Description

Over the years, the position of quarterback in the National Football League has undergone various transformations. Of those transformations, the need for taller and heavier players has risen. As player stature has changed, so has the style of play in the NFL. This study is designed to determine if there is a correlation between quarterback body mass index (BMI) and total yards from scrimmage (TY). The study uses the stratified sampling method to look at the quarterback from each team who started the most games during the 2017-2018 football season. Data on age, height, weight, and game performance were collected from the NFL website. We hypothesize that quarterback BMI will have no correlation with total yards, but will have an affect on quarterback rushing yards. The study will also look to examine if age and family size may also have impact on game performance.
