Video of the Year - high school division
"I’ll be honest, I didn’t know what to expect out of this group going in. I thought there would be a substantial drop-off in quality compared to some of the best college videos out there, and boy was I wrong. They were all fabulous, but I really enjoyed Chaparral’s video - after all, I’m a sucker for anything Friday Night Lights-ish" said Adam Kramer. Brian Floyd added, "That was professional. Cool motivation video for a rivalry game that could get anyone pumped up. Strong work with the message all around."
Each of the 6 finalists for Video of the Year (high school division) were excellent; but in the end, our panel of judges selected Chaparral High School (AZ) - Saguaro 2012 Motivational as the winner. Every high school team should prepare a similar video for their players and ask them to watch it every day this Summer. Your players will do everything in their power to win that game. Emotional, effective and well produced video here created by running backs / special teams coordinator & video coordinator Bryan Chesin.
Chaparral (AZ) - Saguaro 2012 Motivational
The six finalists were evaluated by our panel consisting of Sports Illustrated senior writer Andy Staples, Bleacher Report lead college football writer Adam Kramer, Smart Football editor and author Chris Brown and SB Nation managing editor Brian Floyd. Each of the 6 was an example of the outstanding video work being done these days and choosing one winner was a highly subjective process. Each of the finalists should be proud and it is our hope that coaches & video staffs across the country enjoying watching and learning from some of the best in the business. Keep innovating!
