The XFL today announced an agreement with Optimum Scouting, a comprehensive football consulting business, to provide the league with extensive talent evaluation and scouting services. Optimum Scouting’s approach focuses on player evaluation, with year-round input using predictive analytics, to provide insight and decision-making tools.
“The XFL’s first priority is to offer fans the highest quality, best on-field product possible,” said Oliver Luck, XFL Commissioner & CEO. “To accomplish this, we plan to work extremely hard to uncover hidden, overlooked talent, which is what Optimum Scouting is best known for doing. We look forward to working closely with them as we establish our player acquisition process over the next several months.”
“The talent evaluation process for the XFL is more than simply evaluating and signing players,” said Eric Galko, President, Optimum Scouting. “It’s about being efficient, analytical, and thorough in our evaluations to find the top players available to the XFL. Along with great ability and experience, Optimum Scouting focuses on identifying competitive, high character and motivated players and we are excited to be partnering with the XFL to help them reimagine football.”
