MHSAA Programming Begins for 2013-14

The new school year begins on the Michigan High School Athletic Association Network this week with school-created content on, the season launch of MHSAA Football Friday Overtime on FOX Sports Detroit, and a new season of MHSAA Perspective on a statewide radio network.

The School Broadcast Program gives member schools an opportunity to create video programming, with students gaining skills in announcing, camera operation, and graphics; using the software provided by PlayOn! Sports. The program also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.

As many as 60 MHSAA member schools annually participate in the program, which is in its fifth year. Schools interested in becoming a part of the School Broadcast Program should contact John Johnson at the MHSAA Office.

Beginning this Friday and running for 13 weeks at Midnight is MHSAA Football Friday Overtime on FOX Sports Detroit. Mickey York and Rob Rubick return to host the weekly 30-minute highlights show.

Back for its ninth season this week is the radio commentary MHSAA Perspective, presented by the Michigan Army National Guard, which will air on over 60 radio stations across the state, generally during the local broadcasts of high school games. The program runs for 30 weeks through the end of the winter sports season. MHSAA Perspective can also be accessed from the home page of the MHSAA Website at
