Week. Doc Watson, WGLO Afternoon jock, and Bruce Cowdrey, Peoria’s
popular and successful pro football coach, are teaming up to provide
play-by-play coverage of Central Illinois’ top high school football
games. Each week we will also feature live reports from two other games
in the area from our team of reporters including Tom Meredith, Matt Hall, and
Robert Hahn. Inside the studio, Jason Glick will be running the board
with assistance from Jay Williams. Jason also helps keep Bruce and Doc
updated on all the scores from other high school match ups. Check in with
95.5 GLO early in the week to find out where the Red Zone will take them each
