The Holy Spirit Spartans will have a new head football coach in 2015. Listen to our conversation with the former Spirit graduate about his plans for the program and if the Spartans can reach their 4th consecutive state championship game.

We also preview the upcoming Holy Spirit boys basketball season, break down their win on opening night, and explain why dodgeball was worked into a recent Spartans' practice.

And 97.3 ESPN-FM and Townsquare Media, with the help of Tuckahoe Turf Farms, proudly announced the winner of the "Home Field Advantage" contest earlier this week. We spoke with the head coach of the winning high school football team, and found out what winning a brand new turf athletic field means for the program.
