Madi Trimble is great at making videos to energize a team and spark player interest.
But there was a time when she thought about leaving trending videos behind.
Trimble, a junior from North Carolina State University, works for Pack Athletics and the Mooresville Spinners baseball team.
Her video journey began at Bandys High School, where Trimble English teacher Leslie McIntosh asked her to join the yearbook team. Trimble said she was hesitant, but joined because of McIntosh’s support.
Trimble soon found itself manufacturing “hype videos” for Friday night football team games. Trimble, along with Caleb Muckler and Noah Estes, made up the Bandys Film team. Together they made a basketball video, a spring sports video and a senior graduation video for the class of 2019.
