Every game will be preceded by the King’s Restaurant Pre-Game Show, hosted by Bryan Hanks and Jon Dawson of Neuse News. The duo will have interviews with every coach in Lenoir County and preview that night’s games while taking a look at the preceding week’s games.
Hanks is the play-by-play announcer for the Davis Wholesale Tire Game of the Week, while retired South Lenoir coaching legend Jimmy Smith, a member of the Kinston-Lenoir County Sports Hall of Fame, will provide color analysis for all the games.
“I am honored to work alongside Coach Smith again this season,” Hanks said. “We are both excited about these games and are ready to get behind the microphone beginning Friday night.”
The Davis Wholesale Tire Game of the Week will feature updates from games all over the area from Neuse News correspondents Junious Smith III, Graham Hill, Keith Spence, Scott Cole and William “Bud” Hardy. It will also debut Jason Bryant of WRNS as the sideline reporter for all games.
