Many high schools around the country have the basic journalism classes with school newspapers and yearbook classes being the staple.

However at Flour Bluff High School, they are taking their media work a step further. Starting this year, Flour Bluff began offering a course called Sports Information and Entertainment.

The class allows students to become more involved in sports media at school.

“We’ve put together a website, we have a social media presence as well as the kids are not editing and creating their own videos,” Bob Chapman, the class’ teacher, said.

Students are writing articles and posting scores from games inside the classroom, but they are also doing plenty of work outside of it as well.

“The kids are out reporting the games, the kids are actually interviewing the coaches and they are actually building the website,” Chapman said.
