Ledger will bring you live football coverage

STAFF REPORT

Are you ready for some football?

A new season of gridiron action kicks off Friday night throughout the Palmetto State, giving players, coaches and fans their first opportunity in months to bathe in the glow of the Friday night lights.

Among the many venues around South Carolina sure to be lit prominently is The Reservation in Gaffney as the Indians take on rival Union County in their annual tussle for gridiron supremacy.

In addition to the night serving as a launching point of the 2015 football campaign, it also marks the first of 10 games this season to be webcast by Ledger Live.

Courtesy of The Gaffney Ledger, it is the fifth season in which the Cherokee County newspaper has provided weekly game coverage of Blacksburg and Gaffney football teams.

This season, the publication has linked with online streaming platform Meridix in an effort to bring viewers the best in gridiron action.

In addition, longtime “Voice of the Indians” Fabian Fuentes has come aboard this season to provide play-by-play commentary of the action, with “Moose” Littlejohn serving as cameraman, capturing all action transpiring on the gridiron.

Pre-game activities begin at 7:15 p.m. from The Reservation.

To watch the game, click the “Ledger Live Sports” icon located on the right side of The Gaffney Ledger website (www.gaffneyledger.com). You will then be directed to the Ledger Live game portal, where a “Watch Live” button will be centrally located near the top of the screen.

Clicking the “Watch Live” button will open a window taking viewers to a display screen in which game video should appear after a 30-second advertisement.

Archives are also available via the site. Click on the “Ledger Live Sports” icon on the website and find the Recent Events tab to the right of the screen.
