We are making a major effort to do a better job of keeping our offensive team stats so that we can send them to the newspapers immediately after a game. Instead of having back-up QB's do it (and screw it up), we will have 2 frosh coaches in the box keeping stats. My question is: Is there a way to do this electronically,or do any of you have a form? Is there a way to do this via HUDL (we are a HUDL team)?

It's kind of a funny situation, but I'll tell it anyway. We've had a guy at our school who has done "the book" from the press box for years. Each play gets put down as a gain of 7, loss of 2, interception, who intercepted it, for how many yards return, etc. etc. He's a good guy who likes doing his part for the program, but he's just not very good at keeping book. haha. luckily, we've got a guy who can quickly watch film as we're loading it on Hudl (which we do right after games, just to get it out of the way and get the trade going) and figure it all out to quickly fix the mistakes (not saying every play is wrong, but there's always more than one, haha) to at least be much closer to actual numbers than the book we get. Then we fax that report to the newspapers.
As I type this, I'll also say that we have a scoreboard operator that DOES NOT give us the home field advantage on the clock, haha. He is stopping it at exactly the instant an incomplete happens, before the official signals, even if it's 30 seconds left and they're driving to try to beat us when we're up by 2. Not saying I want to cheat, but I wouldn't hate it if his reflexes weren't as great as they are. haha
