It didn't take long for Lincoln-based Agile Sports, the company behind Hudl, to make another huge splash around what they're building on the Silicon Prairie!

Today, Inc. Magazine released it's annual 30 Under 30 list recognizing the nation's leading young entrepreneurs under the age of 30. As a team, the three founders of Agile Sports made the list: David Graff, John Wirtz, and Brian Kaiser, Founders of Agile Sports.

This is an amazing honor for the Agile Sports team and our community here on the Silicon Prairie for it's the first time a Nebraska company has made the list.

You may remember, a few months ago we shared another piece of quality coverage the company received: Robert Scoble of building43 talks video editing with Agile Sports.

When I think about their success, the first thing that comes to mind is the awesome team they've assembled here in Nebraska.

Agile Sports has grown from three co-founders in 2006 to 20 employees today, and whether it's the technology, marketing or sales department, you can tell the entire team is 100% bought into the company's vision. They are focused on growing their presence while at the same time providing exemplary customer service.

I spoke with Brian on what the honor means to him and the team:

Congratulations to the entire Hudl team! We look forward to covering your continued success.

Congrats on making the list! Seeing your names next to people like Naveen from Foursquare and Gary Tan from Posterous has got to make you proud of the work you're doing. It's great to see you doing well, and still doing it on the prairie.
