Juniors Brandon Clark, Brandon Tiepelman and Jorge Coronado broadcast a football game for PattonvilleTODAY on Facebook Live.

This year was the first year that football games were broadcast and streamed through Facebook via Facebook Live by students enrolled in a new journalism class called Pirates Sports Net. Me and two of my friends, Jorge Coronado and Brandon Tiepelman, got the opportunity to broadcast all of the home football games and the state championship game at Farout Field which was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.

We got the opportunity to get a perspective of what it’s like to be a sports journalist in our class, Pirate Sports Network, in which we wrote articles, were assigned sports beats, broadcasted football and basketball games, and did weekly podcasts involving sports.

Brandon Tiepelman elaborated on his experience in the class this year.

“Commentating with Brandon and Jorge was an awesome experience,” he said. “I’ve met a lot of awesome people during this BB&J thing.”

The group named themselves BB&J which stands for Brandon, Brandon, and Jorge and it was a nickname that clicked over time.

“I’m going to miss the guys due to me going to Pos next year,” Tiepelman said, “but I’ll still hopefully be commentating the football games with Jorge and Brandon.”

We will be broadcasting all of the home football games next year and we look to expand our horizons by broadcasting more basketball, wrestling, baseball and soccer games too.

We are excited to see where our broadcasting takes us heading into our senior year.
