ETC… for Wednesday, September 16th

The Journal has received questions on upcoming broadcasts of local high school sports, so we will try to answer them.  Yes, Journal Sports will provide live video streaming of both Riverdale Academy and Red River High football games.  Yes, both can be streamed at the same time, from wherever the teams are playing, but it will require two devices to watch both at once.  How do I get the games?  Go to Red River Parish Journal on Facebook and search for videos.  The live stream should be up about 15 minutes before kickoff.  And all games will be archived for viewing later.

The Journal offers text message alerts for all high school athletic events.  You may specify Red River, Riverdale or both.  To get the alerts, go to the Journal’s menu bar and click on “Join Text Club” and fill out the form.  If you are not a subscriber to our email service, we’ll include that for free.  The Journal does not spam you or sell your information.  It’s just for the stated purpose.
