WEST SHORE vs. EDGEWOOD BASKETBALL ACTION
BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – The Friday Night Locker Room, known primarily for covering high school sports in central Florida, branched out this week by broadcasting a pair of middle school basketball games, thanks to the proliferation of the digital world.
Orville Susong, Steve Wilson and Alan Zlotorzynski provided play-by-play coverage as the West Shore Wildcats traveled to Edgewood Jr./Sr. High to take on the Indians in a boys and girls doubleheader.
The Friday Night Locker Room broadcast crew selected a Player of the Game from each team, both girls and boys games.
Sitting in with FNLR team was Florida Tech head basketball coach Billy Mims who provided commentary and insight to the action.
Wilson praised the efforts of Space Coast Daily in making this happen.
Broadcasting a middle school basketball game would not have been possible just a few short years ago.
“The partnership we are enjoying with Space Coast Daily has taken Friday Night Locker Room to another level,” said Wilson.
“We are able to reach more listeners and cover more youth sports than ever before. And that has always been our goal, to promote youth sports in central Florida.”
With the advent of technology, in particular, online streaming, FNLR is ready to move into the next phase of their broadcasting.
“To be able to promote youth sports at this level will be special, making this one of the more exciting events we have ever done in our 17-year history,” said Susong.
“We are used to dealing with high school students and now we’ll be able to turn our focus to include seventh and eighth graders, as well. That’s going to be pretty neat.”
