Recap: Analysis Feature Roundtable

We gath­ered top high school foot­ball minds to talk about the new fea­ture that is super­charg­ing the way coach­es scout.

On Aug. 26, we held a live round­table for near­ly 150 coach­es to walk through our new analy­sis beta fea­ture. With the help of a dec­o­rat­ed pan­el, led by Chris Coach Vass” Vasseur, we explained how the fea­ture works and cov­ered best practices.

Intro: Our Story and How You Can Get Started

Nate Patterson

Patterson, one of the lead archi­tects of this fea­ture, talks about how we came up with the idea and the best ways to start using it.

How Coach Vass Changed his Workflow

Coach Vass shows how much time he’s sav­ing, how easy it is to make playlists, and how the small­est details add up to enhance your analy­sis expe­ri­ence. All these tiny things, when you put it all togeth­er, the time I saved was fan­tas­tic,” he says.

Whittling It All Down

Jeremy Fisher
Beechwood High School
Fort Mitchell, Ky.

Fisher, a finance techie by day and defen­sive coach by night, gave us a peek at his elab­o­rate sys­tem of foot­ball data track­ing. Then he showed us how he uses it all in the analy­sis feature.

What the Efficiency Column Reveals

Adam Donnelly
Lake Mary High School
Lake Mary, Fla.

Donnelly wasn’t hap­py with what the effi­cien­cy num­bers told him about his team’s third-down per­for­mance. He concluded:

  • They were liv­ing and dying by the big play.
  • They weren’t putting them­selves in great dis­tance situations.
  • He need­ed to reeval­u­ate his own playcalling.

If you don’t think I’ve talked about that at every work­out since then,” he said. This is awful. I was embar­rassed to look it up. But I was glad to have that information.”

Understanding Value of Tendencies by Quarter

Freezy Smalls
Dallas, Texas

Smalls, an alpha tester for the analy­sis fea­ture, didn’t always con­sid­er look­ing at ten­den­cy data by quar­ter before this fea­ture. Now he’s seen the light.

Vass shares and explains his ulti­mate scout­ing check­list for get­ting the most out of this new tool.

Q&A

Coach Vass, Adam Donnelly, Freezy Smalls, Jeremy Fisher

When do you stop track­ing data in a blowout? What’s the best place for a new coach to start? The pan­el answered a few ques­tions from the audience.
