WOI Channel 5 News Des Moines chose tonight’s Van Meter vs PC game to be the Blitz Game of the Week. PC students and fans gathered on the football field before 6:00 a.m. for a live newscast and pep rally in preparation for the home game tonight.
The broadcast had several cut-ins to the live show on WOI this morning from our very own PC football stadium. Interviews with players, coaches, and students, a football-throwing competition between players and show hosts, and a coach’s dance with PC’s Shine Dance Team were featured on TV.
Having over 100 students and fans at the pep rally showed “a passion for our school and our school sports programs,” according to athletic director Dan Branderhorst.
WOI highlights one game each week to showcase football programs that have been successful in recent years.
Kickoff for the game tonight against the Bulldogs is set for 7:00 p.m.
