Virtual Reality practice: Future of football comes to Canton
CANTON Gripping the football with his left hand, Kekahi Graham set his feet, found his receiver and threw a sleek spiral.
When the pass fell incomplete, the 14-year-old from Honolulu grunted and scolded himself.
Graham, an All-American middle school quarterback who participated in last week’s Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 2018 Football Academy, was demonstrating the Hall’s newest attraction: QB SIM, a virtual-reality tool from Sports VTS.
Its creators hope that QB SIM, which will be available during the Pro Football Hall of Fame festivities, will be a big part of the future in training football players.
Brian DeLong, Sports VTS chief technical officer, said QB SIM was inspired by Ted Sundquist, the company’s CEO and a former general manager with the NFL’s Denver Broncos.
