Bremen grad Wagner named SEC Video Coordinator of the Year
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Bremen High School graduate Andy Wagner was recently named the Southeastern Conference Video Coordinator of the Year by the Collegiate Sports Video Association for his work with the University of Arkansas football team.
As SEC winner, Wagner is now a finalist to be named the Bob Matey National Video Coordinator of the Year at the 18th Annual Collegiate Sports Video Conference May 14-17 in Indianapolis.
Wagner is in his fifth season with the Razorbacks as the Director of Sports Video.
Under Wagner’s direction, the university’s video department streamlined its network to give coaches and players open access to game film as well as giving coaches instant access to recruiting film online. As part of his efforts, Wagner has overseen the redesign of the video room in the Broyles Center and upgrades to equipment in all player meeting rooms.
Additionally, Wagner helped develop the Petrino Plan app released in 2011 for the iPad, iPhone and Android platforms, and he was a key developer of Arkansas’ first recruiting website ‘Thisisarkansasfootball.com’, both award-winning ventures.
Wagner arrived at Arkansas after spending eight years with the Jacksonville Jaguars following a two-year stint as an intern with the Indianapolis Colts beginning in the summer of 1998.
After graduating from Bremen, Wagner attended Butler University, where he earned a Bachelor’s of Science in telecommunications in 1999. He and his wife Karen now live in Springdale, Ark. with daughters Katelyn, 6, and Makenzie, 4.
