Heritage, Salem Preview State Semifinal Clash
High School State Semifinal Saturday is here, and we've got a couple of Group Double-A games matching area teams.
Both games are Saturday at one. Tunstall plays at unbeaten Brookville, while Heritage hits the road to unbeaten Salem. Heritage coach Brad Bradley is a Salem grad, he and Spartans' coach Steve Magenbauer played ball together in Salem, now they'll match coaching wits.
Brad Bradley, HERITAGE HEAD COACH, said "I think on Saturday it really has nothing to do with either one of the head coaches, it has something to do with each one of these kids on their team and on our team that have worked so hard to get to this point. And I'm so proud of our kids, I'm so excited for them to be able to get a chance to play in this type of football game and in this type of atmosphere. You know football is about memories. Coach White used to tell us all the time it's about memories. This is a memory they're never going to forget."
Stephen Magenbauer, SALEM HEAD COACH, said "You know we grew up together through a lot of football and have been friends for a long time. So I think it's sort of neat that we both had to have successful years and successful teams for us to meet up at this point. So you know it'll be fun come Saturday."
