Montrose won the Program of the Year honor again in 2015-16, and was also honored by the NFHS Network as one of its Elite SBP schools nationwide.  In addition to repeating as the top school in the program, Montrose captured first place honors in three of the five individual categories. 

Montrose took first place in Best Student Play-By-Play (Eric Vandefifer and Conner Pyrc – Boys Basketball game v. Goodrich), and the top two spots for Best Produced Commercial/Feature (Eric Vandefifer, Conner Pyrc, Jared Adams, Mandy Rasmey, John Blackford – Ford Field Trip Feature; and Amanda Ramsey, Jared Adams, Alyssa Bernard, –  RAINN Sexual Assault PSA).  The program also took second and third place for Best Use of PlayOn!

Saginaw Arts & Sciences Academy; and Peyton Hobson, John Blackford, Conner Pyrc – Boys Basketball game v. Corunna); and third place in Best Multicamera Production (Eric Vandefifer, Conner Pyrc, Jared Adams, Mandy Ramsey, John Blackford – Boys Basketball game v. Saginaw Arts & Sciences Academy).  Montrose also demonstrated during the year a good blend of productions in a variety of sports covered, the ability to cover home and away events and an overall command of the PlayOn! Sports software used for graphics and inserting commercials/features during the course of productions. 

The presentation will be shown live on MHSAA.tv as one of a number of live events being streamed online this year by School Broadcast Program members. 

In its eighth 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 delayed - 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.
