BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Spring football in Brevard will culminate with nine games this week, including the Space Coast Vipers hosting the East River Falcons in the Erdman Automotive Spring Football Game of the Week on Friday evening.
The Friday Night Locker Room’s Orville Susong and Steve Wilson will call all of the action starting with the pregame show at 6:45 p.m. and kick off at 7 p.m. Live on Space Coast Daily TV.
Joining Wilson and Susong in the broadcast booth will be longtime versatile and experienced multimedia journalist Chris Bonanno.
When Viper Coach Matt Diesel looks across the field, he will see a familiar face to a lot of people on the Space Coast as the East River Falcon’s head coach Tony Piccalo returns to Brevard County for the first time since his departure two years ago.
Piccalo is a former Cocoa Tigers player and coach and was also the head coach of the Cocoa Beach Minutemen.
Piccalo, who is entering his third season at the helm of the Falcons, lost 26 seniors to graduation last year, including seven that signed college scholarships, and expects to count on a number of rising sophomores in the upcoming season.
“This game will be a good challenge for us and a great barometer for our team,” said Piccalo.
“Our coaching staff has done a great job of working this spring to put kids in the best spots to get on the field and contribute.”
Diesel enters his second season as head coach of the Vipers as Space Coast comes off of a winning season (6-4) for the first time in a couple of years.
The Vipers had one of the most balanced teams on the Space Coast in 2018, averaging 126 yards on the ground, and 121 yards through the air.
