Ottway Ducard stashed this in Football
Stanford Football today ushers in a new era with iPad playbooks for the 2012 season. With the start of the Cardinal's fall training camp, each Stanford player and coach is receiving an iPad outfitted with a digital playbook powered by Denver-based partner PlayerLync. Five professional teams in the NFL are currently equipped through the same partnership, and Stanford is proud to be the first in college football to take this leap forward in operational efficiency, cost reduction and environmental responsibility.
"It's exciting and an honor to be the first university in the nation to partner with PlayerLync," says Bradford M. Freeman Director of Football David Shaw. "Being at the forefront of technology that can help us do our jobs better and help our player learn better, while at the same time being environmentally conscious and cost effective, is part of what Stanford is all about. Stanford University provides our scholar-athletes with the best tools on and off the field to excel at the highest level."
"We are proud to team up with Stanford in taking the technology lead in the NCAA," says PlayerLync Co-Founder, President and CEO Bob Paulsen. "We know that Coach Shaw did his research in choosing the best tools available for the team. By combining PlayerLync's industry leading platform with the talent and intelligence of the Cardinal football organization, Stanford is in exceptional position to continue their tradition of success for many years to come."
