We are very excited to announce tonight that for the fourth consecutive year, KRIS 6 Communications will once again telecast "live" high school football games this coming season.
We have a really great lineup of five games to tell you about.and more games could be on the way.
And all the games will be broadcast in crystal clear high definition on our sister station the CW.
Once again, I’ll be joined by Paul Alexander for these exclusive live broadcast events.
Three of our five games will be telecast on Saturday nights and we are extremely thrilled about them.
We will also have two Thursday games.
Our first game will take place on the opening weekend of the season.
On Aug. 31, we are going to feature a couple of old rivals, Aransas Pass at Rockport-Fulton.
Earlier today, we caught up with Panthers Coach Ryan Knotsman. He appears to be really pumped up about putting his team on TV against the Pirates.
“What y’all are able to do and offer for a kid to be able to play a high school football game on tv, that makes them feel like they are on Saturday or Sunday NFL,” Knotsman said. “They get exposure and experience of getting their game broadcast.”
Knotsman expects a tough game against Rockport-Fulton.
“The past few years it has been really tight,” Knotsman said. “It's always a great game. Both sides get up for it because we are just right down the road.
“We missed out (because of) Harvey two years ago then we played them last year and it was a healing experience because we finally put all that away and get to playing some football
