One of the biggest games of the weekend in the state of Texas will be Allen vs McKinney. Interestingly, this is a Thursday night game (October 20th) which will make it much harder for parents, students and fans to travel to McKinney’s Ron Poe Stadium. Although it is only about a 10 or 15 minute drive, it will still be the case that a few freshman and sophomores will not be able to find a ride. For this reason, expect to see many looking for the Allen vs McKinney radio broadcast live streaming online or on an iPhone or smartphone.
In 2016, most high school students are on social media. They get their score updates and news via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat. Snapchat has recently offered high school football score filters for specific schools. While we are not certain if Allen or McKinney has this option, we are certain many will get their score updates throughout the night via Snapchat and Twitter. If you know of the Allen or McKinney official football Snapchat account comment with the name below.
When looking for a live radio or audio broadcast, download the TuneIn radio app. This app is free and available on iPhone and Android. The app allows you to search for any radio station in the United States. There are also sections to look for sports or local stations to help you find exactly what you are looking for. If you know of the local radio stations that air the games every single week, you should be able to find it on TuneIn or the radio station likely has a website that offers live streaming options through a browser.
If you are seeking TV or live video options you may find this more difficult to discover. That said, Periscope is a great way for fans to broadcast the game from the student section or the stands. If you know someone that is a diehard fan, you may want to ask them if they are going to Periscope the game before they head over to McKinney.
This is sure to be quite the shootout on Thursday night. Who do you think will win? If you cannot find a radio broadcast feel free to comment below and we will do our best to help you find one.
