This Couple is Helping Quarterbacks Through Gaming

Being a student-athlete can be a full-time job. Between classes, practice, and games, there is no extra time to sharpen up on skills off the field. That’s why Kathy and John Tomlinson want to give more football quarterbacks the ability to sharpen their skills directly from their phones with Quarterback Equalizer. Quarterback Equalizer — which officially launched in 2019 — is an app that teaches quarterbacks at various levels how to better read defenses.
