EAST LANSING, Mich. – Oct. 6 – Among the live events available this week on MHSAA.tv is a live football game for the top spot in the OK Conference Blue Division with Grand Rapids West Catholic at Comstock Park Friday at 7 p.m. 

Both teams are tied for first in the OK Blue at 2-0; with Comstock Park, the No. 2 team in Division 4 in this week’s Associated Press poll, sporting a 5-1 record;  and West Catholic, the two-time defending champion in Division 5, sporting a 4-2 overall mark.  The game is being produced by Comstock Park students involved in the School Broadcast Program. 

In its seventh year, the School Broadcast Program gives members an opportunity to showcase excellence in their schools by  creating video programming of athletic and non-athletic events; with students gaining skills in announcing, camera operation, directing/producing and graphics.  

The program also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.   

All sporting events – Live or On-Demand - are available on a subscription basis only for their first 72 hours online.  They become available for free, on-demand viewing approximately 72 hours following their completion.
