From the Series The Opportunity
Latrell Baker’s scientific approach to football—watching football—has finally paid off. Harmon Holt heard about the algorithm he developed for determining best defensive play, and now Latrell’s landed himself an internship with the NFL’s LA Stars. But he’ll soon discover that working in pro football involves more politics and secrets than science.
