The best high school football players dream of playing in the National Football League.
If the next best thing is playing on the NFL Network, then some high school stars will be getting their wish this month.
NFL Network will be airing the Bayou Bowl on June 9 and the Big 33 Football Classic on June 16.
The Big 33 Football Classic has been described as the Super Bowl of high school football. Entering its 50th season, the game features all-stars from Pennsylvania taking on the best players from Ohio. The game is played at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pa.
A former Big 33 all-star has played in every Super Bowl. Current NFL players who played in the game include Colts receiver Marvin Harrison, Chiefs defensive back Ty Law and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterbacks Jim Kelly, Dan Marino and Joe Montana also have appeared.
The Bayou Bowl pits the top high school seniors in Texas against their rivals from Louisiana. The rivalry is in its fifth year and this year’s game will be played at Stallworth Stadium in Baytown, Texas.
“Since its inception, NFL Network has showcased football at all levels,” said NFL Network VP of Programming Charles Coplin. “The addition of the Bayou Bowl and Big 33 Football Classic to our regular-season NFL games and college bowl games continues to broaden our coverage of everything football.”
