Our varsity football game for this Friday has been selected as NBC Connecticut's Game of the Week. Thanks to everyone for voting! NBC will interview students and highlight the school on Thursday, November 15th. The school segment will be shown on Friday morning (5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.) and Friday evening (5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.). The game will be highlighted on the Friday night (11 p.m.) and Saturday morning news. Great job Morgan!
Four games have been nominated: Fermi at Bloomfield, O’Brien Tech at Putnam/Tourtellotte/Ellis Tech, Coginchaug at Morgan and Valley Regional/Old Lyme at East Hampton/Vinal Tech as our potential Game of the Week. NBC CT will ask people to vote for which game should be the Game of the Week. The game with the most votes at the end of the voting period is NBC's Game of the Week. The winning game will be featured in NBC's Friday night football coverage, and will be broadcast on Fox Sports Radio 1410AM. Winning also means that a reporter will be sent to each school to highlight something within the curriculum. Those stories will air in NBC's morning shows on Friday morning.
The voting period opened Sunday at 6pm and will continue through 9pm on Wednesday night. he winning game will be announced during the 11pm newscast on Wednesday. Voting is taking place through a special app on NBC's Facebook page, http://bit.ly/Swd5jw.
