High School Football on ESPN


Well-known member
Typically not very interesting to watch.

There is an outside company that does the research and recommends matchups to ESPN, whom has the final say.

Few years ago the Coldwater/Kenton game was recommended and would have taken a Sunday afternoon time slot but "The official word from Paragon Marketing (sub contractor for ESPN) is that the Coldwater vs Kenton week 1 football game on ESPN has been denied due to lack of production money for that weekend of games. ESPN will be limiting the amount of HS games they air that opening week due to the lack of dollars for them."
