Football's Chase Bitowf Named C-USA Video Coordinator of the Year
Now a finalist for the national award
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The College Sports Video Association has announced that Southern Miss' Chase Bitowf is its C-USA Video Coordinator of the Year. His honor also puts him in contention for the Bob Matey National Video Coordinator of the Year, which will be voted on and presented at the conference in May in Atlanta.
"I'm fired up about it," Bitowf said. "It's a reflection of a lot of hard work. I wouldn't be where I am without the team, and it's a reflection of them as well. I love what I do. One of the main reasons I do coaches' video is to be a part of something bigger than myself."
The organization is the video equivalent of the AFCA, and all honors are voted on by league video coordinators.
Bitowf came to Southern Miss in 2015 after a one-year stint at Mississippi State, where he was part of the Orange Bowl squad that at one point ranked No. 1 in the nation. For the past two years, he has also been the video director at the NFL Regional Combine in New Orleans. Bitowf is a 2011 graduate of West Alabama, where he played linebacker.
It is not Bitowf's first recognition from CSVA, having won the Billy Vizzini Scholarship in 2014.
