BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Space Coast Daily’s Zach Clark and I are hosting the College Gridiron Report, a weekly show that will appear on Space Coast Daily TV every Thursday.
We will be talking primarily about the Florida schools, looking back at the previous weekend and looking ahead to the upcoming weekend matchups. We will also discuss games of interest from around the country.
We offer a unique perspective in that neither of us has a favorite team from the state of Florida – we pull for all the Florida teams!
This year is shaping up to be another exciting college football season, and Zach and I will be right in the middle of it with the College Gridiron Report!
