Careful. All highlight films are just that: highlights. They don't show the missed assignments, the times they made bad decisions, getting trucked by a DB or arm-tackled, etc. Every highlight film like this shows the only star play from a game or maybe two from a game to get fans excited; they are not what coaches are looking for and not really representative of the player's ability. 

My kid wants to be recruited and coaches say they want several plays from one game against tough competition, then another group against a different tough team, another group, etc. They are looking for consistency against excellent competition, not just the one-and-done single star play -- any player can do that once or twice a game. They want to know that the player consistently produces excellence several times a game against excellent competition. Part of a highlight package that includes several skills may be a hard shot on goal that misses for example, but the coach can see what the kid tried to do. There's a big difference between highlight reels for fans vs highlight reels for coaches. YouTube is full of highlight reels for fans.
