There are few fans more dialed into high school football than those from the Greater Muskegon area.

One of the biggest followings is for the Muskegon Big Reds, the winningest football program in Michigan history – and No. 7 nation-wide.

With that credibility in mind, the LSJ is kicking off a weekly podcast, the “LSJ Muskegon Big Reds Football Coaches Show”, live every Wednesday night throughout the season.

The show begins this Wednesday, August 22, from 6:30-8 p.m. at Bella Maria’s Event Center (513 W. Pontaluna Rd) in Muskegon.

“We know Muskegon County is the strongest in the state when it comes to high school football,” said LSJ Publisher Jason Goorman. “Our programs and high school players deserve more love and respect. That’s why we have chosen to host a weekly show featuring the Big Reds. There is not a better mouthpiece to represent Muskegon County football than the Big Reds and we want to spread the word all across the world via a live weekly podcast.”

Fans will now have a live, insiders look at the Big Reds with head coach Shane Fairfield, his coaching staff and his players as they are interviewed by hosts Bob Eacker, Sports Cast’s John Mackay and Goorman.

Eacker is familiar voice for the Big Reds faithful, as he has been, and still is, the main radio commentator on 100.1 FM WVIB for every Muskegon game.

Fans are able to attend the show each week and enjoy food, drinks, and a night of Big Reds football talk. Teddy Spaghetti will be dishing out classic tailgate food with $7 hamburger baskets, $5 hotdog baskets, and $7 baskets of his world famous toasted ravioli.

Bella Maria’s will also have drink options available for all ages.

For those unable to attend in person, the show will be simulcasted live on LocalSportsJournal.com each week as well.

Join us and stay up-to-date on Muskegon football as Coach Fairfield and company begin their title defense and pursue consecutive state titles for the first time in school history.
