Auburn and Kentlake to share the spotlight on Root Sports Game of the Week Oct. 11 | Prep football
Root Sports announced this week that the High School Football Game of the Week will return this fall for a second season.
And the Auburn versus Kentlake South Puget Sound League 4A North tilt will be shown at 7 p.m. Oct. 11.
The Game of the Week – sponsored by Papa Murphy's – schedule kicks off on Sept. 7 with a clash of titans, when 3A State Champion, Bellevue, takes on 4A State Champion, Skyline, at Husky Stadium.
After the Saturday opener, High School Football on Root Sports will move to its usual Thursday night schedule, showing nine regular season games along with WIAA District Playoffs and the 3A and 4A Championship games.
The games will be shown throughout Root Sports Northwest's five state regional coverage area. Each game will be aired live, with at least one replay.
"We were very pleased with the response to our inaugural season of High School Football Game of the Week and are excited to continue the endeavor," said Root Sports Senior Vice President and General Manager Mark Jorgerson. "This season promises to be exciting, with a line-up that includes KingCo, SPSL, Seamount, Narrows, Cascade, Evergreen and Metro schools."
Working with analyst Jason Stiles, Brad Adam is to provide play-by-play. Adam has been with Root Sport since June 2000. In his current role as the host of Mariners Pregame and Mariners Postgame, he provides the sights and sounds before and after every Mariners game. Stiles joined the Root Sports team following a successful football career; he has worked as a Pac-12 and high school analyst, and will serve in the same capacity for Big Sky Conference football this season.
