Week 14 CrunchTIME Radio November 27, 2021

Welcome to CrunchTIME Radio (WPLY AM/FM), week 14 of Crunch and week 13 of the high school football season. On today’s show our US Cellular-Crunch Hotline guest is Jamar Lovelace, William Fleming Head Coach. Coach Lovelace talks about his Colonels improvements and changing the culture for the better. Our Haley Toyota ‘Legends of the Game’ this week is former VT Legendary Head Coach Frank Beamer. 
Coach Beamer started his coaching career at Radford High School and later was head coach at Murray State in college.

Also in the show are our normal weekly features – Jimmy Whitaker’s ‘Jimmy Thang‘ segment, the “5 things you need to know about High School Football this week,” and the Crunch Great 8 Poll. Check it out.

Below is this week’s November 27, 2021 CrunchTIME Radio show.

CrunchTIME Radio show Hour 1:

CrunchTIME Radio show Hour 2:

CrunchTIME is a live, local, high school sports radio show on Fox Sports on WPLY 610 AM or 101.1 FM. (although we do dabble in some college) Each Saturday morning at 10am to 11am we air our talk radio show around high school football in the fall/winter and basketball and wrestling in the winter/early spring. It runs from the second week of August through the State Championships in the second week of December for football. Basketball and Wrestling go until the end of March, with the basketball state finals.

If you miss the Crunch, or want to hear it again, log in here each week and listen to Carl, Jimmy, and Coach Randy recap our games of the week, the surprise outcomes, area scores, and commentary about everything between the lines on the field. We interview the players, the coaches, band members, cheerleaders, fans…. anyone is fair game for CrunchTIME. Each week we have an excerpt of an interview from a past legendary high school coach, a current high school coach or a great high school player from year’s past. In the fourth quarter of the hour long show, we run a segment called the ‘Jimmy Thang’ where our on air partner calls out a cool story that he heard at one of the games. We have a ‘Great 8’ debate (poll) highlighting our area’s top eight teams this week, as we see it and why. We’ll tell you “Five things you need to know about Virginia High School Football” this week. And we’ll tease next week’s best games.  Also, new this year, we will highlight a US Cellular ‘play of the day.’ It could be a player, a coach, cheerleader, marching band member, or someone in the student body section. You may here snippets of local bands, cheerleaders calling our CrunchTIME or listeners chiming in, putting their two cents worth in.

The show can also be listened to as a podcast on PodBean. If you want to see us make the show (how the sausage is made) each week, you can also find us on Facebook live.

  • Guys : I am a 1970 PH grad who played for Merrill Gainer his first year at PH . I helped with the effort to name the PH field for Gainer several years ago . I am a big fan of Crunch Time and particularly love your focus on regional coaching legacies .
    I got a call out of the blue recently from George Erps , a former coach with Gainer and school administrator at Beaver High in Bluefield . George wrote a book about the integration at Beaver High and just completed a book about coach Gainer. He called me about ideas to get the word out about his book in Roanoke . I immediately thought of Crunch Time and it’s magnificent features on legacy coaches . Perhaps you might have some interest in having George on your show sometime to talk about his book and his stories about Gainer . George lives in Princeton and can be reached at (304) 425-5942. I live in Roanoke and would be happy to help facilitate your contact with George if that would be helpful . My cell – 540 353-7606.
    Keep up the great work !
    Bill Wallace

  • Hey Bill. Hope you’re well. We did an interview with Coach Erps. Hope his book is doing well.
