Kings Point, NY – Tomorrow’s football game against Maritime will mark the first broadcast on the all-new USMMA Sports Network, dedicated to covering Merchant Marine Academy Athletics. The remainder of home football games for the 2012 season will feature audio broadcasts as well as an interactive live blog. The USMMA Sports Network will be powered by Stretch Internet’s Game Central portal, which can be found at http://client.stretchinternet.com/client/usmma.portal
“We are very excited to be kicking-off this new chapter of Mariner Athletics at our first home game of the 2012 football season,” said Director of Athletic Communications Shaun Ihasz. “We will look to expanding the coverage of the USMMA Sports Network to all of our sports as well as video broadcasts in the near future.”
A complete schedule for the 2012-13 season will be released in the coming weeks. Jaden Daly, who was behind the microphone for several Mariner football games last season, will serve as the play-by-play voice of USMMA football in 2012 and will have the honor of the first broadcast on the USMMA Sports Network.
