“We are very excited to make pieces of Lehigh history available to our passionate fans and alumni,” said Jeff Tourial, Lehigh Director of Broadcast & Multimedia. “We’ve wanted to be able to provide our fans with a piece of the action they could take home with them, something they can keep for all time. With the addition of the DVD store on our web site, we think we’ve been able to do that.”
Available are games from the past six decades - and a special list of all the "Goodman 20" specials from last season packaged with a special interview with Murray Goodman himself.
On the football side alone there are more than 100 games - including never-before-seen footage of games as far back as 1958 from sideline game films. There are plans in the works to convert even more game films to DVD as well over the next couple of months, so if a game you want to buy is unavailable, don't worry - the folks at Lehigh are in an ongoing process to archive game films. (If there's a specific game you're looking for, I bet if you email email@example.com you may be able to find out if it's slated to be converted.)
The 1977 D-II championship is not available because somebody else owns the rights to that game (which was broadcast by ABC). Some Lehigh/Lafayette games were also telecast by ESPN, so they own the rights to those games as well. But there are still many, many games that are available.
I think it's worth emphasizing the historic nature of this effort - no other school has done anything this extensive with their game films, and it's really great to see that Lehigh cares so much about their broadcast history that they've made this archive and made it available for fans to purchase.
The link to the DVD store at LehighSports.Com is here, and I'd encourage you to check it out for yourself.
