“We’re thrilled to offer fans around the country a chance to watch these great games on TV and on the Internet, not to mention help increase the visibility of high school football,” said Intersport VP Dan Jones. “Intersport was founded as a television production company, and securing NFL Network and ESPN as partners is an extension of the strong relationships we have with those networks.”

The only game of this year’s Challenge that is not scheduled to be broadcasted via TV or internet as of yet is the Highlands ( Ky.) vs. Trotwood-Madison game on Sept. 2 at Nippert at 6 p.m.

Jones added, “Locking up national TV distribution deals and an Internet partner is more evidence that the Burger King Kirk Herbstreit Ohio vs. USA Challenge is without question the premier high school football event in the country.”
