Telecom student's video on ESPN website
CNU Gala

Telecom student Jazzmyn Reid's camera work is being shown on ESPN's website. She and fellow Telecom student Kolby Monson recorded the Woodside-Phoebus football game October 21 at Darling Stadium. Going into the game, Phoebus had won 52 games in a row -- the longest winning streak in the state and in the nation. When Woodside upset Phoebus 14-9, it was national news for high school sports, and ESPN contacted Woodside's communications teacher Michael Price to ask for video of the game.

Luckily, Price and Woodside Athletic director Todd Price (no relation) had requested that Telecom send a couple students to cover the game. Normally, students only cover games that are broadcast live on NNPS-TV, which involves using the remote video production truck and a crew of about 15 staff and students.

That night, Jazzmyn and Kolby shot with Panasonic HD camcorders: Jazzmyn in the stands with a tripod and Kolby on the sidelines without. The footage was for the football coach and the morning announcements. When ESPN asked for video, Jazzmyn's footage was used because it was shot similarly to the footage ESPN uses on their shows.

The video clips show a couple plays and the Wolverines celebrating their victory. It was pitched for TV, but wasn't included in the final three topics.

The video is part of the "ESPNHS Minute" which can be found at:

It can also be found by searching "Woodside" on ESPN.com.
