Christmas may be weeks past, but the girls basketball team recently received a nice present. The Woodlands of Austintown donated a 65-inch smart TV to Canfield High School, continuing their generous support of local high school sports.

The new smart TV will be installed the Canfield girl's locker room and used to review game plays and athlete performance. While it is a very useful tool for the girls basketball team and coaches, its use will be felt among all CHS girls sports.

"This is a TV that will enable all of the female sports to be able to watch game film in a setting with a large amount of space," said Coach Matt Reel.

He said prior to this gift, he was among the lucky coaches. Since he teaches math at the high school, his classroom has a smart board. He would have to take the team to his classroom to be able to use it.

"I personally would have to take our team and sit in desks in my classroom," he said. "The clarity of using a Smart Board is not great for watching film. Most of the other programs have coaches that are not teachers so it is sometimes tough for them to have access to watch film."

It was through one of the girls basketball team player's parents that the donation was made possible. Reel said the snow days and changing game schedule has made installation of the new television a little "problematic", but he is hoping to have it up and running soon.

Reel said many of the larger Division I schools Canfield plays uses the locker room big screen to review plays and better the program.

"[The] Division 1 schools we travel to play or scrimmage in the Canton/Akron area have this," he said. "I would guess not many programs in our area have this but I do not know that fact for sure."
