  1. SETXSPORTS.COM is looking to add some broadcasters this fall. We are looking to add to the number of teams we do, but we can't do that without people behind the microphone. You can broadcast your favorite team, stay cool or warm or dry in the press box so you will always have one of the best seats in the house. If you might be interested please contact me Scott Loar at [email protected]
  2. Still looking for potential broadcasters, please reach out and contact me Scott Loar at [email protected]!
  3. It's hard to believe but the high school football season is about 5 months away. That fact is not lost on SETXSports.com! We are already making preparations for broadcasting games next season and that is where some of you might come into the picture. Ask yourself a few questions... 1. Do you love high school sports in general and specifically high school football? 2. Are you someone who is always in the stands supporting "MY" team or just going to games because you love the game? 3. Would you like to have an excuse to be at every single game your team plays in this coming season? If you answered yes to those questions then you just might be someone we would like to talk to! We are set for Silsbee, Newton, Woodville and West Sabine but we would be interested in increasing the number of teams and games that are broadcast on SETXSports.com and you could help us do just that. If you have ever or never done any kind of broadcasting we can train you to be the voice of your team on SETXSports.com. We have some who do games all by their selves and others that recruit a team, we leave that up to you! We need to replace Mike Sanchez who is stepping away into retirement. He did East Chambers last year. We would love to go back and broadcast Kirbyville and literally any area school and even into new territory north of Houston we would love to talk to you. If you are interested please email me with your name and phone number and the best time to talk to you. The pay is not always great and it depends on getting advertising sponsors for the broadcasts, but you almost always get to be in a press box. that means you get air conditioning when its hot, a heater when its cold and a dry place when its raining. Believe me that is worth plenty. So contact me and lets talk about you becoming the voice of your school's team! Scott Loar SETXSports.com Sales Manager and Broadcaster for the last 10 years [email protected]
  4. Come on people, we need your help! get us the football schedule for your team or how we can make contact to get the schedule. Thanks
  5. Well redistricting is done and so are schedules for schools. Some schools have posted their schedules but SETX needs all of them. Its a big job keeping up with all things high school football in Southeast Texas and with our beloved WOSGrad no longer here to keep everything straight we need all the time we can get to get things ready for 2022. We are also looking to finalize plans for a Broadcaster Boot Camp in the early summer to see if any of you would like to become the broadcast voice of a team. We have lost some people and we are also looking to expand the teams that we cover, so keep on the lookout for further details and please help us get the schedules ASAP!
  6. Just before school started back in August SETXSports lost the heart and soul of our online presence. Todd Broussard kept the content fresh and flowing on the website. Todd passed away due to complications from COVID. Todd was a fighter having overcome a heart transplant several years ago and he loved what he did for SETXSports. We are trying to keep up with everything, but we discover every day something else Todd did that we never knew about. For 16 years SETXSports.com has been the only place where you could get information about all sports in Southeast Texas, not just football. The help we need is people posting scores. We are working to get things like standings and records updated, but that takes scores. We have very few people that cant be everywhere all the time so we coaches and parents to send in the scores so we have data to work with. Please know that we value each and every high school athlete, guys and girls! We just need parents letting us know about the scores. Thanks Scott Loar SETXSports.com
  7. I just spoke to John Seybold the Jasper Superintendent. The number of kids being sent home with fever was beginning to rise. Possibly as many as 70 students on Thursday alone and they are getting additional reports this morning. Seybold consulted with County Judge Mark Allen, the Health Department and local physicians before making this decision. It was done to give the district 10 days to be closed for cleaning and disinfecting. But due to the Labor Day holiday the district will only loose 5 instructional days. This is a matter of public health and safety, no more and no less. After the loss of our site administrator to this virus we take it very seriously here at SETXSPORTS.COM and we will respect any schools decision regarding these types of decisions. It is a non-district game and that is all it was between Jasper and Silsbee. Let's all keep things in perspective when we post.
  8. Be sure to tune in tonight for SETXSPORTS.COM first football broadcast of the season. Game being played in Jasper so if you don't want to make the drive then tune in for all the action. Scott Loar will have the call tonight.
  9. A question for any West Orange Stark folks what would you think about approaching the powers that be with the idea of naming the broadcast booth in the WOS press box after Todd? Just a thought to remember Todd at the school he loved.
  10. SETXSPORTS.COM lost one of is founding members and the guy that so often kept all the things straight on the website and our broadcasts. He was in contact with coaches getting permission for our broadcasts. He kept the scoreboard updated on Friday nights. He did the previews that brought people to the website every summer getting us ready for the start of football. I am asking for a special favor from all the area schools for this weeks games. I am asking if the following could be read by PA announcers. High school sports in Southeast Texas lost a great friend last Saturday. Todd Broussard with SETXSPORTS.COM who anyone on the website knew as WOSgrad. Lost his battle with COVID-19. Todd was such an avid fan and stanch supporter of high school athletics and his presence and support will be missed in the coverage of the games that he loved with all his heart.
  11. When I started as just a member on SETXSPORTS.COM my boys were both playing football and basketball for Evadale. I was the PA announcer as well, so I signed on as Rebel Yeller. I moved to the press box at Kirbyville after my wife started teaching there. After one season I responded to an invite to do the Wildcats play by play from SETXSPORTS.COM. it was then that I began to message and talk to Todd. He has assisted me and everyone else on the website and the broadcasts. Todd and I did an entire day on air from the Evadale basketball tournament in 2019 as he was beginning to consider doing games himself. We did a Jasper game last season as well. Todd did so much and he will be missed not just because of what he did for the website , but as a great guy and a true friend. We all lost a special guy today and the impact of his loss will be felt for a long time. To Todd's wife and family our thoughts and prayers are with you. And to Todd, I hope that they have high school sports in heaven, because we know how much the athletes and the schools of South East, Texas.
  12. We at SETXSports.com have been toying with the idea of a weekly podcast for high school football. On Tuesday nights 6 to 7:30 PM. The show would feature interviews with coaches, a look back at games played the last week and previews and predictions on games later in the week. We will have our broadcasters available and we will even have time for texted questions. We feel that this could be an enhanced version of our forums. We would need some sponsors to help us get it on the air, but we want to know what you all think and would it be something that you would support?
  13. Hey everybody, Everyone is happy to have the 2020-2021 school year in the rear view mirror. SETXSPORTS.COM did our part last year continuing to broadcast games even with limited sponsors assisting us pay the bills. That was ok and we were happy to bring the games home to everyone. But now is the time to get on board for the 2021-2022 school year and it kicks off with football the last week in August. So from now to July 15th we have our best package prices available and we are looking for old and new sponsors to join our team. You can email [email protected] to request information and we will get it right out to you. THANKS
