Hey cool we got a new Pic!
If you are one of those individuals who wants more out of EP Gridiron this truth will possibly sting a little and make you scratch your head.
EP Gridiron has a videographer at every game and sometimes they have 2 videographers at games and during the playoffs they have 3 up to 4 videographers at the game. Like I said it's going to sting but you have been warned.
What EP Gridiron uploads to their youtube page is a very small no extremely tiny percentage of the games they video record. Most all of their footage is used for recruiting purposes that they email privately to college recruiters and they also send out dvds to college recruiters plus they do projects for parents and booster clubs. Think about it. EP Gridiron does not upload a lot of video highlights online because the booster clubs are going to sell the dvds at the end of the season. If EP Gridiron was to upload alot of video highlights online then noone would buy the dvds from the booster clubs. There is alot more to all this. Anyways this is what they do and what they primarily focus on. EP Gridiron does alot more offline than online.
Don't believe TheTruth?
Have you ever seen EP Gridiron videographers at a game then wait for them to upload video highlights of that game to their youtube page? Days, weeks, months pass and video highlights of that game where you saw EP Gridiron videographers at were never uploaded. EP Gridiron does not upload all their videos nor even all the photos from their network of photographers. Imagine if they did? As it is EP Gridiron is already known by many throughout.
Like I said there is a lot more to all of this and I thought I would share this truth with those asking for more out of EP Gridiron. Some of you already knew all of this and I'm sure know lots of other things about EP Gridiron that I don't. Anyways thought I would share some truth for those that did not know and are questioning why EP Gridiron does not do this or do that or simply do more. There's a reason behind it all.
Ok that Eastlake jones kid has been up there for practically a week can EP Gridiron rotate another pic please.
Come on EPG we know you have tons of photos.
Hankins is now featured on EP Gridiron's main page and deservingly so and I hope it stays up for weeks! Thank you EP Gridiron
EP Gridiron needs to feature Karch Gardiner
I'm sorry but this is ridiculous. Why is it EPGridirons job to get these kids a scholarship? If these kids want a scholarship they should be contacting teams themselves. They need to be sending out film on themselves to whichever program they would like a shot at. They should be asking their coaches to help them reach out to colleges and universities, but it is not EPGridiron's responsibility. Hankins did not receive a scholarship because of this website putting him on their home page. EPGridiron should feature the top athletes in the city regardless of scholarships or not. If you want to get your kid a scholarship, then send his film out to different programs. Take the initiative yourself and stop asking other people to do it for you. If you don't like my comment I'm sorry, but this needed to be said.
EPG in years past had a slideshow at times on their home page rotating photos of several players. It would rotate automatically like every 3 to 5 seconds. I would see it so I know they can do it the million dollar question is why don't they do that?
I absolutely agree that players should not depend on their high school coaches to help them with the recruiting process. It is not the coaches responsibility whatsoever.
Players should cut their own out of the film that their coaches have someone shoot at all games.
Players should make sure their film looks appealing on hudl and not all crappy.
Players should attend camps but make sure they are not scam camps and ripoffs because there are a lot of camps that promise things like that division 1 recruiters will be present or whatever when in fact they will not be. Be careful with SCAMPS as I like to call them.
Players should stay on top of their academics with a good GPA and take that ACT or SAT and all that important stuff.
Players should register and be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center
Players should open accounts on all recruiting websites all over the internet as possible not just one and don't only depend on hudl
Players should do well at games then pray and hope EP Gridiron, El Paso Times, and all the media post something about you because anything and everything helps because the honest truth is that there are millions upon millions of high school football players throughout the United States attempting to get the attention of recruiters. Getting a division 1 scholarship is like hitting the millions dollar lottery.
EP Gridiron needs to cover more teams and be fair.
