Hueytown vs. Minor AHSAA TV Network GOW Highlights 105 FB Contests on NFHS Network

177 Events Planned by NFHS Network SBP Schools Aug. 29-Sept. 5

Hueytown vs. Helena Tonight in AHSAA Game of the Week

MONTGOMERY – The NFHS Network’s AHSAA School Broadcast Program will live-stream six varsity football games tonight, including Helena at Hueytown in the AHSAA TV Network Game of the Week. The game, produced by NFHS Network TV partner WOTM, will be live-streamed over the NFHS Network subscriber-based program and will also be available on the network of cable stations that have joined the Network in Alabama.
      Hueytown (1-0) hosts Helena (1-0) in tonight’s AHSAA TV Network Game of the Week. Tommy Wood and Rick Rhoades will be handling the commentary for the WOTM/NFHS Network production.
      Sixty-five varsity football games will be live-streamed over the NFHS Network Friday and Saturday with 105 varsity, junior varsity, freshman and middle school games planned from tonight through next Thursday. Varsity games make up 77 of that total.
     In addition, 70 varsity and junior varsity volleyball contests are scheduled to be live-streamed through Sept. 5, one cross country meet and one swim meet for a total of 177 events for the week. Schools will be live-streaming seven varsity and seven junior varsity volleyball matches tonight.
    AHSAA member schools live-streamed 47 events last year during that same time span, we are seeing a whopping increase of 361%. The NFHS Network also live-streamed 55 events last week for a total of 232 events in the first two weekends of the 2019-20 school year.
    The AHSAA ranked eighth nationally in the NFHS Network last school year with 2,762 events live-streamed – an average of approximately 230 events per month. With last weekend’s totals and this week’s totals, AHSAA member schools will have surpassed last year’s average by Sept. 1.
     “A big reason for the amazing increase we are seeing is the NFHS Network’s push to provide schools with Pixellot cameras at a very reasonable cost,” AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese said. “The special camera can be mounted permanently in a stadium or gymnasium and can video any events in those stadiums automatically. Several of our school systems took advantage of the offer and signed up all their schools.”
    The NFHS Network School Broadcast Program provides excellent exposure for school programs as well as opportunities for students to participate in AHSAA events as members of the broadcast production team at each school. Schools can also generate much-needed revenue from advertising sold as well as subscriptions to the Network.
     “Schools tell us the most important reason they participate in the NFHS Network’s School Broadcast Program is because it allows those who are unable to attend the games a chance to see their children and grandchildren participate,” Savarese said. “We have received testimonials from our soldiers stationed around the world and from and others who are telling us how much they appreciate this service which allows them to watch the games live. We are extremely proud of how our schools have made the NFHS Network their own.”
     Among the school systems that joined the NFHS Network this summer are Mobile County and Jefferson County schools systems.
