What happened to the Twitter links on Idahosports.com?

Sorry, this not necessarily just a football post, but the running board of links, had some great info and updates. Is it still accessible somewhere?

I was wondering the same thing and would like them back... You can do a google search on #idpreps and then filter by latest and you can see them. But, having them on the front page of Idahosports.com was convenient.

This one wasn't our fault. One day a couple of weeks ago I noticed the #idpreps twitter feed wasn't showing up so I figured they changed some code in their widget or something. Unfortunately, they no longer allow those types of widgets so it just disappeared. I guess they actually officially ended it in July but ours kept working until a couple of weeks ago for some reason.

That's too bad. Thanks for the clarification Paul. Sure appreciate all you do.

The best I can do is suggest that you follow @idahosports and #idpreps on Twitter.

  • @Shane Prince I have a ring of College Recruiters that are always looking for that star athlete. I send them Information on the players that I coach who have mentioned that they wish to play at the next level. In the past, I have submitted about 7 players from my team, another 3-4 from Sugar-Salem to try to help those kids out and the random one or two that follow me on twitter to help get their name out there. I don't have many connections at the moment, but they include, Colorado State University, University of Northern Colorado , Air Force Academy, School of Mines (Colorado), Fort Lewis (Colorado), University of Wyoming, University of Nevada Las Vegas, University of Idaho and Idaho State University. University of Idaho has recently changed their recruiting coordinator and my connection at Idaho State has moved on, but I am sure I could find their replacements. If you know of any excellent athletes, that would like to play at the next level, please reply with their information here. If you could include the following information, it would be greatly beneficial: Name High School High School Size (5A-1AD2) Positions Height and Weight Wingspan Vertical 40 Time Bench - Squat - Clean - Max (3 reps) Senior Year Stats (If the athlete was injured most of the year, include Junior year Stats) Also include both a teaser highlight reel and a full highlight reel. A teaser reel is what college coaches mostly watch. It is your biggest plays and also biggest side plays (Blocking as a WR or RB for key plays of others) and is no longer than about 1-2 minutes. When recruiters see what they like in the teaser reel, they will normally watch the full 4-5 min highlight reel to see the rest of your capabilities. Do not include any contact or academic information . If the recruiters like what they see, they have the means of contacting the recruits high school and coach or AD to get this information on their own. They will also get information on academics at this time from the coach or AD, so don't post the kids GPA or Test Scores. This is purely to help get more athletes noticed from the Great State of Idaho. Even if only a few players get contacted, it will have been a success. Thank you. Coach Newell
  • What high school seniors do we have this year that are planning on playing at the next level? It seems that we have a lot of kids going to smaller schools as well as some playing division 1 football every year. I would love to know who we have going where so I can continue to watch and support our Idaho boys.
