Kathy Tomlinson, has created a unique gaming app called The Quarterback Equalizer. The app is designed to teach football players (specifically quarterbacks) their position in a fun and cognitive way. The app, developed by her Dallas-based company, Equalizer Games LLC, allows players to transfer what they learn to the field.
“The Quarterback Equalizer is a game that addresses the need of fulfilling the off-field learning curve,” says Kathy.
Her husband and CEO of Equalizer Games LLC, John Tomlinson, has been a football coach for well over 25 years. “I’ve seen the struggles that quarterbacks go through when juggling game plans, defensive pressures, and the speed of the game, all while trying to prepare for an opponent,” he says. “The Quarterback Equalizer was created to equip and enforce the rules all quarterbacks should have in their mental make-up each time they drop back to pass.”
Kathy took her husband’s passion for football and his drive to educate and create a business around it. Since its inception in 2014, Equalizer Games has been singularly focused on the development of the Quarterback Equalizer app. The app is the first in a series of games to be created by Equalizer Games LLC to help users better understand the nuances of football so that they can successfully execute offensive concepts with efficiency.
“We focused on the quarterback because that position requires a great deal of preparation and detail on a weekly basis,” says John. “Many quarterbacks do not fully develop their skill set until their collegiate years. The Quarterback Equalizer can change that by providing additional training off the field that will enrich their abilities on the field. The cool thing about The Quarterback Equalizer is that the player now can go to a virtual classroom and get the help he needs when he’s away from school. It’s an enhancer to the coaches’ scheme but building on the fundamentals of the position.”
The Quarterback Equalizer app is available in the App Store and on Google Play. For more information about the Quarterback Equalizer, visit https://theqbeq.com/
