Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop congratulates these amazing scholar athletes of the week and invites them to the Rocket Fizz Store at 1916 Skibo Rd. to receive a FREE gift recognizing their achievement! www.rocketfizz.com After a five-month hiatus to regroup and reor- ganize, the DK Sports Page sports radio talk show has resumed on Monday nights from 6-8 p.m. It airs on WFNC 640 AM with hosts Trey Edge and Bill Boyette. "Fayetteville needs a local talk show based on local sports, from the high school level to the col- lege level to NFL ties,'' said Edge. In addition to hosting the show, he's the play-by-play voice for the DK Sports, Inc., game of the week in various sports. He's also the Friday night voice of Terry Sanford during football season. Also on the game broadcasts are Boyette, pro- viding color commentary and occasional appear- ances by Don Koonce, founder of DK Sports, Inc. When it comes to the DK Sports Page, Edge said the show will try to cover everything but will focus primarily on local sports. "We'll always have a high school segment each and every week,'' he said. When the show returned to air for the first time last week, high school guests included Terry Sanford baseball coach Sam Guy and Jack Britt softball coach Sebrina Wilson. Also interviewed were University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill football coach Mack Brown and Fayetteville Woodpeckers general manager David Lane. The initial version of the show, which debuted in the late summer of 2017, was heavy on inter- views with coaches. Edge said the goal this time around will be to try and talk with more players, both active ones and former players from the area who have moved on to the professional ranks. Boyette, Edge's cohost, is a veteran high school basketball coach who led his Fayetteville Academy Eagles to the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association 2-A championship last season. Edge said Boyette is an avid sports fan who obviously has a lot of expertise in basketball but is detail-oriented in all aspects of sports. "That's probably why he's successful as a coach too,'' Edge said. The show was strictly studio-based during its initial run, but Edge said that could change with the revived edition. "We may be look- ing to go out live,'' he said, "for example, to a Woodpeckers game. We may try to do some- thing where we get in front of people and do live broadcasting from there.'' To keep up with the show and to send sugges- tions for possible topics or guests, Edge said fans should follow the show on Twitter at @DKSportsPage.
