2012 brings a new adventure to my broadcasting career. I’ll be going behind the mic, but this time for the web. Specifically football in West Des Moines. Valley Stadium will be my home on Friday nights this fall.
I’ll be doing home games on the internet for the West Des Moines Dowling Catholic Maroons and hold on to your hats, the West Des Moines Valley Tigers.
Romelle Slaughter and I will be together each Friday, but our dancing partners will rotate. Some nights it will be the KWKY crew of Dave and Brian with their old pal Mark Amadeo returning to the radio. We will split some time in the pregame, halftime and post game and Mark and I may trade spots once a game for a few plays.
My analyst is still being determined and it should be fun to have a new adventure each week.
I will likely only post game preview and reviews of the games I’m doing play-by-play.
Here are the games you can expect coverage on this blog:
August 24 – Southeast Polk at Dowling Catholic
August 31 – Dowling Catholic at Valley
September 7 – Ankeny at Dowling Catholic
September 14 – Urbandale @ Dowling Catholic
September 21 – Indianola @ Valley
September 28 – Urbandale at Valley
October 5 – Ottumwa at Dowling Catholic
October 12 – Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson at Valley
October 19 – Sioux City East at Valley

I also do some radio work for KWKY Radio covering the West Des Moines Dowling Catholic High School Maroons football team. This tab is full of links to post about the team and some interviews.
I’ll be doing play-by-play on 1150 KWKY-AM radio. Here’s some information on the broadcasts.
The game’s audio will stream on the internet or you can start at http://www.KWKY.com for the links. We’ll also have updates on Twitter at Twitter.com/KWKYSports.
