Nobody does Thanksgiving like “The Coach” George DeMaio.
I’ve been covering high school football Thanksgiving games since 1999 and I can’t think of a year without Coach and Crew — including Steve Kirck, Nick Aprea, The Day’s Ned Griffen and late Shore Line Sports Editor and former points keeper Hal Levy all on a conference call reporting scores and then working their calculators to see who’s in and who’s out of the state playoffs.
They’re also extremely entertaining, especially if you get an upset or two.
Coach will be broadcasting the Elm City Bowl between Wilbur Cross (6-4) and Hillhouse (10-0) on Thanksgiving Morning.
On WEDNESDAY, however, he will be in the studio taking phone calls from his network of correspondents from all the consequential Friday night games, including Masuk-Newtown and Cheshire-Southington. So if you can’t get out to a game, tune in to get all the information.
