One of the area's oldest high school football rivalries, Palo Alto vs. Sequoia, will kick off a new series of live high definition football webcasts in the Bay Area on Friday at 7 p.m.
BAOSN.TV plans to broadcast 32 high school and community college football games this fall, plus several other sports events, according to executive producer Jim Petromilli. All games will be carried live (online) and be available free of charge. They will also be archived for replay on demand.
Other sports on the fall schedule include high school girls volleyball and boys and girls water polo.
BAOSN will use four state-of-the-art HD cameras to cover different angles from high in the stadium and press box to field level. Coverage will include instant replay and slow motion -- with analysis by a team of announcers.
A dozen community colleges from throughout Northern California will be featured in the 13 games involving two year college football teams. The opening game in that series pits College of the Siskiyous at College of San Mateo on Saturday at 1 p.m. Pregame coverage begins at 12:45 p.m.
This is the first meeting for those two colleges.
High schools on the football schedule include Aragon, Burlingame, Capuchino, Carlmont, Everett Alvarez, Burlingame, Half Moon Bay, Hillsdale, Independence, Lincoln (San Francisco), Live Oak, Lynbrook, Menlo School, Mills, Sacred Heart Prep, San Mateo, Santa Teresa, Soquel, South San Francisco, Terra Nova -- in addition to Palo Alto and Sequoia.
The Sequoia-Paly football series, meanwhile, dates to 1927 when the two schools competed together in the Peninsula Athletic League. The 1968 Palo Alto vs. Sequoia "Little Big Game" drew 30,000 fans at Stanford Stadium. Palo Alto's football tradition dates to 1898.
