All John Curtis football games, as well as other sports and school events, will be streamed live starting this fall, thanks to a partnership with iHigh, the nation's largest global youth network.

Selected by iHigh as one of the 25 premiere prep sports programs in the nation to participate,   Curtis will have their games featured weekly on the website iHigh.com/johncurtis and are expected to attract more than one million hits the first year, according to iHigh.com's David Bannister.

Curtis will have its own school app that can be downloaded to any smartphone, tablet or handheld device. Former Curtis standouts Danny Wimprine and Kevin Fayard will broadcast the football games.

WGNO-TV, the ABC affiliate in New Orleans, is also a partner in the arrangement.

J.T. Curtis enters the season with a record of 492-54-6 and would become only the second high school coach in the U.S. to reach the 500-win plateau.

"Curtis is one of 10 teams at the forefront of this program initially, and it will expand to 25 teams nationally," Bannister added. "We're talking to schools in Sports Illustrated's top 25 (prep football programs) in the U.S."

Programs like Hoover {Ala.) , Valdosta (Ga.), St Thomas Aquinas (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.), Byrnes (Duncan, S.C.),, St Xavier (Cincinnati, Oh), Westminster, Moeller (Cincinnati, Oh.), South Panola (Miss.), Katy (Tex.), Good Counsel (Olney, Md.) are some of the elite programs that comprise the first 10.
