INSiiGHTS is a Tallahassee idea, formed and created to enhance sports stories to give an insightful view of inside occurrences. The brain thrust behind the concept is former collegiate basketball coach and administrator, Mickey Clayton. Mickey himself a 1975 FAMU graduate enlisted the help of some of his friends to develop a sports talk show that has now evolved into a local high school sports production that recently telecast their 100th television show on WCTV2. All of INSiiGHTS shows featuring over 200 high school games can be found on the INSiiGHTS YouTube page where all the games and live-streams can be found and are free.
INSiiGHTS Sports is a local company that concentrates on programs in the South Georgia and North Florida region. It is an example the vision of Mickey Clayton, collaborating with Gerald Tookes, Clayton Smith, Alvin Hollins, Jeff Walker and Sharon Bee (all from the Tallahassee area) to forge what is currently Florida’s longest running high school sports television show.
The support of local television entity, WCTV2 has been critical in providing an opportunity for the start-up company to host their content. Local sponsors have bought into the idea of supporting the events that feature the high school students and programs. Cumulus radio as a part of the community has always assisted with the promotion of INSiiGHTS events that recognize and support the high school and middle school students.
INSiiGHTS has their Third Annual Dr. Arthur Woodard Academic Student of the Game Award Dinner on May 6th to recognize nearly 35 students and their parents. INSiiGHTS and the sponsor of this event, the Woodard Foundation of Miami take great pride in having only one recognition award and that it’s for the student with the Highest Academic Award and community participation selected by the participating high school.
INSiiGHTS continues to give back by the creation of it’s Jimmy Sauls Leadership Academy. The second year of the Academy that utilizes presenters from the community to speak to high school and middle school students about various topics to guide, inspire and motivate to higher levels of accomplishment. The Leon County Sheriff Department and Sheriff Walt McNeil along with Tallahassee Northside Kiwanis have been prime supporters of this endeavor to help the youth of the community.
INSiiGHTS hosted the first ever Mack Clayton Memorial Basketball Tournament in Daytona Beach during this past Thanksgiving break for high school boys and girls basketball teams. Thomasville High boys, Florida High girls and the Godby girls were a part of the initial tournament.
INSiiGHTS also completed their first ever basketball clinic, the second weekend in April in its quest to educate basketball enthusiasts into techniques, theories and applications in the game of basketball. INSiiGHTS again reached into the community and highlighted past and current coaches to serve as presenters; Gene Granger from Maclay High School, Claudette Farmer, Rickards Athletic Director and former head coach at Florida A&M University, Ahmad Aliyy former girls head coach at FAMU High School and Mickey Clayton former head men’s coach and head women’s coach at Florida A&M University.
This is a local production that has generated a lot of support from the greater Tallahassee and South Georgia community. It is an example of a program that shows what a community can do to support use athletics to highlight its students and work to support each other.
April 6 will be a milestone for INSiiGHTS. Our one hundredth televised show will be shown on WCTV2. The History of INSiiGHTS will be shown along with some of INSiiGHTS most popular shows over the years. Tune in to see the shows and the beginning of INSiiGHTS.

The INSiiGHTS High School Game-of-the-Week Series is completing it’s third television season by producing nearly 100 weeks of games that were shown on WCTV2, a local CBS affiliate in Tallahassee, Florida. This channel is accessed with and without cable affiliations and when combined are shown in over 200,000 homes in the north Florida - south Georgia area.
We are currently into Season III of our series. Our coverage area is expanding as we went into the Daytona area this season and Jacksonville the previous year. We are also going into South Florida area to show high school sports to our nationwide audience.
The Game of the Week Series features but are not limited to football contests, as we also livestream and televise boy's and girl's basketball, baseball and softball. We have also shown Special Olympics contests, and Middle School Championships in football, boy's and girl's basketball, and boys soccer.
Our growth and expansion is consistent with our mission statement, “To provide opportunities for student-athletes to be exposed to the community and to encourage them to strive for academic and professional success.”
The INSiiGHTS team is responsible for filming and producing the selected athletic events at no-cost to the institutions. The games are then shown on a tape delay basis on television. The contests will also be shown on INSiiGHTS social media platforms and all games are found on our INSiiGHTS You Tube page.
INSiiGHTS is concerned with more than the athletic side of these students. This is shown in the awarding of ONE game award. That award is the Dr. Arhtur Woodard Student of the week Award. This recognition is given to the student-athlete with the highest grade point average andcomuunity involvement as selected by their respective high schools. The individual student is recognized during the telecast. The Woodard Foundation of Miami, Florida along with INSiiGHTS recognizes these individual students and their family at a season ending award dinner at Studio 13. We feel it is important to recognize their academic achievements even more than their athletic prowess.
This years banquet will be on Monday, May 6th.
In addition, INSiiGHTS has developed a vehicle to help in the development of the total student-athlete, the Jimmy Sauls Leadership Academy. In our attempt to help the student-athletes at our INSiiGHTS schools we have a slate of presenters who have speciality in various topics. These individuals speak to the students in an array of topics that vary from student group tp student group. The speakers talk on areas that range from domestic violence, sexual abuse, alcoholism, drug abuse, influence of others, law enforcement relations, consequences of social media, interviewing techniques, career counseling and more. Sheriff Walt McNeil and the Leon County Sheriff's Department are sponsors of this activity. They have been very influential in the year to year growth of the Jimmy Sauls Leadership Academy.
