It’s looking like Covina
at vs. West Covina (at District Field) on Aug. 24 stands a good chance to be televised by FSN, according to a blog post by L.A. Times preps maven Eric Sondheimer.
The Colts and Bulldogs played two thrillers in 2010 and ’11, with each team getting a win. Both teams have some rebuilding to do this season, especially Covina under new coach Joe Brown.
Aram’s take: The suggestion in Sondheimer’s post was that the Southern Section was urging FSN to be more diversified this season in choosing what games it covers EARLY this season. At least that’s how I interpreted it. Seems like it would be easy for FSN to fall in love with the 10-15 “name teams” in SoCal while putting together its broadcast plans. So it would be good for WestCo and Covina to get some exposure and very exciting for the players involved … if this happens.
