Lone Star Gridiron, “The National High School Football Show of Texas,” is moving to San Marcos from Houston as it prepares to expand its statewide coverage to a number of high school sports with a new site,

The Internet-based audio program has covered high school football for the past four years and has become known all over state for their range of coverage. During the football season, LSG does a midweek show that reviews the games just played and looks ahead to that weekend’s top matches. In addition, each weekend, broadcast crews travel the state to take in the sounds live from the best games.

“The move accomplishes a few goals for the company. San Marcos is centrally located, which makes traveling the state easier. Working with Texas State University communications students should prove to be a great fit. And I just love the area. I’ve spent more than enough time in the big city. San Marcos reminds me a lot of growing up in the country outside of Victoria,” said Lone Star Gridiron chief executive officer Chris Doelle, who will also oversee San Marcos CISD and Texas State University sports coverage for as sports editor.

Newstreamz Managing Editor Brad Rollins said, “Chris Doelle has been on the cutting-edge of New Media throughout his career and an early adapter to video, Podcasting and broadcast technologies. That is in addition to Chris and his team’s growing following among Texas sports enthusiasts and their plans for an ambitious expansion. They are part of the creative class that every progressive community is trying to attract and are leaving Houston with a wealth of knowledge and experience.”

Lone Star Gridiron will also be launching a new website early in 2008, which will expand their coverage to include all high school sports.
