As the weather cools and football season starts, the recruiting process for high school seniors heats up. As a former college football coach, I can tell you that the biggest thing a coach wants to see is your highlight video. Your major selling point? It's not your stats, press coverage or recommendations from biased high school coaches. It's how you move and play the game.
When producing a highlight video, keep these basic tips in mind:
