Two New England companies will join forces this fall to help bring more high school football video to the web as the Kraft Group and Cambridge-based YouCastr recently announced a partnership that will provide area schools the opportunity to broadcast their games.
From the Kraft Group's press release:
The Kraft Group announced a partnership with YouCastr of Cambridge, Mass., today. Together, they will provide high schools throughout New England an opportunity to broadcast their football games over the Internet.
The Kraft Group will utilize its Web site, newenglandfootball.com, as a central locator and promoter of high school football video. YouCastr will provide the tools to schools to broadcast on-demand video, and help them monetize content geared to families, boosters, alumni and the general public. Each school’s content will be available on newenglandfootball.com, where every high school football team in New England has its own team information page, and the school’s Web site, if it chooses.
All the team information pages on newenglandfootball.com also feed interactive kiosks in The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon, the New England Patriots’ 36,000-square-foot hall of fame and interactive experience. The kiosks are part of The Hall’s “New England Football” exhibit, where visitors can find information not only on high school football, but the complete history of football in the six-state region.
And, remember, you can always check out all of our own football video as part of our high school video collection.
Several reporters and editors contribute updates, news and analysis to the High School Sports Blog.
- Bob Holmes: A Reading resident (Go Rockets!) and Boston College graduate, Holmes is the Boston Globe High School Sports Editor. We remind you now that his weekly picks are often made in jest so everyone just calm down when he picks against Everett for 11 straight weeks. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @GlobeHolmes.
- Craig Larson: A native of West Springfield (Leo Durocher anyone? Tim Daggett?) and Curry College graduate (a proud Colonel!), Larson is the sports editor for the Globe's regional sections: South, West and North, as well as a frequent contributor on the college beat. Abington to Xaverian: it all starts with the schools. Have a compelling story idea? Contact him at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @GlobeLars.
- Zuri Berry: Berry attended the same high school as sports legends O.J. Simpson and Joe DiMaggio. (Guess which one is his hero.)
