WFMJ team sets coverage

YOUNGSTOWN -- The 10th season of WFMJ Channel 21's "Inside High School Football" will air Sundays at 11:30 a.m. through the end of the season.
Channel 21's sports reporters Dana Balash, Mike Case and Mike Ackelson host the show, which is being co-sponsored this year by The Vindicator, Arby's and Muscle Connection.
During each program, Balash, Case and Ackelson review, analyze and get comments from all of the key participants from the previous week.
Because of the Summer Olympics, the Aug. 29 "Inside High School Football" show will air at 9:30 a.m.
The "Arby's Overtime Report" will return during the 11 p.m. newscasts on Fridays. Last year, the 21 Sports team covered 248 games for the "Arby's Overtime Report." Each week, 12 games will be covered.
