Inside the technology giving Alabama a competitive edge

Ask anyone what moment from <a href="">Amara Darboh Authentic Jersey</a> the 2015 College Football Playoff national championship game sticks out to them and they would likely say the onside <a href="">Andrew Whitworth Youth Jersey</a> kick that swung the momentum in <a href="">DeMarcus Ware Youth Jersey</a> Alabama's favor. It was surprising, gutsy and so <a href="">Ryan Allen Jersey</a> incredibly perfect.
But present the same question <a href="">Devin McCourty Authentic Jersey</a> to the principal figures <a href=""> attached to the Crimson Tide's medical and training staffs and they'll <a href=""> all give a different answer. They'll mention the 95-yard kickoff return by <a href=""> Kenyan Drake that pushed Alabama's lead into the double digits during the fourth quarter of a 45-40 victory over Clemson. To them, it was validating, gratifying and <a href=""> inspiring.
In a span of 14 seconds -- the time it took Drake to <a href=""> catch the ball, begin his run, make a <a href=""> hard cut to his left, outrace the coverage to the far sideline, jet upfield and eventually dive across the goal line -- Alabama team physician Norman Waldrop and his colleagues had witnessed technology's impact on college football's most prominent football program.
As Drake was making his mad dash to the end zone, a small 3.8-inch device housed in the back of the running back's shoulder pads captured him sprinting at <a href=""> a top-end speed of 22.05 miles per hour. Drake had never run that fast, not even before the gruesome left-ankle injury he suffered against Ole Miss in October 2014. In fact, no Tide player had reached that velocity in the previous two years.
