BIG TIME SPORTS TELEVISION SCHEDULE
Big Time Sports will televise two critical games during week eight of the 2014 high school football season, and we’re throwing in some youth championship football coverage for good measure. Remember, you can see all of our television coverage from anywhere by plugging in to our mobile app.
Indian Valley (6-1, 4-0) hosts Triway (7-0, 4-0) in a matchup that will likely decide the PAC 7 championship, and channel four is the place for our southern viewers to watch this epic battle between two contrasting offenses Friday night at 10:30 and Saturday at noon.
Triway senior quarterback Parker Carmichael definitely floats the football through the air with the greatest of ease. Carmichael, who completes 75% of his passes, is rated second nationally with 2,715 passing yards. Not surprisingly, the Titans are averaging a robust 55 points per contest. carmichael threw four touchdown passes in last weeks 45-14 thumping of CVCA, and he now has 38 TD passes and just one interception on the season. The Titans closest margin of victory was 27 points in their 74-47 triumph over Waynedale.
Senior tailback Jack Davis and his Indian Valley teammates have unfinished business on their minds, because last year’s 35-34 loss to Triway cost the Braves a share of the 2013 PAC 7 crown. Davis ran for 149 yards and six touchdowns in last week’s 49-36 triumph over Manchester, and he’s now 15th on the state’s all time career rushing list with an astonishing 6,253 yards. The Braves are averaging seven yards per carry in 2014.
Time Warner channel 989 and Massillon cable 128 is the place for our northern viewers to watch Glenoak (4-3, 1-1) travel to take on Lake (4-3, 3-1) in a key Federal League contest. That game can be seen Saturday morning at 9 and Sunday night at 8.
Since its 35 -28 league opening loss to Jackson, Lake has bounced back with three impressive wins. The Blue Streaks recorded a 25-22 win over McKinley, a 10-6 triumph over Hoover and a solid 28-14 victory over Perry. Because Lake has only non league contests with Central Catholic and Boardman remaining, a win over Glenoak would give coach Dan De George’s squad a share of its first Federal League title since 1998. A lake victory would also mean that only the winner of this week’s McKinley-Perry tilt has a shot to claim a share of the title.
Glenoak is coming off back to back losses to McKinley (37-7) and St. Vincent St. Mary (28-20), although eight total turnovers are the primary reason for the Golden Eagles recent struggles. A win against Lake would put coach Scott Garcia’s club– which finishes at Hoover and home against Perry– right back into a jumbled league race.
We’re also going to show two championship games from the Northeast Ohio Youth Football Conference to our entire viewing area Monday at 6 and Tuesday at 9. You’ll see the grade 4 and 5 championship game, which will be followed by the grade 6 and 7 championship contest.
