MHSAA TV Returns for 2015-16

September 2, 2015

By John Johnson
MHSAA communications director

A growing number of games can be followed on the website as more schools begin to stream their game statistics live using Digital Scout.

Digital Scout enables schools to enter statistics while a game is in progress on mobile devices – such as phones and tablets – and fans can follow along on their own handhelds or on laptops or desktop computers with a subscription to the NFHS Network.  The software is free for schools to use and available for football, basketball and volleyball.

Live stats were available for more than 40 football games during opening weekend, and one game had both live stats and video from a school participating in the MHSAA’s School Broadcast Program.  A number of volleyball matches also were available.

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 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.

Here’s the schedule of School Broadcast Program members planning to stream competition this week for broadcast at  (As of Aug. 31):

Several schools joined the School Broadcast Program over the summer – all members of the Detroit Catholic High School League, Flint Kearsley, Holly, Livonia Stevenson, Marquette, and Midland Dow – bringing the total number of members to 63.  Of this group, Flint Kearsley will be live streaming its first event Thursday.  More SBP programming is expected once students hit the classroom for the new year next week.  A complete list of participating schools can be found on the School Broadcast Program page of the MHSAA Website.

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

In its second week of the season, at midnight, is MHSAA Football Friday Overtime on FOX Sports Detroit.  Mickey York and Rob Rubick host the weekly 30-minute highlights show.  The show will re-air most Saturday and Sunday mornings – and will be archived on the FOX Detroit Website.  This week, FFOT will re-air at 8:30 a.m., 3:30 p.m., and 11:30 p.m. on Saturday; and at 8 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. on Sunday on FOX Sports Detroit.  The show also will re-air on Saturday at 7 p.m. on FOX Sports Detroit-PLUS.

The following games are scheduled to be highlighted this week on Football Friday Overtime:

  • Caro at Millington
  • Frankenmuth at Birch Run
  • Monroe Jefferson at Grosse Ile
  • Carleton Airport at New Boston Huron
  • Detroit Mumford at Detroit Denby
