How can you infuse the right data with your game plan every day during the season? Coach Vass and three revered offensive minds from around the country — St. John Bosco (Calif.) offensive coordinator Steven Lo, Ben Davis (Ind.) assistant coach Alex Kirby, and NZone Football master coach Keith Fagan — took us through every step of the weekly process, in last week’s live offensive roundtable. Past conversations leaned into X’s and O’s talk. This time, our panelists took the audience inside their minds. We learned how they think and how they approach their biggest challenges with data, from evaluating future opponents to measuring pass protection to filling out your call sheet — and how the data lets you go off-script. As Fagan notes throughout the webinar, “Data drives everything.” Watch the full recap below to see how: Hudl Beta: Updates and High Praise Hudl Product Manager Nate Patterson demonstrates the latest features added to the Hudl Beta.
