There's a new genre of football recruiting videos: the so bad it's good reel.
In December, we brought you the story of Montgomery Bell Academy (Nashville, Tenn.) senior Ryan Potter, whose recruiting video opened with the line, "Get Your Popcorn Ready...The Show's Startin'." The Show, it turned out, was hilariously lacking in actual highlights.
Dominion (Sterling, Va.) senior tight end and linebacker Rich Tran took a similar approach in his "Best Highlight Reel Ever," which you can watch above. The first highlight features Tran (imagining himself) making a crushing hit (while standing on the sideline).
“Really, the plays in the video were the only ones that I was on the field for this season,” Tran told The Washington Post. “But overall, I had a lot of fun.”
Tran plans to study sports marketing at VCU or Christopher Newport. Unless, that is, his highlight video gets him a football scholarship offer. He told the Post he looked up contact info for the University of Alabama’s athletic director. Way to aim high.
