Live streaming Farmer athletics a new reality

by | Nov 26, 2020 | Sports

With the pandemic in full swing this summer, many schools weren’t sure if they would get to play fall sports.

Once it was determined they could play, they also figured that crowds had to be limited. In the past, the UIL, the govern­ing body for Texas High School Athletics, has been strict on not allowing high school sports to be broadcast online. The rationale was that they wanted the fans to attend the games rather than stay home and watch.

However, with limited crowds, the UIL finally relented and opened up the ability for games to be broadcast and live streamed. Farmersville High School AV Production teacher JP Gregoriew saw this as an oppor­tunity to expand what his class could do.
