Lake Washington High School in Kirkland Washington on Leading Edge of \"Football Revolution\"

Lake Washington High School Among First in Nation to Use New Technology - Play Analyzer Device Used to Analyze Opponent\'s Plays and Gain Scholarships

    / -- October 8, 2004 - When the Lake Washington High School Kangaroos took the field this year they had a secret weapon only a few schools in the nation can claim. It's not a 300-pound pass rusher, or a blazingly fast wide-out. It's a new technology that rivals the best of major college and professional football - the Landro Play Analyzer.

Coach Tim Tramp is among the first coaches in the nation to replace old-fashioned videotape with new "play analyzer" technology to analyze plays, study player's techniques and build college scholarship highlight video tapes. Play analyzer technology allows high school coaches to prepare in much the same fashion as their major college and professional counterparts and makes it easy for players to aggressively seek college scholarships by instantly creating their own highlight video.

"This is a revolution in the way high school football programs will operate," says John Banaszak, three-time Super Bowl Champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers, college coach and Landro spokesperson. Banaszak is helping to spread the word about Landro, traveling the country to demonstrate how it can help win games - and secure a better future for student athletes.

The Landro® play analyzer is a digital "playback analysis" tool used to study game videos. Designed especially for head football coaches, it allows viewers to instantly jump to game plays without using video tape. This revolutionary device allows football coaches to analyze their plays, study player technique and expose opponent’s tendencies 100 times faster and without the inconvenience associated with video tape. The Landro system is easy to use and is quickly becoming a fundamental tool in football gaming strategy across America. Now Lake Washington High School Coach Tramp can review each blitz play studying their strengths and their weaknesses.

Landro is the brainchild of Jerry Salandro, CEO of IRIS Technologies., in Greesburg, PA. A pioneer in creating efficient employee training technology at Volkswagen, Salandro changed the face of photo development when, in 1979, he created a mini-lab that allowed customers to get their developed photos back within a day. The concept went on to become what are commonly known today as One-Hour photo stores.
