"Coach" T.D. Smith
Cover IV Podcast Host
Prior to the regular season, the Cover IV Podcast Football Analysts will analyze the teams in their coverage area. The areas will be North, Southern Tier, East and West.
Each week “Coach” Smith and Roger Neel will analyze “Games of the Week”. Only games where both teams are from Section IV, will be considered for analysis. All classifications will be considered.
"The Second Season" Section IV Playoffs:
Each classification will be analyzed, each round.
The Cover IV Podcast will not cover NYS Playoff games.
The Cover IV Podcast will have a dedicated episode for each Section IV NYS Championship Team. The format for each episode may vary and will be based on the coach’s availability.

10/31 - 11/27 and 11/29 - 12/25
