The 2009 schedule includes matchups from Sam Houston High School, South Cameron High School and more. The next matchup, which will be broadcast Sept. 29, will be Sulphur High School vs. Ruston High School.

“By adding this coverage to our entertainment roster, we are giving high school football fans a bit of a second opportunity to catch great matchups between talented young athletes,” said Cameron Communications President George Mack.
