Murfreesboro, TN (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Recruit Reels, a sports highlight video production company, announces the signing of former Tennessee Titan, Brad Hopkins. Brad joins the Recruit Reels team so that he can help more high school athletes realize their dream of playing at the next level. Brad leverages his 13 years as an NFL pro, two pro bowls, Super Bowl experience and a youth football coach to inspire high school athletes to secure a professionally produced highlight video for self-recruiting purposes.
Brad stated, “I know first hand how competitive it is at every level and with slashed recruiting budgets a high school player must understand the importance of self-recruiting. That is, they must not depend on home made videos to promote their skills to coaches, recruiters and scouts. Recruit Reels offers the best production value in the business which is why I am excited to be part of their team.”
Recruit Reels provides a cost-effective resource for high school athletes that need to promote their talents to college coaches. The NCAA sanctions 23 sports for scholarships at Division I and Division II colleges and universities. Recruit Reels was established because of the need for high schools athletes to “self-recruit”. In 2009 over 440,000 athletes received either partial or full athletic scholarships, yet only 2% of them were directly recruited. The other 98% promoted themselves. Recruit Reels is focused on assisting the 98% in securing athletic scholarships through professional video.
Brian Reed, the director of video services at Recruit Reels states, “Bringing Brad on board lets the coaches, parents and athletes know we are serious about helping them realize their dream of playing college ball. Brad is a wealth of knowledge and one of the best communicators we’ve witnessed. He not only inspires the kids but educates parents on how to better afford college tuition through athletic scholarships.”
Recruit Reels provides a robust website with the ability to both view highlight videos from athletes all across America as well as purchase video packages online which start at just $299. All videos are posted on the Recruit Reels website and all athletes that purchase a video package receive at least 20 free dvd’s with their highlight reel. Additionally, Recruit Reels provides video services for athletic events, and tribute videos as well as a variety of pre-season and sport-specific specials.
