High school football enthusiasts have a program available at Palomar college dedicated to covering and reporting the highlights of high school football in North San Diego County.
Prep Sports Live (PSL) is a live television sports broadcast which airs on television every Tuesday night. According to their website, PSL travels around North San Diego County to bring students and viewers highlights of games played on Friday nights at local high schools.
PSL is offered as a course at Palomar under the Media Studies Department in the Radio and Television Category. The specific title of the course is DBA 240B.
“Prep Sports Live is a unique class related to the real world,” Department Chair Pat Hahn said.
PSL has won several Emmy awards and has produced students who have won Emmy awards as well.
Rebecca Peters is a Palomar student and PSL’s current sports director. She just won her first Emmy award this past summer. “PSL is very goal-oriented to everyone that’s here. They’re not just here to take a class that’s going to move them to the next level of college. This is to help the students prepare for a career,” she said.
According to PSL Executive Producer and Program Instructor Jim Zrake, “Prep Sports Live gives the students a real hands-on opportunity to produce a live half-hour weekly television show for thirteen weeks.”
PSL airs on Time Warner channel 16 and AT&T; channel 99 every Tuesday from 6:00-6:30 P.M. For more information about PSL, visit the website at www.prepsportslivesd.com. For more information about the course, visit www.palomar.edu/mediastudies.
