Viewers' Choice: Vote for High School Lites game coverage

Who wants it more?

We are putting High School Lites, Chicagoland’s top prep sports show, in the hands of area football fans in our “Viewers’ Choice Game of the Week.” Fans will get the chance to pick one game that the NBC Sports Chicago (@NBCSPreps) crew will cover on Thursday night. We will send our cameras to the game that gets the most votes; highlights of that game will appear on Friday night's “High School Lites” broadcast at 11 p.m. — just after Chicago Bulls basketball. The show also live streams at NBCSportsChicago.com/watchlive. High School Lites will also have broadcast replays at 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. the following Saturday. This week, for the first time all year, we’re giving Thursday some love. You ready, Chicago Public League? The following Thursday games are up for coverage:

Phoenix vs. Urban Prep/West, 4:15 p.m. (Rockne Stadium)

Hyde Park vs. Washington, 4:15 p.m. (Gately Stadium)

Morgan Park vs. Goode, 7:15 p.m. (Gately Stadium)

Poll opens Monday at 12 p.m. and closes Thursday at 3 p.m. Here is what fans need to do to vote:

— Follow @NBCSPreps on Twitter.
— Note the “pinned Tweet” atop the @NBCSPreps feed. Vote for the game you want us to cover.
— Spread the word! 

We will make an announcement on @NBCSPreps just after 3 p.m. Thursday with the official results of which game will be covered. And as a reminder, be sure to follow @NBCSPreps for updates on the “Viewers’ Choice Game of the week,” along with other high school sports news, scores and highlights this season.

Scouting Report:

"Undersized free safety with the heart of a linebacker. Baker plays with a competitive desire that leaps off the field when you watch him thanks to elite football character and above-average explosiveness. While he is undersized, he makes up for it with his football instincts and plus play speed. Baker has the talent to become a play-making safety with Pro Bowl potential if he can sustain his health." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
