RushTrainer is an automatic football counter that has vast applications for training and pick-up games of football. Programmable timer is activated either by lifting a foot or by removing a ball from the sensor, indicating the beginning of a play. After the countdown time expires, a sound alarm is triggered. During pick-up and intramural games, this alarm informs the players that the defending team is allowed to rush the quarterback, eliminating inconsistency and bias of verbal counting. In training, both amateur and professional, the buzzer is used to signal the end of a training drill, allowing offense to practice completing plays in the desired amount of time, thus helping to improve technique and develop quick decision-making.
