Big Football Weekend in Ocean City, NJ + Eagles prepare for season
It’s a big football weekend in Ocean City as the High School's Carey Stadium hosts the 2023 Battle at the Beach Football Classic. High Schools from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Florida will participate in this weekend's football showcase. This is the third year that Ocean City has hosted the event and it is a perfect backdrop to kick off the 2023 football season. There are 12 games on this weekend's schedule with consecutive games being played on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The marquee matchup of the weekend features IMG Academy (Florida) versus St. Joseph's Prep (Pennsylvania) Saturday night with a scheduled 7 pm kickoff to be televised on ESPN2.
The Locker Room with Billy Schweim will broadcast Live from 10 am to 12 pm from the field at Ocean City High School's Carey Stadium. Come out to watch some great high school football action with the guys from The Locker Room!
College Football's "Week Zero" kicks off this Saturday featuring the United States Navy Football team under new Head Coach Brian Newberry playing the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame in Dublin, Ireland (Kickoff at 230pm and you hear the game on 973 ESPN South Jersey). Plus another game I'm looking forward to see this weekend is San Jose State traveling to the Los Angeles Coliseum to play the Trojans of USC.
The Phillies welcome to Philadelphia the struggling St. Louis Cardinals to Citizens Bank as the Phillies currently occupy the top of wildcard standings in the National League. Christopher Sanchez gets the start Friday night followed by Zack Wheeler on Saturday Night and on Sunday afternoon we will see Aaron Nola on the mound. Bryce Harper has been hot in the month of August, hitting .333 with seven home runs and a .421 On-Base percentage. Let’s hope he continues to stay hot as we are just a week away from starting the final month of the regular season.
Finally, the Eagles wrapped up their preseason games on Thursday Night and now the organization will need to make some tough decisions to get the initial 53-man Roster this Tuesday with the regular season starting in two weeks.
On Saturday's The Locker Room with Billy Schweim, we invite you to join me, former Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver Dave Klemic, and my co-host Mike Carlin as we broadcast Live from Ocean City High School during Saturday’s Battle at the Beach Football Classic. Every Saturday during the Football season we talk with the Sports Book Consigliere Dave Sharapan live from Las Vegas with his tips on betting on this weekend's action. During our show, we will be joined by the Head Coach of St. Joe’s Prep High School Football team Tim Forken to talk about his Pennsylvania Football program and the big game against IMG Academy on Saturday night broadcast on ESPN2 at 7pm. Plus, we will talk with former NFL Defensive Coordinator Paul Guenther, who has worked as a Defensive Coordinator with the Raiders and Bengals and is now coaching with the Ocean City High School football team this year.
On Sunday’s show, The Locker Room Youth Movement is back in the studio with Producer Danny Ryan and "The Intern” Andrew Leeds talking Philadelphia Sports. Every Sunday during the baseball season we go “On the Mound” with former Phillies Pitcher Tommy Greene brought to you by the John R. Elliott Hero Campaign for Designated Drivers, Tommy reviews the Phillies week and previews Sunday’s Aaron Nola start.
All that and more this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim heard every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to Noon on 973 ESPN Radio South Jersey.
