GE Draft Day featuring John Urschel!
Last week was an exciting time for the 2015-2016 NFL season..... DRAFT DAY! Young football hopefuls nervously and anxiously wait for their chance to play in the NFL. To ease the tension for this year's NFL Draft, Cashmere Agency worked with GE and John Urschel, player for the Baltimore Ravens, to celebrate the intersection of sports and science. Urschel is a mathematician with both his Bachelors and Masters degree in Mathematics from Penn State University. (Quintessential example of "Mathlete"). This social media takeover with Twitter, Snapchat, and Periscope, consisted of Urschel schooling the rest of us onhow to calculate math and science into the draft and shedding a different light on how to perceive the science of football. Urschel touched on the basics of using science and math in determining calculations about players’ speed, agility, and strength. Take a look at some of his work below!https://twitter.com/MathMeetsFball/status/593902378040037376https://twitter.com/generalelectric/status/593933675965874176https://twitter.com/generalelectric/status/593956204482797568https://twitter.com/generalelectric/status/593943818648612865https://twitter.com/generalelectric/status/594310468027731968https://twitter.com/generalelectric/status/594315983747186688Check out this awesome BuzzFeed article about the whole activation!Follow GE and John Urschel to see how everything went down!General ElectricJohn Urschel
