The Geneva Panther Sports Network started August 2017 when head football coach and Geneva High School Athletic Director Les Sanders finally relented to Mr. Brad Bynum’s offer to sponsor the equipment for Geneva High School to begin live streaming the sporting events. Two years later PSN has turned into something more than anyone could have predicted. We now stream Varsity and Junior Varsity Football, Volleyball, Baseball, Softball, Athletic Banquets, Academic ceremonies, Graduation, Homecoming Assemblies, and the list goes on and on. In the two years since its inception, the Panther Sports Network is now averaging over 80 sporting events per year, in addition to the non-sporting events we cover.
In our very first season, we were one of three finalists for the Top New Broadcast Program of the NFHS Network! We didn’t win, but just to be one of the three out of over 300 new programs is quite an honor, and one by which we were certainly thrilled and surprised!
In 2018 we were named an NFHS Network “Select” school. According to the NFHS Network website, “Select Schools demonstrate excellent broadcasting skills time and time again, resulting in consistent enjoyable events for the fans.” This same year we also were one of three finalists for “NFHS Network highlight of the year.” We didn’t win, but we feel that to be one out of hundreds of entries was still an accomplishment!
In 2018 there was only one “Elite” NFHS Network school in the entire state of Alabama: Cullman High School. We found out the requirements of being an Elite Broadcasting Program and set out sites on this honor. Thist year, 2019, we were selected as one of only three schools in the state to achieve this position: Hoover High School (7A), Cullman High School (6A), and Geneva High School (3A). The NFHS Network Elite Schools “receive the highest recognition, having excellent broadcasting skills, excelling in promoting their events and generating funds for their schools.”
