Trent Dilfer, Soul and Science
Seahawks Legend Trent Dilfer (QB, 2001-2004) will soon be co-hosting a new program called Soul and Science. The former ESPN analyst will join John Brenkus (host and creator of the 6-time Emmy Award winning Sport Science) for the new venture.
Soul and Science will feature Dilfer and Brenkus as they provide in-depth analysis of athletes in every sport, with Dilfer exploring the intangible factors (Soul) that make an athlete special, and Brenkus diving deep into the biomechanics (Science) of elite athletic performance.
In a groundbreaking deal with NFL Network, Soul and Science segments will be featured exclusively throughout the entire NFL Network platform (both linear and non-linear) in the weeks before, during and after the NFL Draft. The segments will feature the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft class, including: Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson, Mason Rudolph and Luke Falk among others.
With the quarterback position arguably being the most physically and mentally demanding position in all of sports, Dilfer and Brenkus will break down the measurable and immeasurable aspects of each player and how their respective skill sets will translate from college to the NFL.
“The scientific work that John has done in the past has truly changed the way we look at sports,” said Dilfer. “And John and I both agree that science is only one lens through which we should examine a player.”
NFL Network is planning to debut each Soul and Science segment on their flagship shows Good Morning Football and Total Access, as well as across all digital platforms on April 18.
