BRIEF: Federal Way will play on Root Sports Sept. 19

The Federal Way Eagles football team will get a little television exposure on Sept. 19. The defending South Puget Sound League South Division champion Eagles will play in front of a regional-television audience against the Graham-Kapowsin Eagles. The game will be broadcast on Root Sports Northwest. The game, at Art Crate Stadium in Graham, will start at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19.

The Federal Way-Graham-Kapowsin game will be one of nine televised on Root Sports this year. The slate of games will be known as the Root Sports High School Football “Game of the Week” and will include teams from throughout the Seattle/Tacoma area. Games will air on mostly Thursdays at 7 p.m. and will be shown throughout Root Sports Northwest’s five state region. This is the second year Root Sports has televised high school games.

“We were very pleased with the response to our inaugural season of High School Game of the Week and are excited to continue the endeavor. This season promises to be exciting with a line-up that includes KingCo, SPSL, Seamount, Narrows, Cascade, Evergreen and Metro schools,” stated Mark Jorgensen, Root Sports Senior Vice President/General Manager.

Brad Adam will provide play-by-play and work with analyst Jason Stiles, who is a 1991 graduate of Decatur High School.

Adam has been with Root Sports since June 2000 and in his current role provides the sights and sounds before and after every Mariners game as the Host of Mariners Pregame and Mariners Postgame. Stiles joined the Root Sports team following a successful football career; he has worked as a Pac 12 and high school analyst, and will serve in the same capacity for Big Sky football this season.

Stiles played quarterback at Decatur before moving on to Western Washington University.
