TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- It was hot and it was muggy and it was a Friday in the middle of summer, all of which should've been enough to strangle any enthusiasm from a group of Florida State's skill-position players running through offseason drills with the team's strength-and-conditioning staff last week. But as freshman tailbackDalvin Cookeased to a stop after an obviously impressive 40-yard sprint, a mad scientist on the sideline with his face buried in a laptop had everyone's attention.

AP Photo/Don Juan MooreFlorida State receiver Rashad Greene has seen the benefits of the technology both on and off the field.
The man is Chris Jacobs, an honest-to-goodness rocket scientist tasked with monitoring every movement the Seminoles make in practice and in the weight room. Jacobs had worked as a propulsion engineer with the space program before government cutbacks forced him out of the job, but a timely meeting with a member of Florida State's booster club brought him here.
The players call him "Rocket Man." Jacobs' computer is fueled by data that arrive in real time, courtesy of GPS monitors the players wear in specially designed straps across their chests -- sports bras the team has renamed "bros" -- that track everything from acceleration rates to heart rates and, most important to the dozens of Seminoles patiently waiting for official results, speed.

Twenty-two point eight, Jacobs confirms, and history is made. Cook's top speed during his 40-yard dash -- 22.8 mph -- pushed him past veteran receiverRashad Greenefor the team's best mark, and the other players quickly offered congratulations to the rookie. Greene, too, was impressed, but also inspired.

For players who just won a national championship by setting offensive records and winning every game by an average of nearly 40 points, this is the value of those GPS devices. They provide the benchmark for a juggernaut for which the biggest challenge comes by competing against itself.

"He beat my record," Greene said. "So I've got to go get him on Monday."

If the players see the monitoring system mostly as a souped-up speedometer, Florida State's coaching staff knows better. For the coaches, it's the technology that has undercut conventional wisdom by providing immediate feedback on every facet of a player's exertion on the field, opening the door to a new way of running practice and designing a program.

"It's not the reason you win," coach Jimbo Fisher said. "But it takes a lot of the guesswork out of how your team is feeling, how individuals are performing and how you moderate practice."

[+] Enlarge[​IMG]
Courtesy of Catapult SportsFlorida State first learned of the GPS technology from an Aussie rules football team.
Four years ago, Erik Korem and Joe Danos, who were FSU a.ssistants at the time, brought the idea to Fisher after seeing the devices used by an Australian rules football team. The Australian company that makes them, Catapult Sports, had never had an American football client, but Fisher was quickly sold on the possibilities of designing highly specialized training programs for his athletes that promised increased production and fewer injuries.
"He knew at some point in time, we were going to be ready to face the best of the best, and we had to be a little bit different," head strength coach Vic Viloria said. "His little bit different turned out to be really, really impressive."

Still, there were some immediate concerns. The GPS monitors aren't cheap. Florida State began with 30, which Catapult rented to the team for about $25,000 per year, according to the school's records. In the wake of the Seminoles' national title in January, the team has expanded its use to 95 monitors beginning this spring.

The cost is dwarfed by the sheer scope of information the devices provide. Each GPS monitor returns about 1,000 unique data points per second, which for 95 players practicing for a few hours a day amounts to an overwhelming amount of information for coaches to dissect. Florida State now employs two a.ssistants working full-time hours -- Jacobs and Kratik Malhotra, a data analyst with a degree in electronics engineering -- just to sift through the numbers.

But the most immediate concern was that Florida State was entering uncharted waters. There was no instruction manual for how to apply the devices' output toward American football and no baseline for success.

"We had to educate ourselves on what we were really looking at," Fisher said. "There's a lot of learning. It's not like they print it out and say, 'Do this.'"

The first two years were largely trial and error, a time to collect data and test a.ssumptions. As Jacobs explained, the staff "stepped on a lot of land mines" early on.

Catapult offered help in understanding the data, but it was up to Florida State to decide how to use it. That took time.

"It's an investment in patience more than anything," said Gary McCoy, one of Catapult's sports scientists based in the U.S. Once a plan was in place, however, the results were immense.

Florida State's run to a national championship last year hinged greatly on an unusually low number of injury casualties, which Fisher hardly chalks up to luck. With information gleaned from the GPS devices, Florida State virtually eliminated soft-tissue injuries -- muscle pulls and strains -- and Fisher adjusted the team's practice schedules to reduce midweek workload and ensure his team peaked on Saturdays. The more FSU's coaches learned about the data delivered by the GPS systems, the more the team's conditioning and practices could be tailored to the specific needs of each player.

As Florida State unraveled the potential of the GPS system, others have been quick to follow suit. Five of the Seminoles' a.ssistants have been hired away, including Korem, now with Kentucky, and Danos, now a strength coach with the NFL's New York Giants. There are at least 14 NFL teams using the technology, and a small cadre of affluent college programs have followed suit.

But although they all have access to Catapult's hardware, none has perfected the recipe for using the data quite like Florida State.

"We're OK talking about this," Viloria said, "because everyone else is just learning how to turn the things on."

Jacobs' office is situated in a hallway that bisects Florida State's recently renovated locker room and its state-of-the-art weight room. On a desk next to his computer sit rows of GPS devices; lights flickering like slot machines while they charge. On a white board hanging from the wall, complex algorithms are sketched out in red ink.

"I've got all sorts of goodies in my head I've already started rolling on," Jacobs said. "It's what we nerd types do."

Of course, the transition from vector curls on a white board to concise reports on Fisher's desk is a crucial ingredient in using the information Florida State is collecting on its players, and the language of rocket scientists doesn't easily translate to coachspeak. Viloria acts as the interpreter. He has made small tweaks, such as converting the output from metric to standard measurements, and has developed complex formulas to help coaches turn the myriad data into concise goals for the coming day's practice.
But although he's a staunch advocate for the GPS systems now, Viloria was hardly an easy convert. After 15 years training football players, Viloria knew how to coach athletes without spreadsheets, and letting math nerds behind the curtain of the jock culture was anathema to the old guard.

"I didn't want to tell a coach that's been doing something for 30 years that he's wrong," Viloria said. "I didn't want to find out that what I'd been doing was wrong."

As it turned out, the GPS devices had the opposite effect. The data didn't uncover any stunning secrets but instead gave Viloria the evidence he needed to better deploy plans he already had embraced. Each day after practice, players drop their monitors off to be downloaded. Jacobs and Malhotra sift through the output and filter out the most significant numbers -- max speeds, total distance, player workload, high-impact change of direction and myriad other measurables -- creating reports that illustrate the physical cost of that day's practice.

Those numbers are passed along to Viloria, who translates the information to Fisher, who then lays out his expectations for the next day's practice. Together, Viloria and Fisher create a detailed plan for each period of each practice using the metrics they've established through years of data collection. For the always-demanding head coach, that often means scaling back what he asks from his players.

"It's against a lot of the thinking you do as a coach," Fisher said. "But the results talk to you as if it's a doctor."

Two years ago, Fisher was troubled by an obvious gap between Greene's routinely impressive practice performances and the receiver's inconsistent numbers on game days. He wanted answers, so he pressed his conditioning staff. It turned out the problem wasn't with Greene. It was with the practices. Greene was Florida State's most refined receiver, so when Fisher would grow agitated with poor routes or dropped balls by other players, he would ask Greene to illustrate the proper form. Again and again, Greene would run a route or catch a pass, and his workload mounted. The GPS device offered clear-cut data that showed Greene was simply doing too much.

Fisher responded by lightening Greene's reps on Wednesdays and Thursdays to ensure a productive Saturday. "My legs were with me in every game last year," said Greene, who set career highs with 76 catches, 1,128 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013.

Little changes in the practice routine can have massive effects on the bottom line of player health, Viloria said. Running laps used to be punishment for poor performance, but now Florida State's staff understood that extra work was just as likely to create more problems the next day.

Of course, the flip side is true, too. As much as players are eager to see results of sprints at practice, the GPS devices can quickly expose those who are slacking. Viloria gets the data in real time and lets coaches know when it's time to crack the whip. In strength training, Viloria said, it's easy to test a player's limits and prescribe a routine. On the practice field, however, effort often was measured by simply asking a player how he felt and recovery times were set uniformly for everyone on the field.

"Historically, there was no way to get a max for what a typical Tuesday is [at practice]," Viloria said. "Now we can do that for every single athlete we have."

This summer's new arrivals at Florida State will get their introductions to the rocket scientist and the GPS monitors this week, and the staff has a unique greeting in mind.

"We're going to make them run," Jacobs said. Coaches will monitor each new freshman to get baselines to prescribe training routines and compare against future results. The process, Jacobs said, has been refined to a science at Florida State.

McCoy was at a meeting with a professional basketball team in New York last week when he got the question he always gets from prospective clients. They want to know who's using the data the best, and McCoy's answer is always Florida State. From the prescriptive practice plans to the unique design of their "bros," FSU's deployment of the technology is the gold standard, having taken Catapult's basic analytics and expanded upon it by leaps and bounds.


It's their secret sauce. If they continue to scout well and they continue to use this model, they're going to build a dynasty out of this. There's no question.

”-- Catapult sports scientist Gary McCoy"It's their secret sauce," McCoy said. "If they continue to scout well and they continue to use this model, they're going to build a dynasty out of this. There's no question."
But Florida State isn't interested in simply continuing with its model. It's working every day to build upon it. Beyond the reams of data sent along to the coaching staff, Jacobs is compiling mountains of information for side projects. He calls it his "black ops."

He's working on a formula to identify players who are at risk for concussions; a potentially monumental advancement for a sport whose very future is threatened by the risk of head injuries. Although the GPS devices are banned from use during games, it is those kinds of advancements that could persuade the NCAA to reverse course.

Fisher said that the devices have already saved a half dozen of his players from heat stroke and that the personalized practice plans allow athletes to stay sharp when their focus turns to academics, too.

"This has been a total culture change," Viloria said. "For [Fisher] to do this, it's beyond cutting edge. He's changed the game."

Fisher has toed the line between championing the progress and protecting his trade secrets, but Florida State has clearly benefited from the emerging hype. Recruits are impressed; the NFL has taken notice; and a program that was languishing in stale traditions five years ago is at the forefront of a brave new world in college football.

For Greene, however, the formula is still pretty simple. The rocket scientist with the laptop is tracking his every move, but it's still Greene who gets to feed the machine.

"We see Rocket Man every day on the field," Greene said, "and we can't wait to hear his voice."

To me, FSU's new defensive coordinator Charles Kelly was the surprise show-stealer of the coaching clinic.

I entered knowing very little about him and wondering if the Seminoles could weather being on their third DC in three years. After a couple of hours listening to Kelly and watching him interact with coaches -- even offering them his email address at one point -- it seemed obvious to me that the talented FSU D is still in very capable hands.
“That impressed me,” one coach told me afterward. “He’s not from (Texas) but acted like he’s been here for 40 years. That’s not easy. We like our own around here.”

It’s not surprising, but Kelly was effusive in his praise for Auburn coach Gus Malzahn, whom he ultimately helped best in the last BCS title game.

“People seem to think that these tempo offenses are soft,” Kelly told the clinic. “You line up against Auburn and tell me if you think they’re soft.”

After the slow start against the Tigers, Kelly said the Seminoles didn’t necessarily make any halftime adjustments. Rather, he said they merely cleaned up some of their alignment issues and put more focus on “eye discipline,” recognizing what Auburn was trying to do and then not getting out of position.

Maybe Kelly knew his audience, since Texas high schools mostly run tempo offenses, but he said he had no qualms with pace of play (unlike other defensive-minded coaches in his part of the country).

“I think it’s good for football,” Kelly said. “It gives us an opportunity. It makes things more competitive.”

He made the point that so few coaches make (or see): In the attempt to alter a defense’s rhythm, sometimes a fast-paced offense can undermine itself. Particularly, he said it can cause offenses to get in predictable down-and-distances -- which is always a defensive objective.

Pre-event Entry: FSU commit Brewton talks about proving the doubters wrong

I'm really excited about The Opening. I can't wait. I just want to dominate at my position, show why I'm one of the best players and show I can compete against the best. A lot of people say I'm a safety with cornerback skills, but I want to show I can compete with anyone and size doesn't mean anything.



FSU safety commitment Calvin Brewton is one of the participants at The Opening event.
This is my first time in Oregon, so it's going to be a great experience and also a time I can get to know other players to see how they got to that point. There are a lot of players I've never met, so to bond with all the top players is going to be fun.

This will be a stage to prove myself. I know some dropped me in the rankings when I got injured last year. I don't care about the rankings, but I do care about competition and being the best. It's motivation. I'm going to go out there and prove them wrong.

My first event this year was the Nike event in California where I won the best defensive back, but I'm about competing. I have the chance for people to see who I am on the national stage against elite players. You are either going to be the hammer or the nail and I plan on being that hammer.

I think it helps a lot that Derwin and I and a lot of the other Florida guys play in 7-on-7 competitions all the time. We play with some of the top guys in the state and I think the talent here is better than anywhere. So that talent gets us ready for this (event).

When playing 7-on-7, I have to bring a different mindset. For defensive backs, I have to adjust to playing man, press compared to playing off man on some guys. I can't play the same way for every receiver, so that's part of the adjustment. Some teams like to change their schemes on offense, so I can't press as much and change the coverage for the safeties.

On my team (Fly Rush), we have cornerback Kris Boyd. He's one of Florida State's top recruits. He is my main target for this weekend to recruit, that's my teammate. I know he's very high on FSU and he's feeling it with FSU and he talks about them a lot, so I'm working on him. Byron Cowart is also on our team, so I'm going to work on him too.

The Florida State commitments are going to put on a show. I just talked with De'Andre Johnson. He leaves early for the Elite 11 camp, but I know he's going to take over. We want to be at the top. I know Derwin wants to keep that No. 1 safety spot in the country. I want to get back up there too. Tyrek (Cole) wants to show he's the best cornerback around so we are ready.

Five star James plans to recruit hard in Oregon

I'm excited about playing at The Opening. I'm somewhat of a veteran playing at big events. Basically, I will go out and do what I know how to do and dominate. There's some adjustment I have to make with this event because there are guys I haven't faced. I really focus on what their strengths are and attacking, but I have to bring a different approach for certain receivers. What I do when I face them is try to attack their strengths and use it to my advantage. I find their strength and try to take it away.


Gene Williams - Warchant.com

FSU safety commitment Derwin James is also at The Opening event this week.
Some of the guys on my team (Mach Speed) are Ray Ray McCloud, Da'Vante Phillips, Minkah Fitzpatrick and Iman Marshall. I will make sure that Florida State is on their mind.

I've been talking a lot with Ray Ray McCloud. In my conversations, I got the impression that he's leaning towards us unless something changes. He really likes FSU a lot and said that he's going to take an official visit. He likes the atmosphere and the players. He said he really liked the locker rooms, so I'm working on him hard.

I've gone against Ray Ray a lot and he's probably the toughest match-up I've had. He's so quick and runs amazing routes and his first few steps are some of the fastest I've seen. He has soft hands. One mistake and he goes right by you.

This week, I want to target any guy that has Florida State in their top three, is starting to show a lot of interest lately, or thinking about visiting. I want to talk to them about visiting. Even if they might not like it, (I will just say) just give it a look because I know you wont be disappointed in what you have to see. Just check it out and see what it's about.

I know guys like Jacques Patrick, Ray Ray McCloud, obviously Tyrek Cole, Da'Vante Phillips, Deondre Francois, Calvin Ridley, George Campbell, Auden Tate, Jaquan Johnson and Tarvarus McFadden are all very high on Florida State, so those are some of the mains ones I'll talk with. I've talked with Francois a good amount lately. Deondre is usually pretty quiet. I always tell him I bet you are committing to us soon and he just smiles. I have a feeling it's going to be us.

I'm really excited about this class and I'm just trying to build this class to be amazing before we get on campus. So I'm doing everything I can to make that happen, letting everyone know about who the champions are and why FSU is the best place. I tell them "Let's do this together at Florida State."

This week me and De'Andre Johnson will be there and he has been recruiting hard, too. He's a great quarterback and I've played some receiver with him. You would think we have been playing on the same team for a while. Our timing is good. I'm cool with his dad, little brother and just his whole family.

De'Andre is one of the best quarterbacks I've seen this year. He's a very difficult quarterback to break down as a defensive back. What makes him tough is that I try to read the quarterbacks as a safety to see what strengths they have, but he does such a great job at looking off his receivers, going to a second or third option. He will look off a guy, but then already know where the other receiver is going to be and hit him. You can't read his eyes because he'll burn you in how he reads a coverage.

This week, more than 100 of the nation's top prospects will be at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. The four-day event features 1-on-1s, 7-on-7s and lineman challenges. Two of the event participants, Derwin James (five-star safety from Haines City) and Calvin Brewton (three-star safety from Miami Central) will chronicle their week in our 2014 The Opening Diary feature. (As told to Michael Langston)

Click here for a complete roster.

The players officially arrived on Monday afternoon in Oregon. The event is scheduled to kick off on Tuesday.

Brewton gets the roommate he wanted

"The trip to Oregon was a long one, I'll say that for sure. I can't complain about the weather over here though, it's very nice. Not much humidity at all and very comfortable, but man that was a long flight.

"When we first got here, we got all our gear and got a chance to talk to some media about the event. After we got done with that, we headed to the Nike headquarters to meet guys like De'Anthony Thomas, Tre Mason and Johnny Manziel. They talked about how this is going to be the best event and how we are going to be challenged.



FSU commit Calvin Brewton is ready to compete in The Opening.
"The Nike headquarters was crazy and very impressive. I saw they had a Bo Jackson area for all his gear, which was nice and all the awards he won. I also saw all the new stuff Nike has with shoes and the helmets and jerseys. It was pretty wild. We then had dinner and Trey Mason spoke. He talked about using social media the right way and making sure you are doing things the right way because you have a responsibility.

"Kris Boyd (FSU cornerback target) is my roommate. On Monday night, we spent time just getting to know each other. He's the guy I was focused on getting as a roommate because I got a chance to meet him at the FSU camp and wanted to be in his ear about the Noles. He's feeling FSU. I can tell. We have been talking about winning this tournament. One thing I noticed being around him is he's a pretty funny guy. He doesn't sugar coat anything. Our team has three FSU committments: Me, Deandre (Johnson) and Tyrek (Cole).

"Most of the Florida guys, mainly South Florida guys hung out with each other. I mostly hung out with Tyrek Cole, Calvin Ridley, Da'Vante Phillips, Jaquan Johnson, Kendrell McFadden, Jordan Scarlett, Derwin James and George Campbell. We all know each other well from 7-on-7 or them just being in-state. I spent the most time with Kris Boyd though and wanted him to feel comfortable around the rest of the guys.

"Later that night, we had a team 7-on-7 meeting. This is where you basically talk about strategy and the game plan, who is the captains of the team and how we are going to attack people tomorrow. We also talked about the need to stay hydrated because it's going to be a long day with a combine, but also the 7-on-7 later in the afternoon.

"Everyone is adjusting to the difference in time zones (Pacific time), so that's something we will need to adjust to. I'm going to need to do a lot of stretching before tomorrow because I haven't done a lot of workouts in a while, but I'll be ready.

"I know a lot of people think we talk about our colleges or where we are going, but really we talked about which 7-on-7 team is going to win. I think the team that is the best on paper going in is the "Mach Speed". That's Derwin's team and there is a lot of excitement about them. I mean they have at receiver Auden Tate, Da'Vante Phillips and Jovon Durante, so three really good receivers. They are going to be tough to beat. You look at their roster compared to everyone else's roster, it looks like a mismatch, but that's why they play the game.

"I think we have the best secondary with Kendall Sheffield, Kris Boyd, me and Stephen Johnson. Being around Tyrek is good since we know each other so well that will help on the field."


James already on the recruiting prowl, named captain

"On the flight over, I sat right next to Jacques Patrick, who I always talk with. Me, Jacques, Cecil Cherry and Deondre Farrier.



Derwin James was named team captain.
"I'm really excited to be here in Oregon. I love competition, so this is a perfect setting for me. Our team is pretty loaded. I think we have a great shot at winning this thing. I want that Championship.

"When we got here on Monday, we got a lot of our Nike gear, but then me and George Campbell had to go back and do some photo shoots today and model our uniforms at the ceremony. They get all the captains the model the uniforms for everyone. I'm the captain for our team. That's a big responsibility and means I need to lead by example for our team and be that guy that keeps everything in line.

"I also got a chance to talk with George Campbell, who I can tell loves Florida State, but he doesn't really have a favorite. He doesn't know what he's going to do I could see that, but I know he's going to visit FSU this summer, with Ray Ray McCloud. Someone brought up about Jacques visiting Notre Dame, but he said no, "I pretty much know where I'm going." I feel really good with FSU (for Jacques). Me, Ray Ray, Jacques all have similar conversations about Florida State, but George is a little weird, but he likes FSU a lot.

"On the first day, I didn't really meet anyone new because everyone was trying to get settled in. I would say the guy I hung out the most with is Jacques Patrick because we have always been close. We are like brothers because we both have the same kind of mindset in what we want to do and we are competitive against each other. I did hang out a lot with Minkah Fitzpatrick, who is my roommate. He's committed to Alabama, but he's already told me he's very interested in Florida State and that he will take a visit to Florida State. We just talk about FSU and he tells me that the first visit he really felt at home, but there weren't any people or students there on the visit, so he didn't get a full feel of the campus. That's one of the reasons he wants to get over there again. He wants to be there when everyone is in school. I could tell he's pretty interested.

"I feel we are the best team (at the Opening). They just named the quarterbacks for each team and we got Josh Rosen, who's one of the top quarterbacks in the country and we also got Blake Barnett, who is committed to Alabama, so we are pretty loaded. Our receivers are very good - Da'Vante Phillips, Ray Ray McCloud and Preston Williams. I think it helps our team that we have quite a few guys that I've played against like Da'Vante, Ray Ray, along with some of the cornerbacks I know as well. Everyone knows each other so we are familiar with their playing style.



Derwin James is trying to get more players on board for FSU at the Nike Opening Camp.
"Later in the day, we had some presentations, we heard guys speak like Tre Mason, Johnny Manziel, Trent Dilfer, Ndamukong Suh and D'Anthony Thomas. They talked about social media gets you in trouble and different things with recruiting in making sure you do the right things and how people would pay a lot of money to be in the position we are in. Johnny Manziel was very real about everything. He said he didn't take school seriously and always joking around. Seeing what they are in real life as top athletes makes you feel as a player you can make it.

"Throughout the day and evening, all the state of Florida guys hung out together and the Georgia guys hung out together. The Georgia players feel they are tougher and feel their football is better than ours in Florida. We later had dinner, then got a chance to play video games and other stuff. It was pretty similar to the Five star challenge, but there are a few more things to do at the Opening because they have pool tables and a lot of video games everywhere you look. When you aren't working out or anything like that, they have the big game room.

"I am just focused on what I need to do tomorrow. I'm ready to go and get my forty time right tomorrow when we do all the testing stuff for Sparq. Last year I ran like a 4.53 forty, so I want to get into the 4.4 range. I would say Torrance Gibson and George Campbell have been talking the most trash about running a big forty. Torrance thinks he can get down to a low 4.4 or in the 4.3 range and George ran in that area last year. Jacques has already been talking trash about how he's going to run a faster time than me. I told him our forty will not be faster than mine, so I got to be ready to have a great time, but he's not beating me.

"Overall, it's been a lot of fun except that the flight was so long. The weather is really nice and there's so much to do here with the different type of game rooms, pool tables and they give you a lot of Nike gear. I'm just focused on talking to as many guys as I can about Florida State the next three days and dominating like I know I can on the field. I hate to lose, so our team is going to be ready no question about it. I also want to build a lot of relationships with guys I haven't met before. That's a big part about being here. Of course I'm going to rep my school Florida State."

Los vs Cook foot race today



looks like Cook won but barely...check out Los' last 10 yards
Los look like he was steady gaining speed the entire time. Dem boys fast a hell.
