Shadow Ridge Mustangs, NV - Case Study
Head Coach Travis Foster and the Shadow Ridge Mustangs Football Team of Las Vegas, Nevada have been on an incredible run over the past two seasons, compiling a 20-5 record with a perfect 12-0 mark at home.
The Mustangs have made two state title game appearances during that time, thanks in part to their explosive offense, which averaged 41.8 points and 399.1 total yards per game.
To help the powerhouse program achieve these impressive results, the team utilizes GameStrat for their sideline replay needs. According to Coach Foster, the sideline replay system has made a significant impact on the team's efficiency.
GameStrat has allowed us to be so much more efficient as coaches. We don't meet on Saturdays anymore - families appreciate it, coaches appreciate it, and players appreciate it.
Before making the switch to GameStrat, Foster and his team were constantly plagued with issues from previous sideline replay systems.
“Before we switched to GameStrat for sideline replay, we were constantly having issues with previous systems and looking for a solution. In 2021, we played in a state final where our system wouldn’t work and it was a mess.”
For the Mustangs, switching to GameStrat for sideline replay has provided reliability that takes the stress out of game day. GameStrat has consistently provided the Mustangs with reliable sideline replay performance, even in large stadiums like Allegiant Stadium.
GameStrat has worked day in and day out - and that's the biggest thing you can ask for from a sideline replay system. It takes all the stress out of game day.
One of the biggest benefits for Coach Foster and his staff is the speed of GameStrat - whether its sending video to the iPads on the bench or uploading it to a film exchange platform after the games.
"After the game, we are able to upload film before even leaving the press box - that's how fast GameStrat is," he says.
For any coach considering a switch to GameStrat for sideline replay, Coach Foster's advice is clear:
Jump in! The set up is extremely easy, it's less expensive than other options, and it works for us every time.
The value of sideline replay on game days is undeniable - but how can coaches leverage it in the day to day practices leading up to Friday night? If you’re already paying for the technology, you may as well get your money’s worth. We started using it during practice as well and it eliminates the down time that guys have standing around on the sideline. As soon as we’re done with a session we come off the field and go over what we just ran. Defensively we’re on the smart board using GameStrat while the offense is on the field and then we’ll switch. -Marcus Neeson, AC at Apopka High SchoolMar 7, 2023
