“We are very excited about our partnership with The Identity Tampa Bay and the NFHS Network which will allow the community to stream Pinellas high school sports on their personal devices from anywhere,” said Al Bennett, the district’s Athletics Director. “Moreover, it will allow us to promote our Pinellas County teams and athletes to a much wider audience.”
