The football seasons for many schools are only now just ending and we're already getting some pretty powerful, compelling responses about the EDGE Replay system. What do serious football coaches have to say about their experience with EDGE Sideline Replay?
At Vacaville High School in CA, head football coach and athletic director, Mike Papadopoulas, went through the ringer to find a sideline instant replay system that would work for him. We're happy with where he landed:
"After a very disappointing experience with Echo1612, I hoped Hudl Sideline would be my answer to replay systems. Unfortunately Hudl Sideline was not ... we continued to have major problems with clips loading, network connection failures, and app crashes. We gave our best effort (both time and money) pouring more funds into the highest recommended equipment and having a full time IT person on hand at our games. When Hudl Sideline failed us when we needed them the most entering the playoffs, I once again began my search for a product that would work.
I am very excited to say I have found what I have been looking for in EDGE Replay. The equipment is very durable and sets up with ease along with the rest of our equipment. Our program purchased the 2 camera system (We also use a large flat screen on the field along with a number of iPads for our spotters in the pressbox and on the field) and it has not disappointed. The clips loaded both views within seconds of play completion and we were able to make adjustments before the next play was called."
Benjamin Franklin High School of Arizona finished the year strong - deep in the playoff semifinals in their 3A Division. A great drive and a great season ending with an overall 11-2 record for the year. Athletic Director Jeremy Strong also had a difficult time finding a reliable, intuitive sideline replay system for his football program until he found the EDGE. Different team, same story:
"Our experience with EDGE Replay was phenomenal this year. After toiling in bad connections, grainy film, and unreliable service from another sideline replay provider, we could not have been more pleased with the ease of set-up, reliability, and personal customer service provided by EDGE. Because we switched systems on the eve of our season, we didn't even scratch the surface of the features offered. Having a user-friendly, easy to set-up system was such a relief! We are excited to expand our usability amongst our staff in the offseason so we can capitalize even further on the wonderful system that is EDGE Replay. Having quick, concise replay on the sideline helped propel us to the semi-finals this year, and we look forward to partnering with EDGE Replay in our quest for a state-title next season!"
Success seems to be a common theme among EDGE Replay owners. Parkway Central High School of Missouri advanced to the final four in their Class 4 MO State Championship league, and ended the season with a 13-2 record. Coach Nick O'Donnell had this to say about EDGE Replay's benefits and customer service:
"The EDGE Replay system was very helpful to our success this year. This was our second year using it, and I really felt much more comfortable with everything. Probably the best thing about using EDGE Replay is the customer service that we received. Anytime I had a question, or a problem, all I had to do was make a phone call to Derek and it was fixed very quickly. Look forward to working with them again next year!"
We suspect the word of mouth will continue as more teams wrap up their seasons and have time to reflect on how beneficial EDGE Replay has been for their football program. Stay tuned for more news!
