On its face, the NFHS Network provides live access to high school sports for fans, parents, grandparents, etc. who can't be at games and events in person. Another (perhaps lesser known) aspect of the Network is that it provides schools and state associations with an additional revenue stream - a portion of the money made off of subsciptions goes back to them - to use how they see fit.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has signed an agreement with the NFHS Network to produce and distribute coverage of NCHSAA State Championship and playoff events.
The agreement is for five years, with an automatic renewal for an additional five years should certain conditions within the agreement be met. The Network is expected to provide live streaming coverage through their online subscription platform of NCHSAA playoffs and championships. Fans can expect to find contests ranging from football, basketball, volleyball, wrestling, track, baseball, softball and more.
We're SO CLOSE to having football back FIVE DAYS A WEEK (Thursday through Monday) -- six if you count Tuesday-night #MACtion -- and we couldn't be happier.
For the purpose of this column, however, we'll stick to high school.
There's more than enough storylines to keep you entertained, but here are the TOP FIVE Games of the Week, including: the #1 team in the country, a state-championship rematch, a top-5 state matchup, and two other #1 teams in their respective states.
Labor Day weekend is upon us, and with it the (unofficial) end of summer. Families come together to grill out or enjoy one last weekend at the lake before we're bombarded with pumpkin-spiced everything.
Labor Day also marks a HUGE weekend for High School Football. Some states are entering the third week of their season, whereas others are gearing up for their opening slate. Most importantly, the three-day weekend offers a prime opportunity for teams to travel, which means we, the fans, are the beneficiaries of some big-time interstate matchups.
Brace yourselves for the Labor Day edition of our TOP 5 Games of the Week:
High school football is important to a lot of people, and the final score is usually an indication of how well your team performed.
Last week offered a taste, but with more states starting their football season this week, the NFHS Network boasts a FULL slate of games.
We've got Top 10 NATIONALLY-ranked teams in action, interstate showdowns, defending state champions squaring off against one another, and an abundance of top-rated recruits.
So without further ado, we present our TOP 5 Games of the Week:
We had to wait an extra week for Alabama High School Football to start this year, but the wait may have been worth it. The NFHS Network will be bringing you live coverage of the top action in the state, all season long.
To get you prepped for Friday nights, we've prepared a list of some of the top players to keep your eye on. These guys will soon be suiting up on Saturdays - perhaps for the Crimson Tide or Tigers - so do yourself a favor and familiarize yourself with them by watching them on the NFHS Network.
The days of Georgia high school football going overlooked nationally are no more. The Peach State has held a firm grasp on fourth in overall blue chip talent over the past decade, and they've managed to close the gap between themselves and perennial football factories Texas, Florida & California.
With FORTY four or five-star recruits (according to Rivals) in the class of 2018 alone, the state is absolutely LOADED with future college stars. Everyone is familiar with Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields, but we're here to introduce you to a few other standouts that warrant your attention on Friday nights.
