BOULDER -- The Collegiate Sports Video Association named Jamie Guy, Director of Sports Video for the University of Colorado, the 2011-12 Pac-12 Video Coordinator of the Year.
Guy was selected by a majority vote of his peers in the Collegiate Sports Video Association to receive the Pac-12 Video Coordinator of the Year honor. He is now a finalist for the prestigious Bob Matey National Video Coordinator of the Year award, which will be announced at the annual CSVA banquet on May 17, 2012.
The Bob Matey Award is presented to the Video Coordinator who displays innovation, determination, perseverance, and technical skill as portrayed by the late Bob Matey, legendary Video Coordinator from Texas A&M.
Jamie Guy is in his eighth year as CU’s Director of Sports Video and his 11th year overall on the Colorado staff, as he joined the department in July 2001. He was promoted to his current position in the fall of 2004 after working just over three years as the assistant director.
Guy, 36, came to CU from the Chicago Enforcers of the now-defunct XFL, where he worked the lone season of the league’s existence.
He was twice selected as the Video Coordinator of the Year in the Big 12 Conference, first in 2005-06 and again in 2009-10. The awards are coordinated and voted by members of the Collegiate Sports Video Association; members of each conference select the winner for their respective leagues, and the recipients are placed on the national ballot for the overall CSVA award.
He graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1998 with a bachelor’s degree in general studies. As a student, he worked in the Bearcats’ sports video office for four years. Prior to entering the sports video profession, he worked as an electrician’s apprentice and as a staff manager at Fitworks Fitness.
Born March 18, 1975 in Cincinnati, Ohio, he graduated from Lawrence Central High School (Indianapolis, Ind.) in 1994, where he lettered in track and football. His hobbies include collecting football memorabilia and playing the guitar. He is married to the former Kimberly Ernst.
