It is game day for the Augusta County High School Game of the Week on ESPN radio and this weeks contest will have a real VBL feel to it as we head down to Fishersville for a match-up between visiting Stuarts Draft and host Wilson Memorial High School.
The head football coach for the Green Hornets is none other than Mr. Derrick McDaniel of the Waynesboro Generals coaching staff. McDaniel spends his summers along side of Lawrence "Big Picture" Nesselrodt as the pair team up to guide Jim Critzer's baseball team in the months of May, June, July and August.
Chip Crabill and I will go on the air with the tail gate show at 6:30 PM and the contest is slated to start at 7:30 PM. McDaniel's team competes in the Class A Shenandoah District and this game will be their season opener. Stuarts Draft plays in the Class AA Southern Valley District and is guided by head coach Rod Bowers. The Cougars dropped a thrilling 35-28 contest to Broadway in their home opener last week and will be looking to rebound tonight against the Green Hornets.
The stadium at Wilson Memorial is the lone Augusta County facility that we didn't call a game at last season so I will be making my first trip down to 189 Hornets Road. There will hopefully be one more small piece of VBL/ Around the Valley in 60 Days business to take care of Friday night.
Daniel has finished the six Generals jackets for their Loopsters and I hope to be able to pass out a few of them while down in the area. Next up for Daniel will be his attempt to air brush 18 Turks logos on Teresa's fans jackets. Have you ever noticed the amount of detail in those Turks?
