Though sports content is a crucial staple of “traditional” TV, there are plenty of moments that sportscasters don’t get the time to dwell on on air. That’s where YouTube comes in, as a place for those moments to get their due watch-time. Highlights, commentary, and debates all have their place on the video platform, especially when it comes to more niche topics in sports entertainment like boxing and even gossip.

YouTube is also a great place for rising athletes to show off their talent. Of these emerging talents, one chronicles the plays of an extremely talented, young football player. Of course, products make their fair share of appearances as well, from sneakers to equipment.

Check out the below for some of the top emerging sports channels on YouTube, found and ranked by Openslate‘s Emerging Talent Tracker tool.
