New technology aids players preparing for combine- Nick Herceg

At the TEST Football Academy, players are using technology to prepare for the upcoming NFL Combine. Players can see their growth through the different devices available at TEST. Players are changing the way they prepare for workouts using the devices provided by TEST. The best part of the article focused on Tennessee Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger. He came to TEST with an ACL injury that ended his collegiate career. With the help of people and technology at TEST, Mettenberger was able to take the field for his pro day four months after his injury, and was drafted by the Titans in the sixth round. The larger takeaway I had from this story was that technology is helping players recover and helping them get back on the field quicker, something players previously turned to drugs for that same kind of help.
