The Battle for the Bell kicks off the season
Opening week is right around the corner for high school football. Our first broadcast will be the Battle for Bell with Concord at A.L. Brown.
Radio Free Cabarrus will broadcast audio only for the game. The game will be broadcast live on TV by Time Warner Cable. John Voncannon and Chris Hudson will call the action for RFC. They will broadcast Concord games all season long.
Our regular broadcasts (live audio with delayed video) will begin on Friday, Aug. 21, with two games.
Northwest Cabarrus visits Jay M. Robinson in a South Piedmont Conference game. The Bulldogs are rejoining the 3-A ranks after two season at 4-A. Perry Gabriel and Coach Soupy Campbell will call the action.
The Highway 49 Rivalry will be the other broadcast with Central Cabarrus visiting Mount Pleasant. It will be the first game since the Cabarrus County School Board approved naming the field. It is now Larry Honeycutt Field at Tiger Stadium. Mark Plemmons and Shaked Bar-Tal will call the action.
