Video: Check out all the work that goes into creating the official ball of the College Football Playoff

Since it is the eve of the second annual college football playoff, it only seems appropriate that we take a look at one of the key components that makes the game possible - the ball.

Yesterday, Wilson released this video taking you behind the scenes of their factory in Ada, Ohio where they make the balls for the playoff teams.

I've already watched it twice, and it's both mesmerizing and impressive how it all comes together. From leather ovals, to the worn, taped hands of the workers, to the final balls of beauty that coaches everywhere dedicate their lives to.

Pretty amazing stuff.
