Free time in the summer leads to some student-athletes grabbing their fishing poles. We decided to head out with the cameras and start a new segment called Fishing Frenzy. The first ever episode features Auburn High School senior football players Sydney Landers and Jake Roth.
The East All Stars fell into an early 13-0 hole, highlighted by Cameron Gay's 85 yard touchdown return on the opening kickoff of the game, but once the East squad found their footing on both sides of the football, the Springfield stars shined bright at Quincy University.
There's always the normal highlight video...and then there's the sights and sounds. We take you on the sidelines and behind the scenes of this year's I-72 Do Or Die Bowl between the East and the West.
The East squad has been busting it all week so we wanted to reward a couple of the guys with some wings after practice on Thursday. You know how it goes with this group, though. Everything turns into a competition and so we had to determine who the East Side Wing King was.
Thanks to Chris Duerr at KHQA, we were able to put together a hype piece for Friday night's Do Or Die Bowl with practice footage from the West Side all stars (Quincy Area) and the East Side all stars (Springfield Area).
Glenwood produced a couple speedsters last season in Kam Corner and Jabores Smith. They've been talking all week about who was faster, so told them to put up or shut up so we could find out who's the fastest of the fast.
