Once there was no film. Then for the lucky few came reel to reel film. Then a few more athletes got coverage through VHS and those with good film gained a foothold. Next up the coveted DVD- which cost hundreds to shoot and produce. As more and more film came out more athletes began to get a look. More "special" kids were being discovered through film which made up for time and distance when coaches and recruits were not able to meet up.
Then came HUDL. In the first 2 or 3 years it added 10 times the amount of recruits with film. As the ability of the programming grew and more and more schools adopted the systems and loaded game film it became Ubiquitous. The many many benefits of HUDL are undeniable. Having said that there is one down fall to this proliferation of film. College Coaches and their staffs are BURIED in film. Everyone and their brother is sending in film and it has become not a few but hundreds of submissions per week. So this is the problem now that technology is allowing instant highlights of every athlete.
When everyone is Special- No one is Special-
For 10 years I have helped lead the NW recruits forward and their families. Recently I crossed over 7,000 stories written on top athletes. Along the way I have helped hundreds gain scholarships and worked to learn what works and what colleges want and need to connect with athletes.
Today we are announcing a new protocol that will help. To stand out you have to work harder. You have to have your grades and test scores ready or they big time colleges will not respond. In fact almost none of them will. That is and will forever be #1.
As to film we are recommending that every athlete create a 10 play Super-Highlight. This is the best of the best- offense, defense, special teams. It all works. It does not matter what it is but it has to be your very best!
This is Your 30 Second elevator Pitch- You are selling You! Make this the Closer.
7 Steps to the perfect Football Highlight
- No more then 10 plays
- Offfense, Defense, Special Teams- Any or All
- Just your best!
- Cut it short- so that means a tight film with Snap - Play- Finish. no extra pre snap or post play footage.
- Shorter the Better
- Have your name, year in school, school, Height and Weight, Coaches name and info, and your contact info.
- Post it after you create it- Share it- send it to influencers like me and coaches
Here is my first subject. Junior Anthony Adams at Newberg High School is a top 5 recruit in Oregon for the 2017 Recruiting Class. He sent me his film, which he does often, and it is awesome. There is a lot of it because he is a walking highlight reel. I explained to him the theory I have here and he understood and listened. He has delivered the perfect 10 play film - and you watch it and you will say 'That Kid is a Player".
Yes he is. He will get his College Paid For at this rate. Now 10 plays is still 2:28 seconds. That is probably about the longest you want this to be. His plays take a long time because he is running the entire field in most of them. Most guys wont have that issue.
Have a look - This is tremendous! And create one of your own and send it to us- we will add it to our list of 10 Play Super Highlights and Publish it Here-
