The official video footage of last fall's National Junior College Athletic Association's 2009 Football Championship Game between Fort Scott Community College and Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, was captured by PSU broadcasting students. That video was used for a live, online broadcast of the game, which was produced by the NJCAA.
Because of that broadcast, the NJCAA has been honored as a nominee for a 2010 College Sports Media Award. The awards will be announced at the College Sports Video Summit Conference, to be held June 8 in Atlanta. With more than 130 entries, the nominees represent outstanding college sports video productions from campuses across the country, as well as commercial college sports videos produced by major television networks and advertising agencies.
"I am incredibly proud of these students for their work," said Dr. Troy Comeau, director of PSU's broadcasting program. "For their video to receive attention at this level speaks to the quality of student work at Pittsburg State University."
The game took place Dec. 6, 2009, at PSU's Carnie Smith Stadium. Comeau's students, who are responsible for the video component of Pittsburg State's football games (the games are broadcast online, and instant replays are featured on PSU's Jungletron) have won multiple awards in the past for their filming, editing, and production of PSU athletic games.
