Area High School Football Teams Look for Television Coverage


Wald, Bruce, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Perennial scholastic powers Thomas Jefferson, McKeesport and up- and-coming Elizabeth Forward High School will be the local teams that appear on Fox Sports Net Pittsburgh's second season of broadcasting high school football games.

This season, the first three FSN games will be played on Saturdays while the rest of the regular season broadcasts will take place on Thursday nights as was the scenario in last fall's inaugural season. All of these games will begin at 7 p.m. except for the first two Saturday contests. The FSN high school football season will begin with a Sept. 2 doubleheader featuring Central Catholic at Gateway at noon and Greensburg Central Catholic at East Allegheny at 3 p.m. One week later, Bishop Canevin will play at Serra Catholic, 7 p.m.

McKeesport, the 2005 WPIAL and PIAA Class AAAA champion, will appear on FSN on Oct. 5 when the Tigers play host to Bethel Park High School.

Thomas Jefferson, last year's WPIAL Class AAA finalist and 2004 WPIAL and PIAA champion, will play at Elizabeth Forward with the FSN cameras on Sept. 14, which will be the first of seven Thursday night telecasts. Following that local fray will be West Allegheny at Ambridge and Shady Side Academy at Valley High School on Sept. 21 and Sept. 28 respectively. After the McKeesport-Bethel Park game, the FSN high school football regular season will conclude with Blackhawk at Moon (Oct. 12), South Park at Seton-LaSalle (Oct. 19), and Hampton at Pine-Richland (Oct. 26).

Unlike past years, FSN also will broadcast three weeks of playoff games leading into the WPIAL championship finals. As they have since 1986, FSN will broadcast all four of the WPIAL championship games. This year's quartet of title games will take place the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, at Heinz Field. The last time the four WPIAL title games were not contested on a Saturday was 2002.

CUTV high school football

Many more area high school football fans will have the opportunity to see their local football teams on tape-delay television when California University Television returns for its 20th consecutive year of broadcasting area teams.

CUTV's coverage of high school football games will be on Sunday and Thursday nights and can be viewed on Armstrong Cable (channels 39 or 61 dependiing on location), Atlantic Broadband Communications (channel 21, formerly Charter Communications) and Comcast Mon Valley (channel 13). Sunday rebroadcasts will air at 8:30 p.m. while the Thursday night airings will be at 5:30 p.m.

J.R. Wheeler, dean of media services and founder of CUTV, said the 2006 schedule will be released in early summer.

"Understandably, the high school football games are very popular and we are pleased to continue to provide this service to our surrounding communities," Wheeler said. "Before we finalize the schedule we must work out logistics with high school stadiums, mostly if there is room to accommodate our production truck. We want to cover as many area high school football teams as we can."
