I spent most of the past fall working nearly full-time on high school football. We broadcast three live games in the fall, and along with them we published several dozen video features on the players and coaches. I shot and edited this piece in one afternoon and evening at the end of the regular season and just before the start of the playoffs.Read more "Freshman kicker comes through twice"
I spent Wednesday afternoon at UConn’s football complex for their Pro Day. I can’t imagine the pressure these guys must be under, having one or two chances to perform a physical task that is being recorded by representatives from NFL teams. If that’s not enough, the scouts and coaches get to measure players’ bodies and […]Read more "Zach Hurd at UConn’s Pro Day"
In an attempt to expand our popular high school football coverage, I’m going to try to produce two videos each week instead of one. We’ll still do the weekly “game of the week,” adding a mid-week feature. The feature will probably be on a player who we saw in the weekend’s game. This week, I […]Read more "High School Football Opening Day – New London vs. Montville"
I heard about the Coast Guard Academy’s punter/goalie Will Leffler last year when my colleague Mike DiMauro wrote a column about him. I was determined not to miss this opportunity this year, so I had it on my to do list all summer. Turns out there was only one Saturday where soccer and football both […]Read more "Coast Guard’s Will Leffler: Two Sports, One Day"
High school football is always big for us in the fall. This year, as a preview to our weekly game coverage, I put together preview videos for some of the more prominent teams in the area. I started out on a Friday night at Montville, where I was actually able to get some action during […]Read more "High School Football Previews"
It’s always fun to look back at the football season and collect the top plays of the year. In addition to picking our top ten plays, we ask our web audience to vote for their favorite play. I suspect that the voting ends up being less of a scientific poll and more of a contest […]Read more "Top 10 High School Football Plays of 2009, and some more sports coverage"
This is the first of what will hopefully become a regular high school sports feature profiling athletes that we cover on the weekend. more about "New London Quarterback Josh Clements", posted with vodpodRead more "New London Quarterback Josh Clements"
The thing I love most about shooting football at local high schools and colleges is that you never know where the story is going to come from. Last week at New London High School, the game had reached the fourth quarter, and I was struggling to put together a storyline in my head. The first […]Read more "Two amazing fourth quarter plays to open football season"
Looking for a good reason to save your tapes as an archive? Assistant sports editor Mike DiMauro and I went back through all of our high school football videos this year to assemble a collection of top plays. Our original intention was to out together a top 10, but in order to try to be […]Read more "Top High School Football Plays of 2008"
