ESPNU to Show Skyline vs. Oaks Christian High School Game

ESPNU to Show Skyline vs. Oaks Christian High School Game

It might seem crazy to some, but ESPN will broadcast 21 high school football games live on their family of networks this fall.

Skyline QB Jake Heaps is one of the top prep QB's in the country.

This will come as no surprise to hardcore college football fans, however, as nowadays almost as much attention is paid to future college stars as current ones. That is exactly what makes the match-up of Skyline (Sammamish, WA) vs. Oaks Christian (Westlake Village, CA) so intriguing to local football fans. Skyline features star quarterback Jake Heaps, who is considered one of the top prep players in the country and will play for BYU next season, while Oaks Christian is quarterbacked by Nick Montana, a highly touted high school player himself who also happens to be the son of NFL legend Joe Montana. Montana has committed to play for the University of Washington next season.

While the focus may be on the two quarterbacks, there are several other top college prospects on both teams, which are ranked nationally in preseason high school polls. Oaks Christian is rated as high as number six in the country, while Skyline checks in as high as number nine. Oaks Christian is considered by many as the best high school team in the West and features five seniors who will play D-1 football next year in addition to Montana, including running back Malcolm Jones, who hasn’t made his college choice and offensive lineman Erik Kohler, who will join Montana at UW. Skyline’s roster also includes junior receiver Kasen Williams, the son of former Washington Husky receiver Aaron Williams, who figures to be one of the most sought after prospects in the state next season.

Husky fans and others hoping to see the game locally may have some trouble, however.

Tickets for the game at Skyline went on sale to the public Tuesday, but there were only to be 800 tickets available. The game is being shown on ESPNU, which is not yet available to Comcast customers in the Seattle area. It was believed that ESPNU would be available in time for college football season when it was announced that the channel would be added to the Comcast line-up, but its being added in a “rolling launch” and won’t be in Seattle until around November.
