SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV -

Students at South Charleston High School in South Charleston, West Virginia are using technology to change the way people watch football.

Thursday, August 28, the Black Eagles will take on George Washington High School. For the first time a group of tech-savvy students from South Charleston will live stream the game.

Brianna Herscher will be in front of the camera doing sideline interviews.

"I've been watching a lot of news and just trying to be the best I can," Herscher said.

Students will operate the cameras and the computers. Senior Eli Cook will be tackling the job of commentary.

"A lot of people are going to be watching that game because it is a rivalry game," Cook said. "I think I can handle it."

Students will also be unveiling a brand new big screen that they'll be operating from the press box.

"I am excited for this," Cook said. "I have been excited about this since last year."

Students spent part of the day Wednesday practicing for the big event.

"I think it is a tremendous opportunity to be able to do this because not a lot of kids have the opportunity to be able to do it."

To watch the game go to South Charleston High School's website and click on SCTV Network. That link takes you to the High School Sports Network.

To watch the games live you must pay a subscription fee. Subscriptions are sold in one month, six month and one year amounts. Fees range from $14.95 to $119.95.

A portion of the money goes back to the school to continue the program.

The games are archived after 48 hours and are available to view for free.

The school has been streaming other events such as basketball games and graduation for several months.
