Monumental Sports Network Launches High School Football Showcase
Coverage commenced this past Saturday with the DC State Athletic Association’s featured season-opener, featuring No. 6-ranked Friendship Collegiate knocking off host Wilson, 45-0. Coverage moved to Northern Virginia over Labor Day weekend, with the WCAC’s Bishop Denis J. O’Connell who hosted North Bethesda’s Georgetown Prep, on Saturday at 1 p.m.
Monumental Sports Network’s grassroots high school programming features a diverse roster of teams and events nationwide, including quality production for live and on-demand viewing. This season’s coverage will spotlight the DMV’s top-ranked teams, rivalries, and lineups including:
- A competitive league in the country, the WCAC, including the conference semifinals and championship game.
- DC’s legendary Thanksgiving tradition, “The Turkey Bowl,” as part of comprehensive coverage of the DC State Athletic Association playoffs.
- The first year of a brand-new regional rivalry game: “Clash of Ward 7,” featuring a Top 10 showdown between HD Woodson and Friendship Collegiate.
- Exciting new match-ups every week, across the DMV and including public, private and charter schools — nearly half of the teams in the Washington Post’s preseason “All-Met Top 20.”
“Giant is excited to support Monumental Sports Network’s coverage of live youth football games,” says Gordon Reid, Division President, Giant Food. “This partnership is a continuation of our efforts to help youth lead healthier lives through multiple channels, including interactions with our in-store nutritionists and offering them healthier products. Nutrition is critical for their performance both on and off the field.”
DMV has to offer all the live, all-access and on-demand action through the Monumental Sports Network’s apps through mobile platforms and streaming services including iOS, Android, RoKu, FireTV, Apple TV, XBox One, and more, as well as monumentalsportsnetwork.com
