Technology Changing The Game of Football

When it comes to tracking football players whether for a coaching staff or a fan, the NFL and major college football has many tools at its disposal.

Fans can track their favorite athletes through team specific apps or major sports apps and websites. For coaches looking to track their players to monitor their stats or plays, they have sophisticated technology such as RFID technology from Zebra Sports Solutions or a Sideline Viewing System on the Microsoft Surface. Technology is shaping the game of football like never before.

A lot of that technology comes with a heavy cost that only professional teams or big college teams can afford. For coaches and players at the youth league level, that technology is not always an option, either due to cost or just not being the right fit for such a young athlete.

One app is looking to change that. The app is called Stat Row. This app is specifically built for youth and high school sports. The app is free in Google Play and the App Store.

The app is great for fans, it allows them to interact with each other from anywhere in the country. Fans or players can upload photos and videos, track scores and make comments. The players can save videos and share them with recruiters and scouts as well. If you are a busy parent and are not able to make every game, this app allows you to keep track of the game no matter where you are at. The app and website look polished and gives fans a new app to try.
