If you can't make it to the big game -- just catch it online.
Frederick County Public Schools is partnering up with www.GamedayMagazine.com to stream high school athletic events live on the internet.
The website offers play-by-play audio and video coverage of Sherando, James Wood and Millbrook High School football, basketball and baseball games.
Subscribers can watch and listen from anywhere in the world.
School officials still encourage fans to attend games, but say this is a good alternative if they can't make it.
"It's good for parents who aren't able to get to the game or are maybe traveling when the games take place, and for family members who live out of town. A lot of our student-athletes have relatives who live out of town and can't make it to the game, this gives them the opportunity with just a few clicks of the mouse to see their relative performing on the athletic field," said Steve Edwards, director of communications for Frederick County Public Schools.
The fees range from $9.99 for a 3-day pass to $119.99 for a year-long pass. If you sign up using your school's coupon code, they will get a portion of the proceeds.
The schools' coupon codes are as follows.

- Are you locked into a contract with GameDay? If so, then that should have been a red flag itself.
- How much of the $9.99 10-day and $119.99 annual membership actually goes to the school? It's very clearly stated that if school codes are not entered, then the school will NOT get their portion, whatever that is.
- How much of a local business sponsorship will actually go to the school?
