UIL OKs Streaming Once more for Texas Excessive Faculty Soccer | Secondary college
If you enjoyed Friday Night Lights the (actual) TV show, buckle up, it won’t go away.
The UIL Legislative Council at its meeting on Tuesday approved online streaming of high school football matches for the 2021 season. Last year in response to COVID-19, the UIL allowed Friday night games to be streamed for the first time, which Executive Director Charles Breithaupt described as “a one-off”. However, the success of such programs – especially for older or home-bound viewers – caused the UIL to reconsider the idea.
Another topic discussed but ultimately rejected by the Legislative Council was the introduction of a shot clock for grades 6A and 5A high school basketball.
