LINCOLN, Neb., June 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) has named Hudl its official video replay solution through 2020. The two-year partnership allows schools to implement instant replay for officiating purposes during high school football games starting next season.
Game officials will have access to participating schools' pre-existing replay systems during the season, alleviating the need to purchase any additional equipment. Over 100 New Jersey high schools currently use Hudl Sideline to drive in-game adjustments and player development.
"We're thrilled to join the NJSIAA in their efforts to improve the sport through technology," said Ashley Broesch, General Manager of American Football at Hudl. "As one of the first states to implement instant replay for officials at this level, New Jersey is leading the way in finding innovative ways to improve the game. Video analysis can do wonders for coach and player development – we think this technology will have the same effect for officials. Teams invest a ton of time and effort leading up to each game, and if you're in a position to increase your chances of getting the biggest calls right on game day, you have to explore it."
"We believe that this partnership is going to greatly help assist game officials during the upcoming season and enhance the overall experience for everyone, especially during the big moments of the game," Jack DuBois, the assistant director of the NJSIAA, said. "We are ecstatic for the opportunity to experiment with replay video technology through Hudl Sideline."
