The Future of Football

Create a safer, smarter, and more realistic practice environment. Rogers Athletic is proud to partner with Mobile Virtual Player™ to launch MVP-DRIVE™ – The world’s first smart, remote-controlled tackling dummy.

A safer game through better technology

  • In youth football, 53% of all injuries and 46% of all concussions occured during practice. The most common mechanism of injury was player contact.
  • In high school football, 60-75% of head trauma occurs in practice, not in games.

The Rogers Athletic MVP-DRIVE™ Mobile Dummy offers a safer method for practicing live tackling against a moving target.

  • Quick speed and direction changes
  • MVP-DRIVE 40 yard time: 6 seconds
