After coaching football for 10 years, Mike Peck has his first opportunity to lead a program at Prairie High School. “Each day, I feel like I’m living my dream,” he said.

Video professionals and dozens of student volunteers from Battle Ground, Evergreen and Vancouver public schools will be broadcasting live high school sporting events during the fall season.

Although teachers from those districts are involved in a work stoppage, athletic events are still taking place because coaches and teachers work under a different contract and are not in salary negations.

Battle Ground Schools will broadcast football games live and in high definition this year. The district will be broadcasting four live football games, two soccer games and two volleyball games.

Evergreen Public Schools (EPS Sports) will be broadcasting eight live football games and nine girls soccer games from McKenzie Stadium.

Vancouver Public Schools (VPS Game Time) will be broadcasting four live football games from Kiggins Bowl and five volleyball games from around the district.

Production crews include students who learn valuable, real-life job skills by performing virtually every task on the crew, from operating video cameras and instant replay systems to running audio and on-screen graphics systems. Games will be broadcast on TV ETC Comcast channels 27, 29, 28, and 328 (HD) and where possible, will be streamed on each district’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
