NFHS Livestreaming Explained to Lions Club

Lions President Brandon Gorman and Lumberjack Live owner Rob Rep.
The Warren Lions Club met Wednesday, June 22, at noon in Molly's.  The topic for the program of the day was the changes to Lumberjack Live since owner Rob Reep has partnered with the NFHS (National Federation of High Schools) and entered into a contract with the Warren School District to cover year-round sporting events.  Reep explained the advantages of the new partnership as:
   a.  the ability to cover playoff games
   b.  the school will financially benefit by receiving part of the revenue generated from the subscriptions
   c.  access not only to live games but also to re-play games on demand
   d.  access to other NFHS live-streamed games from other schools (live and on-demand)

Reep also explained that subscription rates are very reasonable and are available at different levels. For just $50 a year, patrons will be guaranteed at least 20 sporting events throughout the entire school year.  However, season rates are available as well as individual games.

After football season, Reep plans to livestream a game of the week, whether it is basketball, soccer, baseball, or softball.  He plans to try to cover as many away games as possible.
