I’m 5’7″ and tried one out just recently. Call me crazy because I believed all the hype after reading an online review. Let’s now move on to the review. CATHERINE ELLIS, REPORTER: It’s a dream for thousands of Aussie kids to be selected by an AFL team and making the cut is hugely exciting.

PSparq is an approximation of the “Sparq Score” metric invented by NIKE (with the help of former USC and current Seattle Seahawks Head Coach, Pete Carroll), designed as a way to standardize athletic testing of High School athletes and interpret their athleticism with a sport specific formula. By standardizing a single metric composed of multiple athletic test results, it becomes possible to compare players to the athletic testing scores of players in past draft classes, and to provide context as to how a player will compare athletically to his peers at the NFL level. The Z Score represents the number of standard deviations (sigma) above or below the mean at a particular position that player falls, 84% of players will have a Z score of less than 1, 98% will have a Z score of less than 2, and 99.87% will fall below a Z Score of 3.
By the time April came around, there were 19 players on the Sox roster.

As we all know, Kobe Bryant shoes are part of Nike’s signature sneaker line. The price is a little too steep? I understand completely. That is a lot of money to spend on a pair of basketball shoes.

Joining Nike, on the other hand, means being associated with the company other big names: Jordan, James, and Kobe.
