A quick update on me first, pertinent to this message:
After graduation from GHS in ’96 and then ISU in ‘00, I coached college football for 16 years before transitioning into a Director of Athletics role at a Junior College in California this past year.
Last summer ’17, and again this summer, I was able to visit Head Football Coach Cam Andersen at GHS and experience firsthand his interaction and instruction with the kids at GHS. Without hesitation I can tell you that he cares for those kids and they respond well to the coaching staff. These kid’s football IQ is nothing but the highest of quality. Its a great culture they have there.
Now for what I’m asking your help with:
I noticed through my conversations with Coach Andersen that the program is lacking a piece of video equipment that - in my experience - is ABSOLUTELY critical for kid’s education and development. Coach Andersen has expressed a great need for this equipment to me. And i'd like us Alumni to get this done for them.
The Gooding Senators have never had an endzone camera shot to teach and learn from, to the best of my knowledge. All of you who played OL, DL, LB, RB, and QB can appreciate how awesome this would have been to see and learn from this video angle. This video equipment can change the way kids learn. It can also provide them with a much-needed recruiting video tool for those who wish to play at the collegiate level. I can tell you as a collegiate coaching veteran that without an endzone camera angle to evaluate a recruit, it is extremely difficult to evaluate a recruit properly.
I’m asking you to get onboard with helping me purchase this instructional and recruiting video tool for these kids and coaches. Below is a link for a system that I am very familiar with…to show you what we will be purchasing. Not only will this system be used at home games for the kids, but they will travel with it to road games and summer camps as well.
Thank you all for joining me in helping these kids out!
10-days before their first game. Can we get this camera system in-place for these kids before that?

**This fundraiser is driven by me, for this specific purpose, and not steared by the GHS Football program and staff. Through Coach Andersen's communication to me of needs, I pinpointed this on my own as the absolute top priority, from my vast experiences in the sport. What an important and valuable teaching tool this will be for them...for many years into the future!!
We are needing to purchase the LX21 model. It is the best fit for GHS.
TOGETHER, this should be quickly accomplished.
