National Signing Day marks the end of an exciting and tough decision process for thousands of young athletes across the country. We were excited to see tons of Hudl athletes signing to colleges all over the nation and would like to give a shout out to the Hudl athletes in the Top 100 on Rivals. We’d love to see any pictures you have from the big day. Feel free to post to our Facebook page.
We all look back fondly at homecoming spirit days in high school—the one week when dress codes and social standards don’t apply, and going to class in your pajamas is perfectly acceptable. In an office that allows for casual-Friday attire every day of the week, a week of spirit days seemed only fitting.
It was a fun week, and Hudlies had fun with their costumes. Here are some of our favorites from last week.
We definitely don’t hide the fact that we love all things Google. Google Reader is no exception. Reader displays content from your favorite blogs and sites as it’s posted, eliminating the need to jump from one site to the next.
Here are some tips for finding your way to more efficient web browsing:
Boise State and TCU. Both of these teams are very successful non-BCS teams. Going into this game, Boise had a 65-game home-winning streak, they hadn’t lost in Boise in more than 13 years when I rolled into town. As a fan, I was not only excited to see the blue turf field, but also to see the creative offenses that both teams employ. From a coaching perspective, I focused on two aspects of their program.
The recruiting process can seem cryptic to some. Parents with athletes looking to play at the next level can find the task of getting video to recruiters, as well as making sure they’re meeting all of the NCAA’s requirements can be quite daunting. Here are four things coaches, parents, and athletes should know about the recruiting process:
We all know that coaching a sport isn’t an easy thing to do. We also know that running a sport involves some cash money. Since it doesn’t grow on trees, schools have to get creative to raise money. Teams all across the nation are selling discount cards, having hog roasts, and holding lift-a-tons to raise money. By the time your team has to pay for new equipment—jerseys, weights, and transportation—the last thing you want to do is spend any more money on video editing software. Fundraising can be very time consuming for a team and adds another stressor to your job. We heard the pain points and now we want to help!
One of the things we hear often is “it sounds like you guys have a fun place to work!” And they’re right. We can’t share the awesome environment we’ve created with all of our coaches in person, but thanks to Brett, Kyle, Andy, and David you can get a pretty good feel of the Hudl offices.
