WR is a very popular position and it is probably the most common choice for people who just start playing football. This means that there will be a lot of competition when it comes to recruiting. Today we are going to talk about the BEST ways you can stand out on film to a college coach.
Your first 3 plays make or break you. If they are just routine/average plays don’t expect a coach to take any interest. The first three plays should be big plays. Either you making a great catch, a long touchdown after a short catch or a deep ball where you can show how well you create separation. This is what coaches are looking for when it comes to your film. Let’s say you maybe don’t have these big plays, the first 3 clips need to be your BEST plays. But don’t expect an offer/interest if they are just average.
The second thing you want to include is blocking film. Mix that into the first maybe 10 clips of your tape. Blocking showcases that you are more than just a pass catcher and that you can actually be involved with the run game. Blocking will help you stay on the field at the collegiate level. Make sure you can showcase this ability.
Last but not least, you want to be able to show that you have the speed and the explosiveness to play at the next level. When we would scout guys on film, back when I coached for a school, we would look at their stride length. If they took 2 strides for every 5yds we knew they were pretty quick. But you need to show that you can explode off the ball, have speed in and out of breaks and have speed with the ball in your hands. This is a rare find in high school kids so if you can showcase this ability, you will really stand out to recruiters.
