RENTON, Wash. – The WIAA will broadcast all six Gridiron Classic Football Championships on its new online portal beginning, Friday, Dec. 2nd and concluding Saturday Dec. 3rd.

Both contests will be archived and posted to the online portal for fans after the finals are complete. The games will also be shown on the Fox College Sports channel on a tapedelay. Brad Adam and Jason Stiles will have the call for Root Sports.
The remaining four games will be aired live at www.WIAANetwork.com. Legendary broadcaster Bob Robertson will be the play-by-play talent during the 1B championship on Friday and the 1A championship on Saturday.
