Tune-in for Tonight's High School Football America Radio Show at 7PM EST

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

Big and small will be on tonight's High School Football America radio show.

Last year, the Pearland Oilers put together an incredible season that saw the team beat Euless Trinity in the Texas 5A Division 1 championship game.  Trinity entered that game ranked #1 in the nation, by just about every national ranking service.

Tonight, Tony Heath, who's turned around the Oilers fortunes in the last 15-years, will join me on the show that starts at 7PM EST.

Also on tonight's show will be Phil Stambaugh, head coach at Pius X High School in Roseto, Pennsylvania.  Stambaugh, who is in his second year at his alma mater, is in-charge of America's small high school playing 11-man football.  The Royals has 54-players on this year's roster with less than 100 boys in the school in grades 9-12.

Listeners will then be taken north to Alaska to meet Jason Caldarera, head football coach at Service High.  The Cougars, who finished runner-up in last year's Large Schools' championship game, opened the 2011 regular season in the Fire and Ice Bowl last Thursday against Leilehua High School in Hawaii.

My final guest is Mark Tabb, co-author of the new high school football book called The Sacred Acre.  The story looks at the life of former Aplington-Parkersburg head football coach Ed Thomas, who was murdered in June, 2009 by one of his former players.  The book, which was co-authored by members of the Thomas family, looks at how the Thomas family and the community has rebounded for the horrible incident with grace through foregiveness.
