­ DSC_0018Fort Bragg soldiers, currently deployed, will be able to watch their sons play in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 4-AA football championship game. The Butler vs. Jack Britt 4AA title game will be streamed live onNews14.com so that soldiers can access the game from overseas. The game
will also be televised live by Time Warner Cable on News 14 Carolina.
Kickoff is at 7:30 pm on Saturday.
³Time Warner Cable and News 14 Carolina want to do everything we can to
support our troops so courageously protecting our country,² says Alan Mason,
vice president and general manager, News 14 Carolina. ³We understand how
hard it is for parents to be away from their children, especially during the
holidays and other special events. It is our hope that by streaming this
game live on News14.com, soldiers can experience the play by play action as
if they were able to cheer on their sons from the sidelines.²
“North Carolina has a highly concentrated military presence and to
provide the opportunity for men and women serving overseas to watch their
sons play in this championship game is a tremendous opportunity and service
provided by Time Warner Cable,² says Karen DeHart, assistant executive
director, North Carolina High School Athletic Association. ³The NCHSAA is
proud to be affiliated with Time Warner Cable and to be a part of bringing
the Britt vs. Butler game to North Carolina-based troops bravely serving our
nation.”
