INDIANAPOLIS, IN (August 29, 2017) —Mark Koski, director of sports, events and development at the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) for the past 10 years, has been selected chief executive officer of the NFHS Network. Koski’s appointment by the NFHS Network Board of Directors is effective September 1.
The NFHS Network, a joint venture between the NFHS, its member state associations and PlayOn! Sports, provides live and on-demand video of high school sports events through a digital network available at www.NFHSNetwork.com and on Apple TV. The NFHS Network, now in its fifth year of operation, covered more than 25,000 events last year involving 27 sports and activities.
Koski will continue to serve on the NFHS administrative staff as director of marketing and will divide his time between the NFHS Network headquarters in Atlanta and the NFHS office in Indianapolis.
“The NFHS Network Board of Directors sees in Mark Koski a person who has a powerful passion for the mission and potential of the NFHS Network,” said Jack Roberts, president of the NFHS Network Board of Directors and executive director of the Michigan High School Athletic Association. “He was involved with the Network when it was only an idea, has been instrumental in expanding its reach and has great ideas for furthering its success.
“Most important to the Board is that Mark has an excellent understanding of the needs of state high school associations, having served in the New Mexico association office and then serving all state associations during his decade on the NFHS staff; and he has gained the trust and respect of my counterparts across the country,” Roberts continued. “The hiring of Mark Koski and the location of the Network CEO in Indianapolis signal the next important phase in the development of the NFHS Network, which provides the NFHS its most significant tool ever for promoting the values of school-sponsored sports to students, schools and society.”
Since joining the NFHS staff in 2007, Koski has directed all major NFHS events and meetings. He also has been editor of the NFHS Soccer Rules Book and NFHS Field Hockey Rules Book and served on the NFHS Rules Review Committee.
Koski has been responsible for a tremendous growth in corporate partnerships for the NFHS the past five years as director of development. Currently, the NFHS has more than 20 corporate partners with total corporate revenue of $2.2 million annually. He also has led the national #MyReasonWhy public relations campaign the past two years and has been staff liaison with the NFHS Network since its formation in 2013.
“We are excited about the opportunities that Mark’s appointment brings both to the NFHS and the NFHS Network,” said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director. “We see the integration of NFHS marketing opportunities with the NFHS Network as a win-win for both organizations.”
Prior to joining the NFHS staff in 2007, Koski was assistant director of the New Mexico Activities Association (NMAA) for four years, where he served as director of corporate development. He helped the NMAA increase its annual corporate sponsorship revenue from $27,000 to $700,000. He also was instrumental in starting the NMAA Foundation, which raised more than $100,000 in its first year of existence.
Koski graduated from Highland High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1995. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from the University of New Mexico in 2000, where he was a decathlete and 400-meter sprinter for the Lobo track and field team for four years, and his master’s degree in sport administration from UNM in 2003. As a member of the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA), Koski earned his Certified Athletic Administrator (CAA) status in 2005 and his Certified Master Athletic Administrator (CMAA) in 2007. He is currently in the final phase of receiving his doctorate in educational administration.
Prior to joining the NMAA, Koski was a physical education and special education teacher at Manzano High School in Albuquerque for three years. He served as head track and field coach at Manzano for one year, where he helped increase participation from 30 to 130 student-athletes. Koski also served as assistant football coach for three years and assistant track coach for two years.
During his time with the NMAA, Koski served on the NFHS Baseball Rules Committee and the NFHS Track and Field Rules Committee. At the state level, Koski was president-elect of the New Mexico Sports Hall of Fame Board of Directors and a member of the Board of Directors of the New Mexico Games and the New Mexico Track and Cross Country Coaches Association.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to take the NFHS Network to new heights as its chief executive officer,” Koski said. “After serving 10 years at the NFHS national office, I have learned how important and influential our state associations are to the success of the NFHS and our NFHS Network. Building and fostering relationships with the state associations has always been a priority of mine, and I will take that with me to the NFHS Network. Great things lie ahead for the NFHS, its member associations and our Network – I am honored to be a part of it.”

MONTGOMERY – A scoring flurry in the third quarter of Randolph’s 56-21 victory over DAR resulted in four touchdowns on four consecutive plays – propelling the Class 4A, Region 7 rivals into the AHSAA Football Record Book and into the AHSAA Prep Spotlight for Week 8.
It started with 3:00 on the clock when receiver Antonio Nichols of DAR, coached by Robert Rhoades, hauled in a 5-yard pass from quarterback Will Bailey to cut the Raiders’ lead to 42-7. On the ensuing kickoff, Randolph running back Sam Kimel returned the kickoff 81 yards for a touchdown as the Raiders of Coach Nick Flanagan stretched the lead to 48-7. On Randolph’s kickoff, Patriots return man Brayden Lewis raced 92 yards for a DAR TD. Kimel, waiting at his own 20-yard line, took the following DAR kickoff at his 21 and raced 78 yards for yet another score.
The three kickoffs in a row tied the AHSAA state record set in 2012. Elba and Vincent were the first two high school teams in the nation to accomplish the feat when the Tigers and Yellow Jackets opened the second half of their 2012 Class 2A state playoff game won by Elba 59-22. Elba had the first and third returns and Vincent got the one in the middle.
According to research conducted in 2012, no schools at the high school, college or NFL level had any evidence of back-to-back-to-back kickoff returns for TDs in football history.
Kimel’s efforts didN'T end with the two kickoff returns. He also scored twice on interception returns covering 75 and 35 yards, respectively, to give him four touchdowns without an offensive snap in Randolph’s win.
The scoring flurry edged out the passing effort of Davidson senior quarterback Cephus Johnson and his favorite receiver Demorris Coleman. The Warriors of Coach Fred Riley nipped Jackson 50-49 as Johnson passed for a school-record 410 yards. He was 21-of-34 with four touchdown passes. Coleman had nine catches for 228 yards and two scores.
KAITLYN ROGERS, SPRING GARDEN: Connected on 3-of-4 extra points and was also crowned homecoming queen during the Panthers' 45-0 victory over Holy Spirit.
JAXTON CARSON, CENTRAL-PHENIX CITY: Ran for 226 yards on 20 carries with three touchdowns as Central rushed for 606 of its 745-yard total in a 59-28 win over Lee-Montgomery. The win gave the Red Devils their third consecutive region title under Coach Jamey DuBose. It was the first time in school history that the team has won three titles in a row. The 606 rushing yards and 745 total yards are also school records. Quarterback Zion Webb also ran for 172 yards on 12 carries with a TD and passed for another 139 yards with a TD in the win.

MONTGOMERY – Hoover High School’s NFHS Network School Broadcast Program earned the NFHS Network School Broadcast Program’s highest award, elite status, for the 2015-16 school year, according to an announcement from the NFHS Network.
The SBP program produced by Hoover High School and its instructor Jeff Lloyd was the AHSAA’s only school to receive the Elite status. Nine others earned NFHS Network Select status: Albertville, Baldwin County of Nay Minette, Boaz, Florence, Hartselle, Jacksonville, McGill-Toolen Catholic of Mobile, Prattville and Saraland high schools.
Each summer the NFHS Network recognizes schools in the School Broadcast Program that have done an outstanding job throughout the previous school year. Elite and Select schools demonstrate professional, excellent broadcasting skills while covering sports and other events at their schools. These schools distinguished themselves as leaders among the 1,500+ schools involved in the School Broadcast Program, and the NFHS Network applauds them for their continued dedication and contributions to the Network.
Florence High School’s NFHS School Broadcast Program has been a leader nationally with its quality broadcasting and was recognized in 2015 and 2016 for its excellence in broadcasting. Directed by Randy Bruce, a faculty member and coach at Florence, the student-run live-streaming broadcast network was named NFHS Network’s Best Live Sports Broadcast for both years. Florence also was a finalist for best original programming in the 2015-16 school year. Albertville High School’s Tyler May was one of three finalists for NFHS Network Teacher of the Year.
The NFHS Network’s School Broadcast Program is continuing to add schools from the AHSAA with more than 40 AHSAA contests live-streamed last weekend through the NFHS Network’s School Broadcast Program platform.
The AHSAA applauds these schools and hope that all our schools continue to strive to produce outstanding programming for their NFHS Network SBP.
We continue to be amazed at the quality of the coverage and the talents of our student broadcasters and look forward to viewing our schools’ NFHS Network productions this school year.
