Yoemen feature to air on NFL Network

Stephen Palgon and his crew film a segment for the NFL Network feature on the Cameron Yoemen in November.

The segment featuring the Cameron Yoemen and the community that was shot in November is set to air on the NFL Network between 1:30 and 1:40 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5.

Producer Stephen Palgon said there will be a longer version online at some point this week, but he doesn’t now when yet.

Palgon and his crew were in Cameron Monday, Nov. 28, until Friday, Dec. 2, to capture footage for their special feature talking to community members and following the Yoemen on their journey through the State Playoffs.

This year’s Super Bowl will be played at NRG Stadium in Houston, so that is how the network decided it would be best to feature a team from Texas.  

“Since the Super Bowl is in Houston, we wanted to celebrate Texas high school football in the sense that what is going on in Houston sort of comes from the world of what happens here on Friday night,” said Palgon. 

Palgon - owner of Star Crossed Pictures - and his camera crew will be around all week preparing footage.  The company has worked with ESPN, NFL Network, NHL Productions, HBO, CBS, Pac-12 Network, USA, VH1, Oxygen, Madison Square Garden Network, Mindshare Entertainment, Lever, Sprint, American Family Insurance and many others.

“The core of what we’re talking about is community,” stated Palgon.  “Whether you are here on Friday nights or you are a fan of the team that is playing in the Super Bowl, you’re part of a community.  You’re part of a generation.”

The piece will feature past and present players and coaches, in addition to other characters throughout the community.
