WEIS radio's “The End Zone Show”, which featured segments with current and former area high school football players and coaches, along with a roundtable of college football picks from WEIS radio sports commentator Nolen Sanford, The Post’s Scott Wright and The Herald’s Shannon Fagan, will once again hit the WEIS radio waves (100.5 FM and 990 AM). This season’s show includes those same segments with some added twists.
According to station manager Jerry Baker, 3 Style Pizza restaurant on Cedar Bluff Road next to Goodies in the Cherokee Plaza, will serve as the site host for the show. Duryea and Sanford will begin the show featuring area school impact players as chosen by their respective head coaches.
The second quarter segment of the show, “Blast from the Past”, provides former players and coaches the opportunity to share their memories of classic area high school games.
A third quarter open portion of the show will be filled with updated rankings, news on recruits and more.
The show closes with Southeastern Conference, Jacksonville State and Shorter College football picks from an “expert” panel against a roundtable of select “ex-experts.”
The “ex-experts” are former coaches and players who will deliver their picks against Sanford, Wright and Fagan.
Prior to “The End Zone” program kickoff at 3 Style Pizza, WEIS preseason football coverage begins on Aug. 23 with a 2-hour game day beginning at 5:30 p.m. from the Cedar Bluff jamboree.
Speaking of the Cedar Bluff jamboree, here’s the schedule.

Twenty teams participated last Saturday at the annual Sand Rock Golf Tournament at the Cherokee County Country Club. The event raised money for the Lady Wildcat softball team.
The foursome of Jake Minnix, Lee Morgan, Kim Nichols and Mark Jason Green had the best score of the day when then they eagled hole nos. 6, 8, 10, 14 and 16. At 21-under par, the foursome picked up their second win in as many weeks.
Last weekend at Callier Springs Country Club, the group carded a two-day total of 107 (55, 52) to capture the Legends of Callier title.
Second place in the Sand Rock event went to Bill Trammell, Terry Adams, Pete Trammell and Eddie Robertson. They finished at 17-under par.
