Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck spent part of his offseason back at Stanford, taking advantage of the latest technology in an effort to improve his game.
According to ESPN's Mike Wells, former Stanford kick Derek Belch developed a virtual reality program called STRIVR that allows players to put on a mask and headphones and gives a 180-degree view of what it's like to be on the football field.
"It's real footage," Luck said, via ESPN. "Imagine you're standing in practice and the camera captures real footage. You can go through the play with real plays and with real players. It's not simulated or anything. It was really fascinating to see the technology. As a Stanford alum, I'm proud something like that is taking place in the football department and in the virtual reality lab there. It was really cool to see. It's another tool to prepare the quarterback. It prepares a running back for protection. I think it'll have an impact."

The Cardinal used the software last season with quarterback Kevin Hogan, and as Wells notes, Hogan saw his completion percentage rise from 64 percent to 76 percent after using it.
Luck said he'd be open to trying the software more in the future.
"Yeah, absolutely," Luck said. "Anything that can give you an edge as a quarterback, you're going to check it out."
