out here 15 minutes before kickoff! Follow us on Twitter @HogoOnline for more updates from around the area!
