South East High School

Jaguar football: From the field to the flat screen

To know the full details of high school football games, the audience has always had to watch on or by the bleachers. Now, friends, family, and teachers can watch Friday night high school football games on television.

“All home games are broadcasted on Channel 3 on Time Warner Cable, if not it is also on YouTube,” Martin Torrea, a co-anchor during the Azalea Bowl game said. High school football games have been airing on television for more than six years and have benefitted football players in many ways.

“It gives us an opportunity to feel what it is like to be in the NFL, or how to play football at another level,” said Anthony De Paz, a junior from the Technology & Media magnet. South East’s football players get to learn a little of professional football players feel on the field.

“It just gives that wider range of social media. [It’s] like someone watching you on Instagram or through the actual football player apps, [and] more people are able to see you and how you play,” Jonathan Padilla, a senior from the Technology & Media magnet said.

Now that the games are broadcasted on television and archived on YouTube, the players’ family, friends, and other future generations can watch the hard work players put into their games.

As De Paz said, “It [would] make us want to push ourselves a little more, that way other schools and other people could see what we’re all about here at South East.”

Games will broadcast on Time Warner Cable Channel 3 when football season returns next year.
