Super Bowl Saturday coverage plan
Looking ahead to Super Bowl Saturday, with 18 championship football game being played across Massachusetts, we wanted to give you a look at what's coming down the pipeline for coverage on ESPNBoston.com on one of the busiest days of the high school athletics calendar.
In honor of the teams who have stepped up their game to get to Super Saturday, we're ratcheting up our coverage as well. Here's a look at what's in store for Satruday:
LIVE STREAM As we did last year, ESPNBoston.com will be the exclusive internet carrier of all Eastern, Central and Western Mass. Super Bowl games from Gillette Stadium with a live feed of the action. We'll have you covered all day with the six games from the home of the New England Patriots accessible here.
LIVE CHAT While you're sitting at home (or on the job trying to sneak a peak at the games), be sure to check out our live chat hosted on the website. High Schools co-editors Scott Barboza and Brendan Hall, along with correspondant Andy Smith, will be your chat moderators. We'll also have Twitter updates from our far-flung correspondants to keep you current on scores across the state along with insights and analysis. And, as always, be sure to get in on the conversation because the more the merrier. You can find the CoverIt Live chat here.
VIDEO As always, we'll have our video cameras in tow, getting you the raw story from the stars of the day along with our written recaps. In addition, Scott and Brendan will be joined by Swampscott football head coach Steve Dembowski and Norwood head coach John Sarianides to break down each of the games from Gillette Stadium as soon as they go final. We'll wrap up the day's action with an extended breakdown once the day is through.
TWITTER Even if you're away from your computer, or out at the games, be sure to keep up with the action via our official Twitter feed @ESPNBostonHS and @BHallESPN. We'll keep you up-to-date on all the happenings while passing along updates from our correspondants in the field.
