Bally Sports Detroit to air 'Muth football game across the state

  The Frankenmuth varsity football team will be getting prime-time viewing this Friday night across the state of Michigan.

  Bally Sports Detroit Football Fridays is a new program launched in August covering high school football across the state. Bally Sports Detroit, formerly known as Fox Sports Detroit, will air the game on Channel 31 for Charter Spectrum cable subscribers.

  The 7-0 Eagle gridders will host fellow Tri-Valley Conference 8 school Essexville Garber (5-2) at 7pm. ‘Muth already has at least a share of the TVC 8 title and a win would give them their 10th straight league crown.

  While the game is the focal point, the student body, fans and community will also celebrate Homecoming. The live television broadcast will also show off the Eagles one-year-old artificial turf field.

  Bally Sports Detroit is broadcasting live high school football games each Friday night through the MHSAA regular season. Last Friday, Bally aired the game between Caledonia and host Rockford at the Carlson-Munger Stadium. Rockford won the thrilling game, the program that FHS alumnus and football standout Ralph Munger coached until last season.

  Broadcasters Johnny Kane, T.J. Lang, Devin Gardner, Craig Monroe and Rob Rubick will call the games which can be seen on BSDET, BSDET , the Bally Sports app and/or for the fall football season.

  In addition to broadcasting games, Bally Sports Detroit will bring an on-site fan fest concept to FHS as well as a wrapped coach bus, interactive football toss, and promotional tent with free giveaways for the fans. Another highlight is former Detroit Lion wide receiver Herman Moore will be on hand for autographs and photographs at FHS Friday night. Moore is an NFL All-Pro and founder and CEO of Team 84, LLC.

  "Bally Sports Detroit is where Michigan fans cheer on our local teams and nothing is more local than the tradition of high school football in Michigan. We are proud to be bringing a "Friday Night Lights” feel to high school football across the state,” Bally Sports Senior Vice President and General Manager Greg Hammaren said.
