Trinity High School announced its 2018 varsity football schedule earlier this year that will feature top-caliber competition from Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio and will start the season as back-to-back Class 6-A state champs and currently hold a 30-game winning streak. 

Trinity has updated that schedule with the recent news that ESPN will broadcast the season opener with Warren Central (Ind.) on Friday, Aug. 24, at Marshall Stadium.

Warren Central finished the 2017 season ranked No. 2 in Indiana, having gone toe-to-toe with Trinity earlier in the season in Indianapolis before falling to the Shamrocks 42-41.

“We are honored to once again welcome ESPN to the Trinity campus for high school football action,” Trinity athletic director Rob Saxton said. “In deciding on a return to Trinity for a varsity football contest, ESPN referenced the success with their last broadcast at Trinity in 2013, along with recognition of the long-standing excellence of both the Trinity and Warren Central football programs. This game will be a part of the opening weekend of ESPN high school football broadcasts for 2018. Our coaches, student-athletes, school community and alumni look forward to showing Trinity to a world-wide ESPN audience.”

Trinity last hosted a game on ESPN five years ago.
