You’ve probably heard the phrase “it’s more than a game” when people discuss high school football. At first glance, you might even think it’s a cliché description of one of the most popular sports in America. But there’s a reason you hear this phrase as often as you do: it’s true.
YurView will showcase the must-see storylines this coming season. Over 55 games featuring some of the best teams, players, and matchups will be available this fall on YurView channels around the country and on YurView.com/GameTime.
YurView’s new Play for Life campaign to promote national high school football aims to show how football is more than a game. The series documents stories with raw emotion and honesty, showing how the players, coaches, and communities are affected by high school football.
Some examples of these stories include:

In this episode, one former high school football star tells his story of how is experiences on the field helped prepare him for a career in the military.

If you were to ask her which surprised her more, it would probably be the homecoming queen (‘I was up against two cheerleaders!’). But what does that say about this kicker sensation? That gender doesn’t matter when you’re on the field – if you’ve got the skills to play, you can compete with anyone.
