Creating a Highlight Video

Recruiting today has a very different look compared to a decade or two ago. During that time, athletes would begin getting serious about the recruiting process during their junior year in high school and narrow down their official visits prior to signing day in November of the following fall. Correspondence was done by snail mail and observing tournaments that actually declared a winner. Yes, they would play in double elimination tournaments and would learn what it takes to crawl out of the loser’s bracket and fight back to play on the final day of the tournament.

In today's world of communication with email and the internet, we receive many highlight video's to show the athletes skills. I thought it might be helpful to give you some guidelines when trying to catch the eye of a college coach through video.


Until next month,
Coach Candrea
