Because the NFL Draft kicks off today, we wanted to share a very special #TBT mashup featuring this year’s top prospects. Before Sundays were ever within reach, these athletes were dominating under Friday night lights, climbing the ranks to prove they were ready for a much bigger stage.
Kids today have it pretty easy. With smartphones as the norm, anyone can access the Internet anytime, anywhere. It’s made studying so simple, it’s practically second nature. A few taps of the touchscreen and boom – all the info they need to learn a little and improve a lot is available in a matter of seconds. Think I’m talking schoolwork? Think again.
Finally, we wrap up our review of the 2015 high school basketball state champions with a visit to the West Coast. Every other region so far has given us some astounding buzzer-beaters, true underdog stories, and powerhouse schools that can’t be beat. Serving as the grand finale, it’s only right that the west include a little of everything.
The goal of every state champion blog series is to show a little love to the teams who straight-up dominated another season with Hudl. Squads from the Northeast, Midwest and Southwest have all felt it over the past week. Now, it’s time to wind down the countdown with a look at our 2015 basketball state champs out of the Southwest.
Every January through March, as Hudlies bounce from one clinic to the next, we often hear an array of feature requests from the thousands of coaches we interact with. In terms of how the requests were presented, this year was no different. What was different was the way one idea began to take over. It was everywhere we went, coming from the mouth of every coach we saw.
As we hit the halfway point in calling out Hudl state champs, now seems like a great time to cover the ‘why’. Why dig through every state tournament to pluck all Hudl users from the list of champions? Why spell them all out – boys and girls, every last class – in a series of blogs? And why the heck is everything linked? Nutshell: We’re too darn proud not to.
It’s time to talk about our 2015 champions of the Midwest. We tried getting a headcount of every matchup with its own exciting finish, but the total was a little higher than we expected. That’s not a bad thing! But when it comes to recaps, we prefer to keep things brief, so we narrowed it down to a few favorites.
The season may be over, but that doesn’t mean all hype has to wind down with it. There are some pretty awesome athletes on Hudl, and the opportunity to show off that talent shouldn’t be limited to a certain timeframe. It’s why we created a mashup of all basketball highlights pulling in a crazy number of views in March.
Every season, basketball teams get fired up with one huge goal in mind: Dominate the playoffs. This year, we saw some enviable matchups in every corner of the country. From last minute buzzer-beaters to underdogs taking the crown, it was anything but uneventful. Teams showed talent and composure to top our lists and ring in 2015.
In the days leading up to the 2015 Nebraska boys’ basketball state tournament, there was quite a bit of buzz surrounding the team from Winnebago. The bracket was full of Class C-1 powerhouses, and Winnebago hadn’t won a state tournament game since 1941, but they had one loss on the season and, despite hailing from a town of 800, an excess of senior leadership.
