Digital Scout football viewers across the country will now be treated to a unique, one-of-a-kind experience starting this fall. Due to a new partnership with several different state athletics & activities associations, viewers will now be able to stream data in real time from a variety of states, across our nation in one solidified place. 

 

For the first time in Digital Scout's nearly 20 years, users will be able to view data casts of football games on a state scoreboard for Washington D.C., Wyoming, North Dakota, Alabama, Ohio, Tennessee and areas of Texas with many more to come. 

 

This unique treat is due to a partnership between Digital Scout and each individual athletic or activities association.

 

Housed on each athletic or activities association state website, viewers will be able to watch the data stream in from any and all schools who are utilizing Digital Scout to track their stats on Friday nights.

 

Have a program in Texas that you want to check up on? Visit Dave Campbell's TexasFootball.com to check them out. How about your nephew's game in D.C. that you can't make it to? Maybe your alma mater has a committed athlete playing in Ohio on Friday night? With this new platform, viewers can check out scores from all across the nation as they happen.

 

Follow along with the Digital Scout Twitter at @digitalscout for up-to-the-minute news and further information regarding which states are partnering with Digital Scout and which games are happening live on Fridays.

Hundreds of athletes sign letters of intent on NSD

Last Wednesday, one of the most exciting times for high school athletes dawned upon us, a day signifying a commitment to not only an education, but also the chance to play their respective sport at the next level. National Signing Day marked the day in which senior athletes must declare and fax in their letters of intent to their intended university, accepting their scholarship offer.

 

While some use NSD as the day to finally make known their college choice, others make what might have been known for awhile, official. Either way, it is a day that most athletes, especially high school football players, anxiously wait for most of their lives.

 

With the culmination of a number of high school careers, we’ll take a look back at the athletes whose programs used the HSGameCenter product and signed LOI’s to attend major college football programs last week.

Former Akron St. Vincent St. Mary star LeBron James recently said that if he had played one year of college he would have ended up at Ohio State.  The pipeline from Akron to Columbus may have been a pipe dream for James and Buckeye fans, but it is a reality for current SVSM star Parris Campbell.  "He is definitely ready to play at the next level and the Ohio State University is very lucky to have him," says Fighting Irish head football coach Dan Boarman.

 

 

 

 

Campbell has by no means flown under the radar, but his break out game came last December in a 42-21 victory over Bellevue to help SVSM win the OHSAA Division III State Championship.  Campbell rushed for 168 yards and 3 touchdowns in that game with his future coach Urban Meyer watching from the sidelines.  It capped a 1,353 yard and 28 TD season for Parris.  

 

In 2013, Campbell is back at it with 696 rushing yards and 11 TDs to date.  He has also returned 1 kick and 3 punts for scores in 7 games.  The senior's top game came last Friday against Thurgood Marshall in which he ran for 203 yards and 3 touchdowns.  He also tallied 5 tackles on the defensive side of the ball in that contest garnering him HSGC National Player of the Week honors.  “Parris has been our best player this year and has emerged as a team leader," added Boarman.  "This award is a great recognition for all Parris has accomplished this year because he has set high goals and more importantly has worked extremely hard to reach those goals.”

 

Campbell and the Fighting Irish battle Barberton this Friday.  You can follow the live play-by-play stats of this game at the following address: http://www.hsgamecenter.com/football/male/game/1499312

The saying, "everything is bigger in Texas," gets used quite frequently.  But in the matter of FBS recruits by state, that saying is definitely NOT hyperbole.  According to Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine and SB Nation, Texas high schools have produced over 2,000 FBS players in the last 6 years.  That is an astounding 15% of all FBS recruits.  
 
What might be even more incredible is that over half of all FBS recruits come from just 5 states.  Those states in order are Texas, Florida, California, Georgia, and Ohio.
 
Total Recruits and Share by State (2008-2013)
 
Rank   State                  Total          Share
1           Texas                2,147         15.3%
2.          Florida              1,922          13.7%
3.          California         1,415          10.1%
4.          Georgia              950             6.8%
5.          Ohio                    909             6.5%
6.          Alabama             502             3.6%
7.          Louisiana           499             3.6%
8.          Pennsylvania     405            2.9%
9.          Illinois                 378              2.7%
10.       Michigan             361              2.6%
 
What is interesting about these numbers, and how they relate to HSGameCenter.com, are that they are very comparable.  Similar in number of teams participating by state and similar in areas in which we receive the most traffic per week.  The one regional area of exception would by Kansas City where over 100 teams in that specific metro section are all using our apps to stat their games which directly feeds HSGameCenter.com.
