The broadcast team for CHS football is Josh Ward on play-by-play, Scott Osborne on color, with Victoria Eskola as the sideline reporter.  Ward, a former high school basketball coach, returns for his third year as the voice of the Wildcats.  Osborne, also in his second year as color commentator for Central, is an assistant basketball coach and teacher at Central.  Eskola, a teacher and coach at CHS, will be in her second year manning the sidelines on Wildcats broadcasts.
