On Friday, October 27th, 2017 crowds flocked to the Barrington High School Stadium.
People poured into the stadium not just to see the undefeated 10-0 BHS Bronco Varsity Football Team host the first game of the IHSA Playoffs against Glenbrook South, many came to see the unveiling of the new BHS-TV custom-built media van!
Red velvet-roped stanchions kept the crowd back as the cover was lifted and the anticipated vehicle made its first public appearance. The slick black van, complete with custom skinning on the outside, features a prominent BHS-TV logo. A great moving billboard for the popular club at Barrington High School.
Championed by fundraising by the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation, the new vehicle will allow BHS-TV to live stream in HD from different schools, community and sporting events on the BHS-TV YouTube Channel. Just like the major television networks, student reporters will be able to do live coverage and interviews from anywhere!
Major sponsors from the community include:
- Beyer/Chung Family
- Barrington Bank and Trust
- Merrill Lynch-The Thorndyke Sheppard Group
- Frederica Smith Pederson
The van was fully operational for the IHSA playoff game where Barrington easily defeated Glenbrook South with a final score of 48 to 3. BHS Football fans will be able to follow the rest of the playoff games with live coverage from the van and BHS-TV crew again this Friday from the Barrington High School Stadium and then hopefully on the road to state finals!
