I put "tape" in parentheses because we all know it's really a DVD, but you know what I mean.
When making a tape for college coaches, keep some things in mind. College coaches really don't like "Highlight" tapes, they want two "Full Game" films. They don't care who those games are against, they kind of know that you are going to send game films of weaker teams, but they want to see how a player plays from play to play. Are you taking plays off?
Now, if you really want to make a "Highlight" tape, that fine, but limit it to 10 minutes. Coaches don't want to watch you kill lessor athletes for two and half hours. Just make it 10 minutes and add it to the DVD prior to the full game film.
Some little things are often forgotten when sending tapes to college coaches: Be sure to put your jersey number and color and position on the DVD. Don't assume the coaches know who you are. Let them know which team you are on and what your number is. Also, tell them what position you are playing, if you are player two or more positions, list those other positions as well so they can easily find you on the film. If you have the capability, use a highlighting tool to highlight yourself prior to each play, so they can find you even easier.
I have asked coaches, in this media age, if they still like getting DVD's, or if they prefer games sent in electronic format, via the web. They have all told me they still like getting the DVD's. Some coaches are more tech savvy then others, but everyone knows how to put a DVD in.
