NFHS Network for Streamed Games

Recommended Posts

NFHS is a site where you pay about $11 per game. For those that have used it how is the quality? Is it professional or like a fan using his cell phone? Looks as though this is the only way that most of us are going to be able to watch the games this season. Have no idea how limiting the crowd to family members and a few others only does anything to mitigate this virus. :rolleyes:

Winter Park HS plays in Showalter Field, a stadium that can easily allow for several thousand fans at a football game. Orange County (Orlando) is limiting attendance to only 2 persons per player; there are no cheerleaders or band members allowed. That means there will be about 200 fans at each game. The latest move by the Orange County School Board is to require every player to be tested for the virus before they can play in a game each week. If a player refuses the test, he cannot play. If a player tests positive, and everyone knows there have been problems with false positives, he cannot re-test at his parents' expense; he has to quarantine for two weeks. The head of the OCSB admitted she didn't want football played this Fall; this has become a political football with Orange County politicians, the OCSB, and the teachers union playing politics with high school football teams as the pawns.

The possibility of a false-positive test result, and the inability to do anything about it, is a problem.  

That said, I'm going to cut all school administrators and school districts a little slack when it comes to restricting who can and who cannot attend a game this season.  

Just heard that both my grandsons tested negative and are eligible to play tomorrow; good news, that and Winter Park is a 44 point favorite according to Pinkos.

    • That kid may not have a place at one of those private schools like you mentioned above but a many a high school would find a place for him.
    • Another way of putting it...the "big" kid always had a place in hs football.  As a hs coach, when that big kid showed up on the practice field, you said, "Son, we'll find a place for you somewhere." Now only the giant and/or fast kid has a place.  In terms of the average population, a 6'0" 230 pound high schooler is a BIG kid.  But in hs football today, if that kid is slow, there is really not a place for him.  He is too small for the line and too slow for any other position, at least in a state like Florida.        
    • Interesting graphic.... https://noahveltman.com/nflplayers/ Interesting comment..."Nowadays if you're 6' 3" and 280 pounds, you're too big for most skill positions and too small to play line." It's fascinating how over time people of a certain stature have been "squeezed out" of D1 football and/or NFL positions.  40 years ago a skilled, 6'3" 280 guy would be a lineman in the NFL.  Nowadays that guy would likely not be starting on a Power 5 team at any position. I wonder if in the future the same will be said for the 6'4" 300 -pound lineman?  Will they be too big and too small to play on an NFL team?  Everything is becoming more and more specialized.  With participation in football already declining in some areas, this level of specialization is a bit concerning.  Years ago, one saw kids of all shapes and sizes playing hs football.  Not anymore, at least not in the hs football hot spot areas.  Combine that with the growing concern over concussions and parents not allowing kids to play football, and I worry what football in the future will have to offer the "average" kid compared to other sports that seem to offer kids of more varying body types the opportunity to play.
    • I appreciate the response.   Let me focus on this one for just a second.   If an offensive player (a lineman or a receiver) is out ahead of the play (such that the QB or RB is behind them), how are they supposed to know when the play ends if there is no audible signal?   I just don't understand how you can ask a downfield blocker to know when he's supposed to stop blocking.  Is he supposed to turn his head and look behind him every other second to see if the play has ended?  Kind of hard to keep his eye on the man he is blocking if his head is turned around.  Maybe Linda Blair could do it, but I don't know of anyone else.  While I understand the easy "play is over" situations like a ball carrier hitting the ground or running out of bounds, what's wrong with a short, loud whistle to let all players know the play is dead?   Plant got burned by an inadvertent whistle in the playoffs a few years ago, so I understand the need to avoid that kind of situation.  But to not blow the whistle when a play is obviously over (to anyone looking at the play), and then turn around and penalize or send players off to cool down when they're still hitting after the play is over, despite no whistle having been blown, simply does not make sense to me.  But I appreciate the explanation. 
    • Request a refund. They grant them pretty easily. Oddly, Lakeland announced they will not offer any streams this year. They had one of the more reliable streams for the last several years. Bummer.
