Rogers Athletic Provides Products to Super Bowl Fan Experience
CLARE — Rogers Athletic, which is located in Clare County, provided some of its football products to the NFL for the fan experience down at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, Ga.
The company has provided different training products to the NFL since its start in 1970 and has been a part of the Super Bowl fan experience since the early 1990s. This year was no different, as their dummies and field training products can be seen in Atlanta. The goal is to let fans experience what it it takes to train like a star football player.
“We’re networking with a bunch of event companies down there at the Super Bowl for the NFL experience,” said John Green, who is a national salesman for Rogers Athletic. “That’s all about the fans. That’s letting the kids, and teenagers and even adults do some of the same movements, the same things that players do. That they see some of the idols on TV. We supply those products. You’ll see some video, some young kids, you know, working their way through that.”
Their most recent device is the MVP Drive, which is the first mobile, self-righting tackle dummy in the world, and their products used by the NFL can be found at their website: https://www.rogersathletic.com/products.
The Super Bowl kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 3, between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots. The game will be broadcast on 9 and 10 on CBS.
