You Dominate the Gridiron, We’ll Handle the Highlights

Don't worry about creating killer highlights—we'll do it for you.

Football teams have been able to create eye-popping highlight videos on Hudl for years. It’s a simple process that generates buzz for teams and helps athletes get recruited. The only way it could be easier is if we did it for you.

And now we do.

Here are the auto-generated highlights you can expect this season:

  • Game recaps
  • Athlete recaps
  • Athlete end-of-season recaps
  • Athlete commitment videos
  • Best-of-state

Game Recaps for Your Team

What It Is 

A two-minute highlight reel of your team’s best plays from the game. We include team stats, player stats, player photos and play descriptions.

What We Need

Your Video

  • Make sure your video is uploaded as game footage in your library.
  • Save your game in one playlist, not split across two or three playlists.
  • It needs to be a full game with at least 50 clips.
  • Double-check your highlights are set to be public. If they’re private, we’ll still make you a video, but only your team will be able to view it.

Your Data

  • ODK
  • Play Type
  • Result

Extra Data (not required, but will make your video even better)

  • Passer, Rusher, Receiver
  • Gain/Loss

Other Recommendations:

  • Make sure the correct playlist is linked to the Stats page.
  • Add a final score for your game. You can do this on the Stats page, in your schedule or when you upload the video.
  • Make sure your players have profile pictures in Hudl.
  • Add your team logo and school colors to your team page.
  • Include audio—the louder the celebration, the more exciting the play.

Link your opponents in your schedule.

Game Highlights for Your Athletes

Announcement for Athletes Signing With a College

What It Is 

This is a one-minute video announcing where your player has signed to play in college. We make these videos for DI and DII colleges.

What We Need 

You don’t need to do anything! We’ll automatically make this video for your player.

Best Plays from Your State Every Week

What It Is 

A series of six videos every week with the best plays in the state. We make videos for offensive and defensive touchdowns, kickoff returns, punt returns, passes and runs. These videos are based on the yardage gained in the play, spotlighting the longest plays of the week.

What We Need 

Make sure your G/L, play type and result columns are filled out for your big plays and check that your video is public.

All these columns can be filled out live or after the game, or you can just let us do the heavy lifting through Hudl Assist. Either way, you'll have killer highlights to share with fans within within hours of every game’s conclusion.
