New “Wilson X Connected Football” Provides High-Tech QB Training Tool To Improve Passing Performance

Wilson Sporting Goods has unveiled their new Wilson X Connected Football, an affordable way to track key quarterback metrics. Making use of bluetooth and smart phone technologies, the Wilson X Connected Football detects velocity, distance, spiral efficiency, spin rate and whether a pass was caught or dropped.

The game has evolved from ball control and “3 yards and a cloud of dust” to fast-paced, uptempo offenses using spread formations and run-pass options. Some may think this evolution is primarily due to better conditioning or a focus on getting the offense to the spot of the ball and the new line of scrimmage as fast as possible. But, streamlined communication is also extremely important.
