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

“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.”

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."
