1ST & GOAL tonight at 6:40 pm, Linden visits South on!


Week 3 of the high school football season is upon us! The 1ST & GOAL broadcast team will air the Linden-McKinley Panthers at the South Bulldogs. It will be the first time the Bulldogs have been on 1ST & GOAL. The Panthers come in at 0-2 and the Bulldogs at 2-0. You can LISTEN LIVE here Cassinger and Stu Mason with pre-game action around 6:40 pm.

The Panthers have lost to Washington D.C. Kingsman Academy, 26-0 and Columbus Academy, 51-6. Their new head coach is Andrew Phillips.

The Bulldogs under South alum George Yates III, comes into the game with wins over Columbus East, 24-8 and Berne Union, 28-6.

Should be an exciting game between these two Columbus City League teams in a cross-division battle.

1ST & GOAL Week 2: Chillicothe, too deep, too talented for Mifflin Punchers in 56-14 loss

The Mifflin Punchers will want to forget about the game this past Friday night.

Legendary coach Ron Hinton brought his Chillcothe Cavaliers into town to take on the Punchers.

The Cavaliers led by quarterback Adrian Beverly game out and played smash mouth football after their defense gave up a 79 yard touchdown run by Punchers quarterback Tawon Cannon.

The Cavaliers went onto score on back to back drives before running back Larron Garland took a 70 yard run to the house.

After that things went south for the Punchers as they allowed 34 straight points to the Cavaliers! With those 34 points Nick Coats and J’Quan Harris added 5 touchdowns combined to finish the Punchers off with a 56-14.
The Punchers will have to get over that fast and get ready for the highly ranked Harvest Prep Warriors as they travel this Friday September 7 2018 in what should be a great match up for Punchers to bounce back after two blow out losses.

NFL 2018 Week 1 Preview for Kickoff Weekend



The NFL returns this week and it’s time to get back to football. Kickoff Weekend signals the start of a 256-game journey, one that promises hope for each of the league’s 32 teams as they set their eyes on Super Bowl LIII, which will be played on Sunday, February 3, 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.

One thing is certain: the 2018 season will be filled with memorable moments, as young players emerge onto the scene, familiar faces continue their climb up the record books and teams vie to make their mark in the postseason.

The 99th season of NFL play kicks off on Thursday night (NBC, 8:20 PM ET) as the Super Bowl champion PHILADELPHIA EAGLES host the ATLANTA FALCONS at Lincoln Financial Field in a battle of the NFC’s past two Super Bowl representatives. The Eagles, who finished last in the NFC East with a 7-9 record in 2016, became the second team since 2003 to go from “worst-to-first” en route to a Super Bowl victory, joining the 2009 New Orleans Saints.

Every team enters the 2018 season with hope and a trip to Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII in mind. Below are a few reasons why.

  • THE FIELD IS OPEN: Five of the eight divisions in 2017 were won by a team that finished in third or fourth place in the division the previous season – Jacksonville (AFC South), the Los Angeles Rams (NFC West), Minnesota (NFC North), New Orleans (NFC South) and Philadelphia (NFC East).

    Since the 12-team playoff format was adopted in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before. Eight teams that missed the postseason in 2016 – Buffalo (9-7), Carolina (11-5), Jacksonville (10-6), Los Angeles Rams (11-5), Minnesota (13-3), New Orleans (11-5), Philadelphia (13-3) and Tennessee (9-7) – accomplished the feat in 2017, tied with the 2003 season for the most such teams since 1990.

  • WILL THE EAGLES REPEAT AS SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS? Fresh off their first Super Bowl in franchise history, the Eagles begin their quest to repeat as champions as the race to Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium for Super Bowl LIII kicks off. Only eight teams have repeated as champions since the first Super Bowl in 1967, with the 2004 Patriots (Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX) being the last team to accomplish the feat.
  • RECORDS WITHIN REACH: New Orleans quarterback DREW BREES (70,445) needs 1,496 passing yards to surpass PEYTON MANNING (71,940) as the NFL’s all-time leading passer. Brees (6,222) can also surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer BRETT FAVRE (6,300) for the most completions in NFL history…New England quarterback TOM BRADY (559) needs 21 touchdown passes to surpass Manning (579) for the most in NFL history (including the postseason). Brady (488) and Brees (488) can join Manning (539) and Favre (508) as the only players in league annals to reach 500 career regular-season touchdown passes…Miami running back FRANK GORE (14,026) can become the fourth player in NFL history to reach 15,000 career rushing yards, joining Pro Football Hall of Famers EMMITT SMITH (18,355), WALTER PAYTON (16,726) and BARRY SANDERS (15,269)…Arizona wide receiver LARRY FITZGERALD (1,234) needs 92 receptions to pass TONY GONZALEZ (1,325) for second place on the NFL’s all-time receptions list. Fitzgerald (15,545) needs 390 receiving yards to pass Pro Football Hall of Famer TERRELL OWENS (15,934) for the second-most receiving yards in league history…Carolina defensive end JULIUS PEPPERS (154.5) can surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer KEVIN GREENE (160) for the third-most sacks in league history since the sack became an official statistic in 1982…Indianapolis kicker ADAM VINATIERI (2,487) needs 58 points to surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer MORTEN ANDERSEN (2,544) for the most in NFL history.
  • FAMILIAR FACES IN NEW PLACES: Seven teams enter the 2018 season with a new head coach – STEVE WILKS in Arizona, MATT NAGY in Chicago, MATT PATRICIA in Detroit, FRANK REICH in Indianapolis, PAT SHURMUR with the New York Giants, JON GRUDEN in Oakland and MIKE VRABEL in Tennessee.

Several notable players were also on the move during the offseason, including quarterbacks KIRK COUSINS (Minnesota), CASE KEENUM (Denver), ALEX SMITH (Washington) and TYROD TAYLOR (Cleveland); running backs LE GARRETTE BLOUNT (Detroit), CARLOS HYDE (Cleveland) and DION LEWIS (Tennessee); wide receivers BRANDIN COOKS (Los Angeles Rams), MICHAEL CRABTREE (Baltimore), JARVIS LANDRY (Cleveland) and JORDY NELSON (Oakland); tight end JIMMY GRAHAM (Green Bay); guard ANDREW NORWELL (Jacksonville); tackle NATE SOLDER (New York Giants); defensive end ROBERT QUINN (Miami); defensive tackles DONTARI POE (Carolina), SHELDON RICHARDSON (Minnesota), NDAMUKONG SUH (Los Angeles Rams) and MUHAMMAD WILKERSON (Green Bay); linebacker KHALIL MACK(Chicago); cornerbacks MALCOLM BUTLER (Tennessee), MARCUS PETERS (Los Angeles Rams), RICHARD SHERMAN (San Francisco) and AQIB TALIB (Los Angeles Rams); and safety TYRANN MATHIEU (Houston).

  • YOUNG STARS TAKE THE STAGE: Last season, four rookies – Arizona’s BUDDA BAKER, Kansas City’s KAREEM HUNT and New Orleans’ ALVIN KAMARA and MARSHON LATTIMORE – earned Pro Bowl honors in their first season. Who could accomplish the feat in 2018?

    Five quarterbacks -  BAKER MAYFIELD (No. 1 overall, Cleveland), SAM DARNOLD (No. 3, New York Jets), JOSH ALLEN (No. 7, Buffalo), JOSH ROSEN (No. 10, Arizona) and LAMAR JACKSON (No. 32, Baltimore) – were selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, marking the third time that at least five quarterbacks have been selected in the Draft’s opening round since the inception of the common draft in 1967. At least one rookie quarterback has started Week 1 in 10 consecutive seasons, the longest streak in the NFL since at least 1950.

    In each of the past two seasons, a rookie running back has led the NFL in rushing yards – Dallas’ EZEKIEL ELLIOTT (1,631) in 2016 and Hunt (1,327) in 2017. Three running backs – SAQUON BARKLEY (No. 2 overall, New York Giants), RASHAAD PENNY (No. 27, Seattle) and SONY MICHEL (No. 31, New England) – were selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

NFL Week 1 2018 Thursday Night Football opener: Falcons visit World Champion Eagles






September 6, 2018

The 2018 season kicks off on Thursday, September 6 (8:20 PM ET, NBC) as the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles host the Atlanta Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field in a rematch of the 2017 NFC Divisional Playoffs, which the Eagles won 15-10. The Falcons and Eagles meet for the 31st time in the regular season, with Philadelphia holding a 16-13-1 series advantage. The Eagles, who won their first Super Bowl with a 41-33 victory over New England in Super Bowl LII, have won their past two home openers played on Kickoff Weekend and six of their past seven overall in Week 1. Philadelphia ranked third in the NFL averaging 28.6 points per game last season and were the only team to have three players with at least eight touchdown catches each – wide receivers ALSHON JEFFERY (nine) and NELSON AGHOLOR (eight) and tight end ZACH ERTZ (eight).

On the path to Super Bowl LII, the Eagles finished the regular season with a 13-3 record and earned the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Philadelphia won the NFC East a season after finishing in last place with a 7-9 record in 2016, joining the JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (AFC South) as teams to complete a “worst-to-first” turnaround in 2017. At least one team has won its division the season after finishing in or tied for last place in 14 of the past 15 seasons.

Atlanta advanced to the postseason for the second consecutive season in 2017 and has won three of their past four season openers. Falcons quarterback MATT RYAN passed for 4,095 yards last season, his franchise-record seventh consecutive season with at least 4,000 passing yards, and tied for the second-longest streak in NFL history. Linebacker DEION JONES led Atlanta’s defense with 138 tackles, which tied for fourth in the NFL, and safety KEANU NEAL led all NFC safeties with 113 tackles in 2017.
