And it’s my pleasure to welcome him back on the show. I’m real pumped to get into it with him. So please welcome to Sporting Good Posture, Jacob Cleaver, welcome back to the show.

[00:04:29] Jacob, it’s good to have you back. How you doing today, Jacob? I’m good. I appreciate you guys having us back on. It’s good to talk with you guys again and uh, we’re excited to be here. So going back a few years ago, I had met you, I think I met you at D one when we were doing mm-hmm. an event, and they have some booths and everything there.

[00:04:47] And I was really interested in what you did. And actually going back through you, your episode that we did with Christian was one of the, were the most listened to episodes that we’ve done on this show after we looked at, at the [00:05:00] downloads on it. So I thought it would be great to bring you back and see kind of what the changes have been and, and after the pandemic and, and.

[00:05:08] What re you know, kind of what recruiting is now compared to was three or four years ago. We reme. I remember that and things have definitely changed, uh, mostly for the good and everything, especially with happening for the pandemic and. It, it has really affected student athletes, uh, a lot. Especially because when it first hit there was, well, what was it?

[00:05:29] Spring season? Yeah. All of those athletes didn’t even get, they didn’t get to do anything, like, everything shut down even through the summer. So they were doing a lot, and that affected us to where we weren’t really doing much because of it to where, uh, you would see student athletes, like out in their garage or out in their backyard just doing their own video.

[00:05:51] Yeah, that’s what I was wondering. I figured that, um, kids, cuz they couldn’t play, they and they didn’t have any highlight tapes, they would really have to figure out something to show these [00:06:00] colleges. So when we talked a few years ago, I know we, we mostly talked about football, but what are you seeing now like as far as other sports and, and um, have you been able to add other sports and then on top of that, what are you doing to help them if they weren’t able to get a lot of highlights of on field product?

[00:06:20] So we’ve always done, uh, all 23 n c sanctioned sports. We’ve done some that aren’t. We’ve actually done eSports, uh, video for someone before who, you know, that’s a big thing in college now. Um, so yeah, we’ve, we’ve always done. All of those. But our big sports that we really focus on or not focus on that we do a lot of are soccer, and then we do a lot of basketball, and then football is more seasonal.

[00:06:46] So during the actual season, that’s when we do a lot of the football. We’ll do some right after. , but it’s kind of hard for them. It’s, you know, they’ll go and do showcases and camps and stuff over the summer. Right. But that’s like the [00:07:00] one sport that after it’s kind of done, it’s, you know, it’s not like you can go and do a a u tournaments or things like that.

[00:07:07] So they’re once, when we’re in the season, we are. Heavily focused on football. Um, but throughout, if I said the two sports throughout the entire year that we’re, we’re constantly doing videos on it’s soccer and basketball. So that’s something that we’re very familiar with and we understand, you know, what college coaches are looking for.

[00:07:27] All sports that we do is we have a good. Understanding how evolve it and if there’s a sport, maybe per se, like I’m not the best at wrestling, so that’s where I, I know things to look for. But I’ll have, Christian will help me out. He has a background in wrestling and then we also try to have, not on staff, but just on standby of like either.

[00:07:46] Previous coach or previous athlete who’s played that sport that if we’re not super familiar with, we can reach out to, and they’ll help us in that process. After we’ll go through and, you know, if we’re picking out the plays, they’ll help us make sure that we’re highlighting the best plays. [00:08:00] And with everything that’s gone on during the pandemic, the one big thing that’s.

[00:08:04] We’ve done more of. We did a good amount before, but what we’ve done more of since the pandemic is like a skill session video because A, we can control the setting and then like B is that a lot of these athletes were doing these skill session fours haven’t had the chance to film. You know, they don’t have those game highlights.

[00:08:25] Or if they do, it’s like they’re senior now and they’re like, I don’t have anything since I was a sophomore. It’s like, you’re probably like, at least, you know, grown a good amount during that time. Some of these athletes are like six, eight inches taller and they’re showing me like sophomore footage of them playing football or soccer.

[00:08:41] So where we can do a skill session where there’s certain drills or. Activities we’re gonna do through a, you know, one to two hour session. And we usually have it where they have a coach come out or a parent come out and we run through certain drills for, so for like soccer, for example, we’re gonna do [00:09:00] footwork, we’re gonna do, uh, shots on goal.

[00:09:02] We’re gonna see them pass down field. You know, if they’re goalie. Goalie in soccer is a big thing where even if you have game footage, there’s a chance you may only touch the ball once. So that’s to where we can, we can control that setting more. So since the pandemic, we’ve really seen that because even when things have been shut down, they’ve been able to, if it’s us providing, we can’t get a videographer out to them, we can provide them a detailed list of like, Hey, this is what you need to capture.

[00:09:29] And sometimes it’s just like the mom and dad going out with the kid in the backyard and doing the type. Um, shots we need or they go to the local park that, you know and just shoot it in the morning. So it is, that has been really beneficial to these athletes because they still have had the opportunity to talk to coaches.

[00:09:47] Recruiting is still happening. It’s just they, especially the kids who are now like seniors. They’ve had kind of a, you know, like baseball, like even though baseball came back last year in some areas of the [00:10:00] country, it was still very like limited on what they could do. So that has been a huge help for them because it has been able to allow them, ha ha, continue to have that communication and now, you know, they’re kind of getting recruited.

[00:10:12] Maybe later on, maybe, you know, so start of the senior year, maybe typically going into senior year, they’ve got a couple offers or so now it’s like, hey, we’re talking with this. You know, and we need to get as footage out as possible. And then the big thing, other than the skill session, the big thing we’ve seen, we’ve kind of had an uptick in trying to help do like live streaming events for athletes to where, you know, parents haven’t been able to go to stand.

[00:10:35] So trying to help them, it’s the school doesn’t provide it. Try to help them provide that in some way. But also the turnaround time. So typically when we do a video, we do a video, and once we receive all the footage, we’ll have them a rough copy within two to three weeks. We’ve seen a large amount of athletes over the last, uh, year and a half.

[00:10:54] Come to us and like, Hey, can you have it to us like in the next four to five days? And that’s just because [00:11:00] when coaches are contacting them, they’re needing something faster just because of the limited time they’ve had. So we’ve seen up in that. And that’s the service we wanna be able to offer everyone because we understand how important this is.

[00:11:12] And at the end of the day, that’s our ultimate goal, is to be able to help these student athletes achieve their dream and playing at the next level. So if that means, you know, we can help them, you know, if they can get us the footage. It means we get ’em out a video within the next week, you know, three to four days.

[00:11:27] We’ve had a handful to our. Can you have it to me like tomorrow morning? It’s like . Yeah. It’s like, uh, yeah, if you have the footage ready to go, like, we’ll make something happen for you. And we’ve had a handful of those and that’s the appreciation that we’ve received from that has been, you know, you know, I played sports growing up and I realized my sophomore year of high school that I wasn’t gonna make it to the major leagues and baseball.

[00:11:50] So being able to see, you know, hear. The parents and even the athletes like tell, you know, reach back out to us afterwards and like tell us like, Hey, we [00:12:00] really appreciate you getting us that video so fast, or all the work you’ve done. The coach really loved it. We’re going out to meet with them. You know, once everything, you know, opens back up or, you know, we’re having a, a FaceTime or Zoom or something with them later on once we’re like this eligible season for them to talk and like the appreciation that they, they have for that, like that means a lot to.

[00:12:21] You know, we’ll, we’ll do whatever we can to help them in that process. That’s interesting. It, it has gone a lot more where you, you probably just had to set up these drills, you know, that. I didn’t even think of that. Like a goalie. Yeah. May only make a few, saves a game. So you really gotta do something on the side and show what the, what the person can do and goal.

[00:12:42] Mm-hmm. , one of the things that we’ve talked about more lately, and I noticed with the pandemic, . A lot of people started doing golf because it was something that was still open and it was outside, so it was one of the sports that was still available to do. Have you seen an uptick in golf and an uptick in people going and trying to go to [00:13:00] college to get recruited for golf?

[00:13:01] Oh, we’ve gotten phone calls on that over the years. It’s just a lot of parents haven’t contacted us about that. That’s a sport more that we’ve heard more from, like the private coaches that do stuff, that’s a different type of sport because. You know, we can’t really go out and follow them in a, you know, eight plane, 18 holes.

[00:13:19] Yeah. And golf is more of like, that’d be more like a skill session. Like the times we have, uh, talked with parents and stuff like that, that’s what we’ve set up. It’s like, all right, like they’re like, well, can you come film this best? It’s like, what actually would be better is if we come out, we do some putting drills, some chipping drills, and then just go put ’em on, put you on the t.

[00:13:37] Now we may not be able to track the ball, but that’s where coaches. They can be able to tell from the swing, um, you know, the position of their hands, their form, and everything like that. Like when we do baseball skill sessions, I don’t track the ball. I put a camera, you know, I put camera stationary behind and on the side because coaches are looking at the form.

[00:13:58] They’re gonna, they’re gonna see where their [00:14:00] hips are, where their hands are, where their feet are. So we would do the same thing for golf. It’s just we haven’t had. It’s golf is a different world in that, that aspect where a lot of ’em are kind of close knit. Um, so we’ve gotten calls and everything from it, but per professionally, we just haven’t had that many.

[00:14:17] We would love to do more because we know how we could help in that aspect. It’s just, it’s a different world. But, uh, yeah, I’ve def just personally looking, you know, following sports and everything like that, I have seen more people because, like you said, you can go outside or, you know, , go to a giant field and just be able to practice that, especially during the pandemic to where, you know, it’s, if you’re by yourself, it’s, it’s a little easier to do things.

[00:14:41] The good thing is you guys know what these coaches are looking for. You know, what kind of drills that need to be done and skills that need to be performed so they can really get a good look at the athletes and get an idea of what they can do and then see kind of where maybe their strengths or weaknesses are.

[00:14:56] Just by, like you said, looking at their hands and their, their [00:15:00] contact point on the ball rather than the flight of the ball afterwards with the skills videos, uh, are too is it’s coming to get you in the door and it’s the same thing with the highlight videos is. , this has kinda helped to get you in the door solidify that you are, you know, the type of athlete you are.

[00:15:15] But they’re eventually, you know, once has the more conversations and stuff you have, they’re gonna try to come to a live game. It may not be the head coach, it may be an assistant coach, it may be, uh, a graduate assistant, but they’re gonna eventually be able to come and see you live. And this is the, the, you know, the show that you’re actually like, Hey, I can hit a ball, you know, 300 yards.

[00:15:34] And so these are kind of the help you in that process. She’s like, hi, my name. But, and then you’ve gotta, you know, eventually back it up. And a lot of the athletes we work with, most of ’em do, like, when they get that chance, that opportunity, um, they have that experience where they do get the coaches to come out or they get more footage and the coaches able to view it because, especially with during the pandemic, coaches weren’t able to travel, so they were relying heavily [00:16:00] on, on the highly videos.

[00:16:01] And then we did a lot of where the parents would send us a full game, especially with hockey, they were like, The coaches can’t come out. They don’t wanna see the hour and a half game with, you know, because a lot of these were, if they’re in a, uh, ice rink hockey, They’re filming even during, uh, you know, intermission periods and stuff like that to where they’re like, the coach isn’t gonna, you know, oh it takes forever than stuff.

[00:16:22] They’re like, can you take out shift, you know, two, three in the first, uh, period and shift fourth six. So we’ll do that cuz coaches are asking, they’re asking more for like, especially in hockey, like the, so we always try to do in our highlight videos is the, you know, the first 10 plays of the top 10, the 15 plays, you know, your sports center type plays.

[00:16:41] But we’re also looking for the hustle plays to where, you know, Say it’s football. And he, uh, athlete busted down the field too. They’re, they’re about to score interrupts the, you know, the running back about to go into the end zone, and then another person’s trailing behind Tune is able to tackle ’em right at the goal line.

[00:16:57] Coaches love to see those plays because they’re hustle plays. [00:17:00] They’re, you know, they’ve got the awareness of what they’re supposed to be doing, the knowledge of the game. So though, um, coaches wanna be able to see more of the game, so we’ll be getting parents send us, you know, say the school film net and they’re like, Hey, can you, Send us the first quarter, so we’ll clip out.

[00:17:15] So we’ve had a lot of things like that over the last year and a half too, because coaches haven’t physically been able to do it. I think it was just like six or eight months ago, they opened it up to where they could kind of start traveling again. But still, then it depends on where you live and everything.

[00:17:27] And you know, coaches are also talking to, in some cases, thousands of students. So sometimes sending them a quarter or sending them a half, the coaches can also say, okay, what do you do when you’re not on the ball? What do you do? Like, how are you preparing for like baseball? Okay. Like, are you. , you getting your stance before every, you know, the pitcher throws the pitch or are you just standing there, you know, tooling your thumbs.

[00:17:49] So coaches, coaches like to see that. And we’ve been, we’ve done a good more of, a good bit more of that to help these parents and the athletes in that process. I think that [00:18:00] what I’ve taken out of the, the last year is that the, just, everything’s changed really. And sports has changed too. So it’s great that you guys are changing with that.

[00:18:10] I find when these kids are doing this and they don’t have a way to contact these coaches or, or a way for the coaches to see ’em, they, they gotta get them somehow. And a lot of times having something that was taped just themselves isn’t always that great. So it’s good that you guys can edit it instead of having the whole game there, you can just send the pieces that they need that are the most important from the game.

[00:18:32] When Covid first, you know, hit and the pandemic started, we didn’t, you know, get a call for, cuz everyone, everything was just up there. Everything. Yeah, and you know, they’re still worried about like, oh, where’s my kid gonna go to college? But they’re also like, I need to make sure my family’s healthy, all of that.

[00:18:47] So we didn’t, we didn’t really get anything for a while, but, While we were doing, we just didn’t sit and wait and just like, all right, like, Hey, you know, our ultimate goal still was we wanna help student athletes. What is a way we can do it? And that’s to where we kind [00:19:00] of, we had the skill session thing beforehand.

[00:19:03] Yeah, we kind of just amplified it up a little bit. And that’s also where we didn’t really think, you know, the first time we did just cutting out quarters and. A parent said, Hey, yeah, coach just emailed me and they asked if I could send ’em like the quarter. I don’t know how to do that. And then we’re like, oh.

[00:19:17] And then we had another one a couple weeks later. So that’s where we were like, when parents would contact us, they’re, we would like, Hey, if this is something you need too, just let us know and that, you know, that’s, that’s something we can get out to faster, you know, if we are taking two weeks at your highlight video.

[00:19:31] And the coach was like, well, can you send me just like quarters? In the meantime, the parent would send us that. We’d have it back to him within, you know, within like 24 hours. Cuz that’s a little bit easier process because, when, the reason why it takes us a little bit longer when we’re doing the highlight video is that, you know, one, we have multiple athletes at a time, but we’re also like, we’re, we’re not, you know, just like, oh, here’s a good play.

[00:19:50] Just pick it out. We’re like, we’re watching it. I. . When I go through and watch a game, I watch the entire game. I make, I make my notes and everything, and then I rewatch it like two, you know, maybe two or three more [00:20:00] times because, and I’m picking out, it’s like, okay, this is, but I, I just narrow everything down.

[00:20:04] And if we have a, you know, a 24 hour turnaround time, I kind of pause everything. I’m still our, if I’m working on it, I’ll pause it. If not, I have, you know, we have other people that help us in this process tour. It’s like, all right, hey, can you solely just watch this game? And that’s where having, you know, good.

[00:20:21] The people who we work with and the people that work for us who have a good understanding of all of this and I can trust to be able to do it. And then at the end of the day, like our goal is still the same to we’re helping these athletes. And so when the pandemic started, it was even more now cuz it’s like I still wanted to be able to help just cuz you know, it’s, these kids are trying to decide what they wanna do in life.

[00:20:41] This is their future. So it’s something we really took the heart and made sure that we helped out as much as we possibly could. So, What’s your best advice for these athletes getting recruited and what kind of things do you recommend that they, that they do where they’ll get a better chance at? At being [00:21:00] recruited, we try to somewhat stay away from the actual, like, you know, Hey, this is what you do in the recruiting process.

[00:21:06] We have tips and stuff so you can find on our website, everything like that. Yeah. Um, 99% of the people who contact us are parents. The kids in school, the kids got sports going on. The kid also works a part-time. You know, they, they can do, you know, the, the video they need done, but it’s like, I don’t have time to do it.

[00:21:24] A lot of these parents are like, I don’t have time to do it. Yeah. So that’s where we’re here to help you in that process. Make it as simple and easy for you as possible, as stress theory, everything as well. But the one thing I tell parents is that being just communicative, so like if a parent, if a coach says, Hey, send me a highlight video, uh, so we can review it.

[00:21:44] I, I always tell parents this is that if they tell you, Don’t wait like a month to send it because they’ve also told a hundred other kids to send it. If so, I get, I get a phone call at least once a week where my parents tells me that it’s like, alright, because you told me like, let’s not, let’s not wait, like get me in the [00:22:00] footage as soon as possible.

[00:22:01] So just being punctual about it and being responsive. , that’s a, with anything to look for that. Yeah. Anyth anything in life is if you can be responsive and a clear line of communication, because they’re gonna be looking at these athletes through the highlight video, but they’re also gonna be, you know, reviewing you and scouting you on how communicative you are, how professional you are of like that clear line of communication.

[00:22:26] If you say, Hey coach, I’ll have it to you in a week, two months later, you get ’em a highlight video, they’re gonna look at that and it’s like, Brilliant on the field, but what does that say about this kid off the field? Or what does that say? You know, if he’s telling me he’s practicing every night, is he actually practicing every night or, yeah, it makes him think about your work ethic, so, mm-hmm.

[00:22:45] So those are the type of things I tell parents is that, you know, you’re gonna have recruiters out there who can help you actually, you know, get in touch with these coaches or, you know, self recruit yourself or, you know, a lot of these parents are doing it themselves where they’ve had someone who has [00:23:00] already gone through the recruiting process.

[00:23:01] Like, here are the things you need to. But like from our standpoint, if you can just that clear line of communication and you know, I was always ready. My, my dad and mom always taught me your word is your bond. If you tell coach one thing, you let you know, tell us that. Like if you’re okay with the two to three week turnaround time, awesome.

[00:23:18] If you say, Hey, I need it tomorrow. I need it next week, we’re gonna do whatever we can to help you because. One that reflects on us. Like we want, you know, we wanna be able to help us out. We wanna be able to have that parent tell another parent, like how we were able to help them, but we, at the end of the day, it’s gonna affect that athlete more.

[00:23:36] So just that clear line of communication. That’s the biggest thing we can tell athletes is, you know, if, if you tell coach one thing, let’s get it done. It’s funny, I’m thinking back, I played a bunch of sports in high school and, and I really wanted to, Play football in college, and I tell you, it was a pain to try to send schools tapes, you know, this was back when it was on VHS tape, [00:24:00] really for the most part.

[00:24:01] Mm-hmm. . So I remember trying to figure out ways, like I ended up just kind of sending a tape that had some multiple games and I would just kind of have the tape on the spot of one of those games. Um, to show the most outta me. So the coach didn’t have to go rewind or fast forward through a lot of things to find me, and I, I was remembering how, how tough that was to do that and figure out.

[00:24:27] The process at all. And I, I would’ve loved to have a service like this back, back, you know, years ago when I was playing. But even now. So even if, even if you have the footage, it’s still hard to know how to get it to the right spots, how to, how to edit it properly. So there really is a lot of value in what you guys do and, and.

[00:24:46] I admire what you do and, and helping people because that, at the end of the day, just like me, you know, I’m a chiropractor. I help people with weight loss and, and their spine and everything. Um, I do this to help them. And if they don’t get better, and if I don’t, you know, get a good [00:25:00] reputation on helping ’em, then you know, nobody’s gonna come in my office.

[00:25:03] So, same thing with you guys. Like when you get those tapes out within a short period of time like that, they, I know they appreciate that and they’ll talk about it and tell their, their friends and families. , the recruiting process is constantly revolving, especially now with the the N I L deals. I think that’s, yeah, that is cha, that’s gonna change the college recruiting landscape so much.

[00:25:24] It’s already starting to affect it because, you know, athletes are looking at more than just like the program, what the coach can provide, you know, the type of the scheme they play. They also looks like, all right, is this an area that maybe I could, you know, get a little bit more money, you know, for one of those type of deals.

[00:25:40] Yeah. And. So, and that, that’s really gonna change and that’s something. Parenting athletes are gonna focus on now, will it affect us as much? Like, it’s not gonna change how I edit a video or anything like that. Like I’m still gonna try to highlight the athlete as best as we possibly can, but that will ch uh, affect how parents look at everything [00:26:00] and, and especially the athletes and also how the schools recruit and everything like that.

[00:26:05] So it that’s, that’s something that, you know over. It’s still kind of, you know, fresh that, but, and some of these classes are just now, you know, going into the recruiting side of after the deal. Right. But it will, it will affect everything. And you know, it’ll be interesting to see how that all plays out over the next couple of years.

[00:26:24] That’s a great topic, um, that we can come back to, you know, we’ll have you on again at some point and then we can talk about that. Cuz that is a big part now that these, these kids can get endorsements and, and things like that, that they normally couldn’t get before. That opens up a whole new door for, for these kids.

[00:26:39] Um, yeah. So how do people get in touch with you? Like, do you guys have Instagram, Facebook, uh, we’re. Facebook. We’re on Twitter, we’re on Instagram. We’re probably the most active on Facebook because 99% of our clientele, our parents, uh, Kids have school sports, all that stuff. It’s, they’ve got [00:27:00] a lot on their plate, especially for being teenagers.

[00:27:02] So you find us on Facebook, you can find us on Twitter, Instagram. Um, our website is recruit You can reach us at our phone number at eight three three four seven three. 2 7 84. You can go on our website and look at all the packages. You can look at all of our previous, uh, athletes, highlight videos to kind of see how we edit, uh, what we do in that aspect.

[00:27:26] And then we also have, uh, an option on there to where when you go on our website, if you wanna request information and you can put a little bit of information about what your athlete does, uh, if you need us to come out and film those type of things. And. , we get those and try to respond again as soon as possible, either through email or personally giving you a call.

[00:27:45] Awesome. Well, thank you for sharing that with us. It was great having you on. Again, I look forward to doing another one with you and we’ll, we’ll have plenty of things to talk about with all the changes that are going on in sports right now. We definitely appreciate you having us on. I had a great time.

[00:27:59] It was [00:28:00] great talking with you guys and talking about how, uh, everything this pandemic was caused. And I know This’s probably affected you with your, um, chiropractic business. And that’s the one thing when we mention you is that like, kind of you caught our eyes, the fact that you did this stuff for the high school athlete said, I played baseball and high school and stuff.

[00:28:19] I wasn’t any good. I thought it was incredible. But, uh, that’s one. So did I, . Yeah, . Uh, but that’s one of those things, especially with how things are today, if like the training and everything, everything you do for these athletes, that’s what caught our eye because there’s not a, you don’t hear a lot about like how that can help you in the long run.

[00:28:38] Once you get done 40 years from now or whatever, how do you wanna feel? Take the precautions now, take the, you know, self-care now and that stuff to, you know, make your life later on better. So now that’s, that’s what caught us about it. We follow your work, you see everything you guys are posting and we’ve told, told you about your services.

[00:28:54] Some athletes local that we’ve talked to, and I definitely appreciate. We have [00:29:00] noticed over the last four or five years, I’ve seen more student athletes, you know, middle school, high school, and we’ve been able to help a lot of them stay healthy so that they can go to college and play sports. I find a lot of these injuries happen in either middle school or high school that linger, that turn into.

[00:29:16] Um, lingering injuries where they end up not being able to play in college because they never got better from that first injury. So we’ve been able to help a lot of kids either recover from injuries or just stay healthy where they don’t really get injuries badly and stay on the field more. Cuz that’s the other thing is coaches are looking for.

[00:29:33] You to be strong and have endurance where you’re able to be playing in, in all the games and not miss a bunch of games cuz of injuries that, you know, they’re less likely to get a scholarship because of that. And it could cost you, you know, a hundred grand, 200 grand of money or sometimes more with these endorsements.

[00:29:48] Now if you’re a good athlete and, and they wanna market you. Um, so it’s worth keeping your body healthy cuz that’s, that’s the machine that that gets you, that gets you going, gets you the product. Uh, yes, sir. [00:30:00] Completely agree. Keeping your mind and your body healthy, especially at a young age, and as you get older, it’s gonna help you in the long run.

[00:30:06] Absolutely. Well, it’s good talking to you again, and, and I look forward to talking to you, do another interview in the future. Yeah. Thank you guys again, and, uh, we appreciate it and hope you guys keep doing what you guys are doing. Thanks a lot.
