Internet Video Heads to High School Locker Room

Have you heard? Did you get the memo?
If not, I’ll let you in on the news. The next big thing in Internet video is high school sports. Yup, it’s true. Hearst-Argyle recently launched highschoolplaybook.com, dedicated to high school sports, which I’ll check out tomorrow.
And earlier this week, Fox-owned WNYW-TV unveiled myfoxlocker.com, a new high school sports Web site. The site features school-produced and user-generated content about high school sports teams in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
I have about, um, zero interest in high school sports, but I will say this: The site is neat and clean, the videos are easy to find, and the video player on the home page includes a scrolling playlist of the latest videos.
I did test out the link to search for your school. Because, now I will confess, I actually attended high school for two years in Shelton, Conn. And yep, I found one set of results for Shelton High School.
But not, of course, from when I attended. I don’t even think they had video cameras way back then, much less the Internet.
