HTSN play-by-play announcer Greg Rakestraw is ready for some football! “When i go to a lot of these high school football games in the metro area—if people want to have a bit of a small town feel, football has it. This is different than other major metro areas where it’s not one game that’s going to pull in 10,000 people, but amazingly, there are fifteen to twenty games around here that draw 4,000 people. So many of these high schools are so well supported.” And, Rakestraw adds that LC puts on one whale of a barbecue on game nights!
