North Georgia Football
What do offensive linemen and EMC Security have in common?
Answer: We protect what’s most important.
That’s right, when it comes to protection, we’re both experts at keeping the bad guys at bay. So, in the spirit of our commonality, we’ve partnered with 97.9 FM and AM-1330 WGTJ to sponsor play-by-play commentary of high school football games.
They kick off the coverage every Friday on a 1-hour weekly high school preview show “Game Plan” broadcast every Friday night from 6:05 to 7:00 PM, prior to the game of the week broadcast. Then they count down to the kickoff of the game of the week, “Friday night football in north Georgia”. The team of Joe Gailey, Ron Poole, Garry Glenn, and Mike Wofford will provide the play- by-play coverage of the games as they feature broadcasts of all of the public high schools in Hall County this season.
There are several great ways to hear the games on WGTJ: on the radio at 97.5 FM; online on any computer and mobile device through the new upgraded player on the “listen live” link on the home page of the station’s web site, wgtjradio.com; through the “tunein radio” app; on the Amazon echo smart speaker by saying “play 97.5 GLORY FM; and you can hear the games and watch the action with a LIVE video stream on our social media site on twitter, @teamglorysports. All of the games will be recorded and made available for playback any time on demand through the football archives page on the station’s web site.
After the game they will broadcast the most comprehensive high school football scoreboard in the area with “The Final Score”, a LIVE local scoreboard show with interviews with local coaches with recaps of the local games, 11 PM-12 midnight; and on Saturday mornings they will go in-depth with the local games on “The Saturday Morning Sports Show”. Mike Wofford and Ron Poole will recap all of the local games and talk with the coaches LIVE from the TEAM GLORY SPORTS center.
Plus, this season, the show will be broadcast LIVE on social media on twitter live, @teamglorysports.
