Kerry Martin has been the Video Coordinator for Laurier Football since 2007. In that time, he has led the building of a technology platform that transitioned game film from VHS tapes to a modern, scalable video analysis solution.
In his role, he ensures that the coaching staff and players have the technology and tools they need to pursue excellence on the field. Notable technology accomplishments include the implementation of professional video solutions from DVSport that give coaches extensive data analysis capabilities and allow coaches and players to access game film anytime and in more meaningful ways. He also introduced a solution with SkyCoach to provide live, in-game video replay to coaches in the press box and on the sideline.
Kerry works with all OUA teams to elevate league video resources and game film exchange while continuously updating his skills, knowledge and contacts for better personal performance. He relies heavily on a wonderful crew of video assistants in order to coordinate all practice, in game and out of season filming, data input and technology needs.
In 2014, Kerry received the Earl C. Shelley Unsung Hero Award from Laurier Athletics for his behind the scenes work with Football.
Kerry is also the General Merchandise Manager in Retail Services at Wilfrid Laurier University. He is responsible for all things purple and gold as well as other products and services that support students in all campus store locations.
In his personal life, Kerry and his wife Heidi live near Waterloo and they have four children: Brady (9), Carter (7), Summer (5) and Tanner (3).
