Repost from the Town of Pike Road
Great Opportunities for Pike Road Patriots, On and Off the Field; Patriot Sports Network Helps Kick Off Varsity Football Season
On August 30, Mayor Stone had the opportunity to speak with the Pike Road Schools varsity football team after practice. After congratulating them on their first win as a varsity team, he encouraged them to learn from each other, work together, and lead their teammates and friends to victory on and off of the field.
Each player received a recording of the first Patriot Sports Network Broadcast from the Aug. 25 season opener as a reminder of their opportunities as trailblazers and change-makers. Mayor Stone looks forward to presenting recordings to the band and cheerleaders next week. As a Town, it is exciting to see the progress the Pike Road Schools system has made in the past few years, and we look forward to seeing our area’s young people achieve great things, together and as individuals.
The Patriot Sports Network is a partnership between Pike Road Schools and WTXK ESPN the Ticket (107.5 FM / 1210 AM) designed to teach students digital media production, broadcast journalism, and related disciplines through live radio broadcast of the Patriots football games and other academic endeavors.
