Friday night football has gone to a whole ‘nother level in Texas – if that’s even possible.
Fox Sports Southwest and Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine have joined up to bring a one-of-its-kind prep football show this fall.
FSS High School Football Friday will be a four-hour show on Friday nights featuring live games spread over three shows beginning on Zero Week.
The show will air from 7-11 p.m. and will continue until week 10. It will include highlights, live reports from across Texas, and game previews.
Powered by DCTF, the show will also travel to the best game of the week and FSS will brings its 20-foot set and intereactive booths for fans.
“It will be a Friday football extravaganza,” said FOX Sports Southwest Senior Vice President/General Manager Jon Heidtke. “It can revolutionize high school football coverage in a way that’s never been done before. We’ll be getting continuous reports and highlights from dozens of contributors and photographers from all parts of the state.”
The show’s first live game will be San Antonio Madison at Cibolo Steel on Aug. 26.
