You can listen to the game live on WGSO 990 AM and at www.wgso.com with Ken Trahan and Mark Williams.

Hard-hitting senior safeties D’Quan Charles and Brock Davis are top defenders for the Eagles.
Salmen (5-1) has won four straight games following a thrilling 34-33 non-district win over Franklinton, whom the Spartans will play again in district play in a couple of weeks.
Senior quarterback LJ Leonard is a three-year Salmen starter while junior Aaron Williams is coming off of a big game in the win over Franklinton. He rushed 17 times for 186 yards and two touchdowns. Senior Brayden Gabel had seven catches for 126 yards and two scores against the Demons. Senior Garrett Crawford is a good defensive lineman and also starts on offense while TCU commit Eddie Smith is an outstanding cornerback for the Spartans.
