Behind the Scenes of Evansville High School Football [VIDEO]

Just like in the Wizard of Oz, I’m pulling back the curtain and giving you a glimpse of what it takes place during a live broadcast of an Evansville high school football team.

As you may or may not know, I was given the opportunity to be the color commentator for high school football coverage on our sister-station, Newstalk 1280, WGBF-AM. Being a huge football fan and always wanting to give sports broadcasting a shot, I jumped a the chance. That was three years ago, and I have no intentions of stopping anytime soon.

Something else I enjoy is discovering how things work and what goes on behind the scenes of television, movies, etc. With that in mind, I broke out my phone and shot a quick video before things got rolling during the Reitz versus Central Sectional semifinal at the Reitz Bowl on Friday night.

The play you saw was at some point during the second half. The game turned out to be pretty amazing as Central erased a 28-7 deficit at halftime to force overtime which saw Reitz make the gutsy call of going for a two point conversion to win the game.

The Panthers will take on Jasper at Jasper Friday night at 7pm Evansville time for the Sectional title.
