Due to COVID-related restrictions on crowd sizes, high schools are either eliminating or severely restricting spectators at games for the 2020-2021 school year, but our Naz Broadcast has the Roadrunners covered. For the Spring Season, our broadcast team will be covering all soccer, volleyball and football home games, and all for free. Simply subscribe to and you won’t miss a minute.
