The WVU Seeker - New Technology Introduced for On-Field Player Development


​The West Virginia University football program, in its dedicated commitment to enhancing and developing the total student-athlete, continues to be proactive in finding cutting-edge technology and initiatives that give each player opportunities to improve their skill level and leadership ability, on and off the field. 

In the short time he has been at WVU, Mountaineer coach Neal Brown has introduced areas such as the 5th Quarter Program, which has used partnerships with #INFLCR, Athlete Network and the services of brand marketing expert, consultant and author Jeremy Darlow, just to name a few areas, to develop the student-athlete and maximize brand opportunities off the field. Brown most recently announced PEAK (Promote Empowerment, Accelerate Knowledge) as the program's Name/Image/Likeness initiative.

This summer, new on-the-field technology is being introduced: the WVU Seeker, a cutting-edge innovation to assist in the development of the receiving corps and the return units.

The Seeker, developed and produced by Monarc, is the world's first robotic quarterback that affords unlimited practice opportunities and gives the ability to calibrate itself to pass, punt or kickoff to any part of the field. This will allow dramatic in-season practice efficiency gains for offense, defense as well as special teams.
