Maybe you’ve seen it, maybe you haven’t, but Jack Lenihan’s Recruitment Showcase has taken over as the most viewed Hudl highlight of all time. With more than 830,000 views, his link has been pasted into articles from Bleacher Report, Fox Sports and Men’s Health, and with a final slide requesting only D-I offers, you can bet he’s received a few emails.
The intense, electrifying months of practicing in bad weather, staying up late to study film, and playing under Friday night lights are coming to a close. And, as always, we’re all sad to see it end. But you don’t have to part ways with this season empty-handed! With banquets and post-season celebrations around the corner, what better way to wind down than by creating a killer banquet reel?
As the high school football season winds down for teams across the country, we see programs closing out the year by creating banquet reels and honoring the seniors who’ve taken their final Friday night snaps. But just as one season ends, another begins. Ready or not, the offseason is here and it’s the perfect time to prepare – not just for next season, but every day after that.
More and more coaches are discovering our new basketball interface and we want to make sure they’re well-equipped to dominate the hardwood. We’re pretty excited to see everyone grow and learn with the new product, but while we may be familiar with the new tools, you’re not sure what to expect, and that’s okay. We’ve thrown together a few tips and tricks to keep in your coaching arsenal for seasons to come.
As an assistant volleyball coach at Lincoln Lutheran High School and a head coach for Nebraska ONE 17s, using Hudl is an easy option, and not just because I work here. Being familiar with the software is an obvious reason I love using Hudl, but when the other coaches and athletes become familiar and build their own routines around video, that’s what gets me most excited.
Football season may be wrapping up, but highlights are a year-round thing. That’s why we’re putting together the Top Plays of 2014. It’s like our weekly Top 5, but better. It’s a rundown of the biggest hits, best runs, and most OMG moments of the season! The thing is, we can’t find these plays without your help.
Saying goodbye to October is bittersweet for us here in Coach Support. Not only is the Halloween candy all gone, but fall sports went with it. The sweet part for us is the chance to switch gears in preparation for winter sports. In fact, we’re so excited to start this season off right, we’re calling all of our basketball coaches to answer any and all questions in advance – bonus points for those wanting tips on our new breakdown tools.
We spent seven weeks traveling all over the country to give basketball coaches a first-hand look at the new workflow. We hoped they would like what we had in store for the upcoming season, but never expected the level of excitement we saw at all 22 Hudl Up Tour stops. A lot of coaches sat and waited for the “but” – there wasn’t one. With our new tools, you can upload and tag full games with team and individual stats in under an hour, period.
Time flies when you’re having fun, and there’s nothing better than high school football on a crisp Friday night in the fall. At least, that’s the way we see it. But as regular seasons across the country start winding down, it’s worth taking a minute to stop and savor those special moments between every kickoff and victory formation. The good news is, Hudl’s here to help you do just that.
As the leaves change, so does life in Support. September started out hot and slowly tapered off as coaches became Hudl pros once again. With football season in full swing, they’ve figured out all the new features and worked their magic with the old. As things continue to wind down, we want to touch on what goes on behind the scenes when you reach out for help throughout the season.
