High-school football’s regular season kicks off this Friday night for area schools Class 4A and under, and if you can't make it to some of the CCISD games in person, don't worry -- we got you covered.
We are very excited to once again be broadcasting live high-school football.
This year on our sister station, KDF-TV, we will be airing nine CCISD games.
With limited seating capacity at both Buccaneer Stadium and Cabaniss Field due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of fans who would normally attend live games may decide to stay home instead, and these televised games will let them enjoy a game while staying safe at home.
"A lot of people are skittish coming out, and we understand that, so that's why we have tried to work with Channel 6 and try to give venues to where people can watch at home," said CCISD Athletics Director Brenda Marshall.
This year, KRIS 6 News is teaming up with Miller High School's media production class to showcase its video, which is seen on the stadium's video boards.
"Oh, this is great experience for the kids,” Marshall said. “You know, they practice it in the classroom, and now it's really going to get to be seen all over the viewing area."
It all starts this Friday night when we televise Miller and Tuloso-Midway from Buc Stadium -- the first of several intriguing matchups, which includes the highly anticipated re-match between Vets Memorial and Miller, who are no longer district rivals, on Sept. 25.
But bragging rights will be on the line.
But what could turn out to be the most talked about game of the year will take place on Oct. 16 when fourth-ranked Calallen takes on No. 7 Miller at Buc Stadium. This game could decide the 15-4A Division I district title.
