Let’s get ready for some football! Haverhill High’s Hillies take on St. John’s Prep in Danvers Friday night for their varsity season opener, and 97.9 WHAV FM’s sports team will be there to broadcast all the action as it happens. WHAV Sports Director Paul Ryan and color commentator Tommy Morgan, a former Hillies quarterback, start off the season with a pre-game show from the opposing stadium at 6:30 p.m. ahead of the 7 p.m. kickoff.
