Stathead Football: How Data Changed the Sport

In pro football today, it’s good to be a stathead. Coaches use stats to decide which plays to run, how defend against each opponent, when to go for it on fourth down, and when to punt. Players use stats to train and prepare and to get an edge after the kickoff. And sports reporters rely on data to describe the games. Today’s football fans, who always want to be in the know, get more out of the action by joining the ranks of the statheads.

"Don’t let the name of this series fool readers—it’s not just a bunch of record books, but a thoughtful set of titles that consider the importance and influence of statistics in sports. Each volume effectively describes how stats are simultaneously amazing and deceiving—players in every sport are guilty of putting up big numbers but not producing any wins. . . .Libraries looking to bolster connections between math and athletics will want to make purchasing this series a priority." - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
