Wildcat football fans have a chance to get a more in-depth perspective of the upcoming Benjamin Russell football season.
Through June 1, locals can become part of a new initiative called Wildcat Insiders.
According to BRHS football videographer John Elliott, it is designed to help promote the football team during the 2013 season.
Proceeds from members go to the football team, primarily to assist BRHS with travel expenses.
“We’ve always had amazing community support for our boys,” Elliott said. “Now that technology has gotten a lot better, we’re looking at this as a way to get as many people connected to the Wildcats as we can.”
To join the Insiders, you have to make a donation of at least $50, although you can give as much as you want.
Making the donation and providing your email address gets you film access of every game that the Benjamin Russell football team plays in this year.
“When you provide your email address, we send you all the Wildcats’ games this year. You can watch them whenever you choose.”
The game footage will be provided in part by Hudl, which handles game tape for numerous teams and coaches from the amateur, collegiate and professional ranks.
“They’re a first-rate program,” Elliott said. “It’s a huge outlet that’s well known for its consistent quality. They’re going to do a great job.”
Additionally, Elliott said the Wildcat Insiders will allow for more fans to assist the team.
“We already have the 12th man program, which has been great for us,” he said. “But that’s mostly composed of business people. We want to broaden our base and get every one involved.”
