Listen Now! Top HS football matchups, Halloween highlight two state sports podcasts
It’s hard to believe, but the high school football season is winding down.
We’re looking at Week 9 this upcoming Friday.
Meanwhile, Halloween is just a weekend away.
Where has the time gone?
I couldn’t decide if I wanted to talk about football or Halloween on the weekly podcast, so I decided to do both!
That’s right, this week you get two episodes of “The *State* of Florida Sports Podcast,” powered by the USA TODAY Network.
In one episode, we have four of our network reporters breaking down two big games coming this Friday: Jacksonville Bolles at Gainesville-Buchholz and Port Orange-Spruce Creek at Cocoa.
For the first game, I’ll be joined by the Florida Times Union’s Clayton Freeman and the Gainesville Sun’s Ainslie Lee. For the second game we’ll welcome Chris Boyle of the Daytona Beach News-Journal and Brian McCallum of FLORIDA TODAY.
Bolles (6-0) is the top team in Class 4A while Buchholz (6-1) is a power in 7A.
Spruce Creek is also a 7A power (7-0) while Cocoa (5-1) resides in 4A, but has been slaying 8A teams all season. The Tigers’ lone loss was by one point to 8A power Venice, widely regarded as one of best teams in the state.
The other episode of the podcast will be dedicated to one of my favorite subjects — Halloween.
My house has been decorated since the middle of September.
To help me break down Halloween movies, candy, music and other subjects, I welcome Mark Moses, host of the Mark Moses radio show on 1560 The Fan. Mark’s sports show broadcasts out of Melbourne and he can also be heard at sportsradio1560.com.
He’s an expert on sports, but as you’ll find, he’s also very well-versed in movies and music.
What will we discuss?
Have you ever considered which creatures belong on the Monster Mount Rushmore?
What’s the most obscure horror film you’ve seen?
What candy do you associate with Halloween?
And what type of music do you listen to at this time of year? Michael Jackson or Ozzy Osbourne?
We have a little something for everyone this week.
If you’re a fan of high school football, Halloween, or both, then this is the podcast for you.
We can be downloaded wherever you listen to podcasts, or simply type in “The *State* of Florida Sports Podcast” into your favorite search engine and you’ll find several options to listen on, including Spotify. We also can be found on any of the 17 USA TODAY-Network Florida websites.
It’s just like listening to the radio, but on your phone.
If you like it, you can check out previous shows, which feature current and former professional athletes and coaches, as well as our stable of journalists who cover beats and write columns, all of whom have a tie to the Sunshine State.
If you don’t, one of our ghosts just might follow you home! Ha ha ha ha!!!
