ROOT Sports will do a live telecast of the Central Catholic-Gateway game on Fri., Oct. 14, ROOT Sports play-by-play man Rob King revealed this afternoon on the Kevin Gorman High School Football Show on TribLIVE Radio.
Central is ranked No. 1 in Class AAAA in the WPIAL and state and No. 19 nationally by USA Today but, as noted in my column this past Saturday, doesn’t have a home field. Interestingly, one of Central’s home games this season was played before a national television audience at Gateway. The Vikings defeated Archbishop Wood on the opening weekend in the Gateway Kickoff Classic.
ROOT Sports will televise the McKeesport at Penn-Trafford game at 7:30 p.m. Friday. The game will be previewed by the High School Edition presented by Trib Total Media, which first airs at 7 p.m. Thursday.
