In our last year of school, I remember many football games with a guy
at the highest point on the bleachers at the home and away games with a
video camera recording our football games. I paid him no mind, thinking he
was from a TV station trying to capture highlights from the games for their
sports feature in their news programs.
Later on I recognized this same "guy" around campus
Tim Shane to be Ronnie Shuping.
While performing my manager duties for the football team, sometimes the
team would be watching, what I thought was a football game on TV. Huh?
Upon a closer look, I realized what was happening was that the football
coaches, Marvin Tuttle and Howard Duel, was pointing out game plays
of the previous night's game, that is, learning from both teams' mistakes
as well as picking up new tricks and plays from the opposing team.
Cool, eh? Taking advantage of the new video technology
is a common practice as well as parents taping videos of their own kids
and even incidents that sometimes get shown on local and even network
