A father-son duo lobbed a perfect play for the first round of high school playoffs coverage on WRAL-TV last Friday. WRAL-TV Documentary Photographer Jay Jennings and his son, WRAL-TV Multimedia Sports Journalist Jason Jennings, tag-teamed on a game package to surprise WRAL-TV Sports Anchor Jeff Gravley, who is in his final season as host of WRAL’s Football Friday.
The pair reported from the Apex Friendship v. Green Hope game.
“It was a night I’ll never forget,” posted Jennings. “My son Jason and I tag team the highlights to surprise Jeff Gravley. We’ve talked about doing this for quite a while. Finally pulled it off. So proud of my son. It was an honor to share the story with him.”
From a DJ Khalid reference to high energy tossing back and forth, the Jennings did not disappoint.
“That, my friend, is a showdown package,” said a delighted Gravley. “With the Jennings family. Holy cow.”
Tune in to WRAL’s Football Friday tonight at 11:35pm for the second round of high school playoffs.
