Hall, John H.
Computers have been used in a variety of applications for athletics since the late 1950's. These have ranged from computer-controlled electric scoreboards to computer-designed pole vaulting poles. Described in this paper are a computer-based athletic injury reporting system and a computer-assisted football scouting system. The injury reporting system uses an optical mark sense form on which various data concerning an athlete's injury and subsequent treatments are entered. Report programs then produce various statistics and information on player statuses for the coaching and training staffs. The football scouting system provides the scout with ready-made forms that may be used to record observations on individual plays and players. A series of reports may be requested by the user. Sample reports from the football scouting system are provided. (DGC)
