Friday Night Showcase


101.1 ESPN Peoria and Clutch Sports Media are teaming up this fall to provide live play-by-play coverage for Central Illinois’ biggest high school football games. Every Friday night of the prep football season, ESPN will air “ESPN Peoria’s Friday Night Showcase: Powered by Clutch Sports”.

Starting on Friday August 27th, broadcasters Larry Larson and Joey Wright will do radio play-by-play for one of the area’s top games. Play-by-play for the showcase game will also be heard on both the ESPN Peoria and Clutch Sports websites.

In addition to play-by-play, Larson and Wright plan to host a weekly show every Wednesday night at 6 p.m. on 101.1  starting on August 25th. The two of them will be stationed in the town of that week’s showcase game talking to coaches and players and previewing the week’s matchup and more. Locations for each show are TBD.
