EAST LANSING, Mich. – Jan. 7 –  A number of MHSAA members participating in the School Broadcast Program made a field trip to Ford Field back in November for the Football Finals, and videos chronicling the visit are available for viewing online.

Videos from Cedar Springs, Davison and Montrose can all be seen on the Second Half page of the MHSAA website.  Nearly 80 students from seven different schools took part in the Ford Field Trip, got tours of the Game Creek Video FX facilities that will be used by FOX Sports to produce the upcoming Super Bowl, and some students got an opportunity to call play-by-play online.

The School Broadcast Program, powered by PlayOn! Sports, is a platform which schools can utilize to reach members of their community about activities taking place in their buildings, providing recognition for students while at the same time giving them hands-on opportunities to gain broadcasting experience and providing schools an opportunity to realize additional revenues for their programs.

Schools interested in becoming a part of the School Broadcast Program should contact John Johnson at the MHSAA Office.
