Written by: WesternPAFootball Staff on Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012
It’s football season and the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) is proud to unveil its lineup of high school games for the 2012 “Game of the Week” schedule.
Once again, the network has focused on high school teams with players that coaches, college scouts, the media, and fans predict will go on to future high profile college and professional careers on the gridiron.
The 2012 season kicks off on PCN during the Labor Day weekend with a special taped doubleheader on Saturday, September 1 beginning at 6:00 p.m. with the Parkland Trojans taking on the Delaware Valley Warriors. Immediately following the conclusion of the opener at 9:00 p.m., PCN will air the matchup between the Clairton Bears and the Chartiers-Houston Buccaneers. High school football fans will have another chance to cheer with a special Monday encore on September 3 starting at 6:00 p.m.
Throughout the ten-week season, two LIVE Friday night games will be featured while the rest will be taped “Game of the Week” productions airing Saturday evenings. All taped games are courtesy of either a cable television company that serves the team’s viewing area or by an organization with established cable relations.
Coverage during regular-season play leads up to PCN’s exclusive LIVE coverage of the PIAA high school football championships in Hershey. This year’s state championships are scheduled for Friday, December 14 and Saturday, December 15.
