The Minnesota Vikings have an opportunity to do something that no NFL team has done before: to become the very first team to play in a SuperBowl in its own City. Superbowl LII is being held in Minnesota this year, and the Vikings, led by QB Case Keenum, are one of the Favorites to play in the final game. Especially after this ridiculous last-second play that sealed the Viking’s trip to the NFC Championship game.
Case Keenum had spent the first 4 years of his NFL Pro Football career as a backup, compiling a 9-15 record as a spot starter. This season, he took over the reigns for the Vikings following injuries to starting QB Sam Bradford, and has led his team to an 11-3 record, ending the regular season on a 3-Game Winning Streak to tie for the Best Record in the NFC at 13-3. Many are talking about MVP considerations.
Keenum highly praises Virtual Reality for his Success.
The following is an excerpt of an ESPN article you can find below:
Like many teams across the NFL and in college football, the Minnesota Vikings use technology patented by STRIVR, an industry leader in virtual reality training. Back in the spring, when Keenum was a new addition to the Vikings’ roster as a backup, general manager Rick Spielman and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur sat down with him and the other quarterbacks to find out if VR was something they wanted to incorporate in their routines. According to CEO Derek Belch, Keenum had seen STRIVR’s demo when he was with the Rams and decided it would be beneficial to work into his prep beginning in organized team activities and mini-camp.
