The Community Media Access Collaborative (CMAC) and the Sunnyside High School’s Video Production Academy will produce three high school football games this fall.

The schedule starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25, with Sunnyside hosting San Joaquin Memorial. The other two games are: Stockdale vs Sunnyside, 7:30 p.m. Oct. 2; and Sunnyside vs Roosevelt, 7:30 p.m. Oct. 30.

Nick Papagni and Fred Clark will provide play-by-play and color commentary.

Games will be broadcast live on CMAC’s Education Channel; Comcast XFINITY channel 94, AT&T U-verse channel 99, and streamed online at cmac.tv. They will be available through On Demand the following day.

The video crew will be students from Sunnyside’s Video Production Academy, a program led by instructor Katie McQuone.

“Our Video Production Academy exists to give students hands-on training in real-world, collaborative situations. This partnership with CMAC enables us to do just that,” McQuone says.

CMAC Executive Director Jerry Lee likes the joint effort because it not only gives students hands-on experience but gives exposures to the local sports programs.

The games will also be viewable the next day on-demand at cmac.tv.
