Welcome back to Friday Football Extra. It's time to look ahead to tomorrow's Division Four state championship contest between Salem and Park-View Sterling.
[ss=Park View/Salem]


Both the Spartans and the Patriots are undefeated and are familiar with the pressures of a state championship game.

((
Salem reached the finals by handily beating Martinsville 31 to nothing last Saturday.
All week the Spartans have been preparing for Park View's single wing.
Coach Willis White says that offense isn't much different from what Amherst or Pulaski County run.
But he says it's the talent that the Patriots have, that makes the difference.
(-----SOT------)

[4:14:20]
[in Q=it's not]

((WILLIS WHITE/SALEM HEAD COACH: IT'S NOT ANY PARTICULAR PERSON. IT'S JUST SOME OF THE THINGS THEY DO OUT OF IT, LIKE THEY RUN A LOT OF POWER, THEY GET A LOT OF BLOCKERS OUT IN FRONT AND HAVE SOME FAST GUYS. OUR CHORES GOING TO BE TO TRY TO BREAK THAT UP.))
[RUNS=:]
[OUT Q=break that up]


This will be a defensive task for the Spartans as Park View has scored 553 points and allowed only 82. The Patriots poorest offensive showing this season was 25 points.
The Salem defense has shutout seven of their 13 opponents this season. Offensively the Spartans have scored 533 points on their opponents.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT]
[IN Q=4:14:52 offensively]

((OFFENSIVELY I THINK WE MATCH UP WELL AND SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE A GOOD GAME ALL THE WAY AROUND. WHEN YOU GET THIS FAR IT GENERALLY COMES DOWN TO TURNOVERS AND MISTAKES.))
[RUNS=]
[OUT Q=and mistakes]


The Park View has invaded Southwest Virginia before, in 1980 future Notre Dame star Allen Pinkett led the Patriots in a tight contest with Giles in Pearisburg.
But the Spartans came back to edge Park View 33-32 in the Double-A State Title game.
The Patriots marched on Campbell County in 1988 to take on Brookville.
Salem Coach Willis White was there to see the Bees crumble under the weight of the Park View offense as the Patriots won the '88 Division Four State Title 51-to-7.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT]
[IN Q=4:15:39 they beat]

((THEY BEAT BROOKVILLE REALLY HANDILY BUT THAT WAS A LONG TIME AGO WITH A DIFFERENT COACH AND DIFFERENT PLAYERS. SO WE JUST TAKE THEM AS THEY ARE AND DO THE BEST WE CAN AND I'M SURE THEY WILL DO THE SAME.))
[RUNS=]
[OUT Q=do the same]


And incase you didn't know the coach of that '88 championship Park View team was Ed Scott who later went on to coach and retire from Roanoke's Patrick Henry High School.

A victory over Park View tomorrow would be Salem's 28th consecutive win and the Spartan's second straight state title.
In fact Salem is playing for its third title on four years.
Denise Allen reports, it's the team on the sidelines that has made the Spartans successful on the field.

((
After years of getting close, but not getting the prize, the Spartans finally brought home the trophy in 1996.
The 20-to-12 win over Sherando was the first state championship for Willis White and his staff.

[IN Q=the misnomer]

((WILLIS WHITE/SALEM HEAD COACH: THE MISNOMER ABOUT CHAMPIONSHIPS IS THAT YOU WIN THEM. YOU'RE REALLY SURVIVORS.))
[RUNS=]
[OUT Q=REALLY SURVIVORS]


The main reason Salem has survived to play in the title game three out of the last four seasons is the coaching staff.
Most of the staff has been together for more than a decade.
Coach White says that's because the City of Salem treats them right, each coach is responsible for a part of the program and the coaches are compatible.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 4:22:20]
[IN Q=we're extremely]

((BILLY MILES/17 YEAR ASSIST. SALEM COACH: WE'RE EXTREMELY TIGHT AS A GROUP. WE UNDERSTAND EACHOTHER. ALL OF OUR COACHES HAVE A SPECIFIC JOB AND ALL DO IT TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY.))
[RUNS=]
[OUT Q=THEIR ABILITY]
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 4:17:44]
[IN Q=THE WORSE]

((WHITE: THE WORSE THING A SCHOOL SYSTEM CAN DO IS GET IN THE BUSINESS OF MUSICAL COACHES. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A GREAT COACH BUT IF YOU'VE GOT GOOD PEOPLE WHO CARE ABOUT THE YOUNGSTERS AND THEY'RE PUTTING THE KIDS FIRST THEN I THINK YOU BETTER KEEP THEM.))
[RUNS=]
[OUT Q=KEEP THEM]


And that's what Salem has done. Steve Oliver has worked with Coach White for 18 years.
And Billy Miles has been an assistant at Salem for 17 seasons.
Both say that consistency has trickled down to the players.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 4:21:04]
[IN Q= they mirror]

((STEVE OLIVER/18 YEAR SALEM ASSIST. COACH: THEY MIRROR WHAT THEY SEE FROM US AND WE'VE ALWAYS WORKED TOGETHER THEY SEE US AS A UNIT AND THAT MAKES OUR TEAM SUCH A UNIT.))
[RUNS=]
[OUT Q=A UNIT]


Oliver says the staff has always worked toward a common goal and there is no jealousy between the coaches.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 4:23:55]
[IN Q=only when]

((MILES: ONLY WHEN SOMEONE GETS THE BIGGEST STEAK. THAT'S WHEN THERE'S JEALOUSY OF EACHOTHER. NO REALLY WE GET ALONG REALLY WELL TOGETHER.))
[RUNS=]
[OUT Q=TOGETHER]


The Spartans hope they'll be fighting over the biggest steak at a celebratory dinner after Saturday's state championship game in Harrisonburg.

((It's difficult to put a price tag on just how valuable Josh Spence has become to his community, to his school and to his teammates. ((WIN BEALE:)) Spence has set at least five major Floyd County football records. Heading into the state championship game he has two thousand 279 yards and 29 touchdowns. Spence accounted for 24 of Floyd's 35 points against Honaker in a state semifinal. ((:)) ((:)) ((:)) ((:))
Spence will add a third batch of Friday Football Extra hardware at the awards banquet. As Spence went through his final high school practices at Virginia Tech, his next stop, his rather generous friends at WDBJ were just the beginning of a long list of things he will miss about Floyd County High School. ((:))

Spence will probably run the ball out of the backfield for the final time Saturday, he is a projected linebacker at Tech. Steve Mason, Friday Football Extra.))

Folks around this part of the state have been talking all year about Salem being one of the most dominating teams ever. If the Spartans can win tomorrow they will become the first school in the history of Friday Football Extra to win back to back state titles in an unbeaten fashion with 28 straight wins. But when it comes to dominating individual performances in a state title game, the winner hands down in my book isn't a football player but a basketball player.
[GRAPHIC=IVERSON]

Allen Iverson, the NBA's all-everything guard with the Philadelphia 76ers was a quarterback and defensive back for Bethel high school. In the 1992 Division Five championship game he led the Bears against Bo Henson's E.C. Glass Hilltoppers at City Stadium. He was nothing short of amazing that day. So as a special Friday Football Extra treat, tonight we flash back to that windy December afternoon in '92 when the kid known for his cross-over dribble crossed-up E.C. Glass.

And if you look at the players who have made it through the ranks and played for Cave Spring high school you're likely to find hundreds of former players who credit an old grizzly rec coach for giving them the proper foundation.

Current Cave Spring high school coach Ben Foutz was among those paying tribute to Bogel.
