Joe Lindsey of Wired talked with STATS CTO Darryl Lewis about the impact that data has on football performance and how to unleash that data into meaningful information, analysis and athlete monitoring.
“Ultimately, data science will make the NFL a much more competitive game. STATS’ Lewis is eager for the ability to break down the magic that occurs along the line of scrimmage, for instance. What right now looks like a jumble of big bodies smashing together is actually a very complex art, he says. And that’s the issue: it’s an art, which needs some science applied to it.”
