WESTMINSTER -- Precision Sports Devices announced it is working in partnership with FOX Sports Network’s lead college football analyst and former University of Colorado quarterback Joel Klatt to introduce a product that will revolutionize football training.
One of the foremost experts in college football, Klatt will serve as a spokesman through a marketing agreement for QBit, a patented training device designed to improve passing game performance for quarterbacks.
Although production hasn’t yet started, Precision said a manufacturing agreement is in place with Denver Plastics and prototype testing is planned for December 2017 at the University of Colorado.
The wearable sports technology gauges the actual lateral head position relative to optimal lateral head position, measuring against the horizontal axis, in conjunction with a digital interface application.
The QBit device was developed by Dave Churchman, a sporting goods professional with decades of executive-level sales and marketing success in growing mutually-profitable businesses for both the manufacturer and retailer.
Churchman has represented industry icons including New Balance, Adidas, Russell Athletic, and Puma as well as led strategy for some of America’s most notable retail brands, including Bass Pro Shops, Famous Footwear, Boulder Running Company, Sports Authority, Academy Sports+Outdoors and Cabela’s.
“This device encourages behavioral habits that will make a quarterback a more effective passer in the practice environment, which translates to better game performance,” said Churchman.
“We think individual performance improvement in a team sports setting is the next frontier for wearable digitals. It’s about training, not tracking – apps are great for analyzing data, but they don’t help you win – this technology helps a team win by redirecting behavior through game-changing innovation.
“We’re honored to have Joel on our team and look forward to his involvement in the product development process.”
Considered one of the most productive players to have ever played the quarterback position at the University of Colorado, Klatt set 44 school records as a quarterback from 2002-2005.
“This concept and design can actually train, in real time, the eyes of a quarterback to develop a deeper understanding of the position and team-specific concepts,” said Klatt.
“Simply put, it belongs on as many quarterbacks as possible, regardless of age or experience level."
