Better Stats in Less Time: Coach Rob Brost Talks Hudl Assist

Time is our most valu­able com­mod­i­ty — we hear this a lot. For coach­es specif­i­cal­ly, there are just not enough hours in the day. We’ve rec­og­nized this as a chal­lenge for a lot of coaches.

We sat down with Coach Rob Brost, head coach of Bolingbrook High School in Illinois to talk about how Hudl Assist helped him and his staff get reac­quaint­ed with some of that lost time.

Tell us about the over­all experience.

Hudl Assist takes Hudl to the next lev­el. It saves us hours of time because the film is bro­ken down for us, and the advanced ana­lyt­ics pro­vid­ed give us anoth­er tool to eval­u­ate not only our team as a whole, but also indi­vid­ual play­ers. It makes it eas­i­er for me as a head coach to meet with my guys indi­vid­u­al­ly. As we move through­out the sea­son, we’re mov­ing and shak­ing and don’t have a lot of time. Hudl Assist gives us back a lot of that time.”

You men­tioned Hudl Assist saves you time. Can you give specifics?

It would take two to three hours to find all of an athlete’s missed shots, or to watch all of the offen­sive rebounds we gave up per game — with Hudl Assist, it’s one click to watch that for a whole game.”

Were you hap­py with the stats?

We found the stats and ana­lyt­ics to be very accu­rate. We keep our own stats as well and a cou­ple of times we went back and found that Hudl was more accu­rate than the guys sit­ting at the games tak­ing stats.”

Hudl was more accu­rate than the guys tak­ing stats at the game.

Have you noticed a dif­fer­ence in the way your ath­letes use Hudl?

80 – 90% of our guys do film­work on their own. Now, before they even come in to meet with me, they’ve already watched what I would have shown them. Before, we just watched film to look for what they want­ed to see, rather than spe­cif­ic things for each play­er to work on.”

What’s the feed­back from your staff?

Hudl is much more user-friend­ly. The ana­lyt­ics are much more use­ful, we use the val­ue points sys­tem for ana­lyt­ics quite a bit. Hudl Assist has real­ly been invalu­able for us – I don’t want to go back to using any­thing else. I want to keep using Assist from here on out.”
