No problem — leave the stats to us and save your time for your team. Smaller football teams face unique challenges. Fewer coaches and players means everyone has to do more. From athletes having multiple roles to coaches taking on countless responsibilities, it’s inevitable that some things get overlooked. Especially when it comes to data. Many of these teams have too much on their plate to even track basic (much less advanced) stats. We want to help. This season we've launched Assist for 8- and 9-man teams. Submit your games and we'll send back 14 columns of data within 24 hours. Smaller teams and smaller fields won't keep you from having the resources you need to be successful. How It Works All we need for Assist to track 8- and 9-man games is for your Hudl account to accurately reflect an 80-yard field. To double-check, tag a seven-yard gain on the -35 yard line. If it still reflects a 100-yard field, reach out to support and we'll make sure your field size is updated. From there, choose from multiple package options to find the best fit for your team.
