Tutorial Thursday: Playing around with Madden 2020

It’s more than just a video game

NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Michigan vs Florida State Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Technology has become a vital tool for football coaches and players. Florida State head coach Mike Norvell talks about 3D video, how teams utilize HUDL and other video sites, and now football meetings are held via ZOOM video chats. One old school method of “practicing” is with the Madden video game.

Madden, created by EASports and legendary coach John Madden, have long been a tool used by players to practice reads and train their eyes. The football simulation game is also a good way to have a little fun. The most recent installment of Whiteboard Wednesday discussed Mike Norvell’s running game. So, naturally, I decided it might be a good idea to jump on Madden 20 and see what these run plays look like.

After hours and hours of very tedious practice to ensure I was at my best, I sent a few clips over to Kevin. Kevin worked his magic and we had some fun with this project. Madden can be a fun tool to get a sense of what a player might see and read on plays. This is our semi-fun but serious attempt at utilizing this tool. Check out the video and tell us what you think (be kind).
