Orlando, Fla. — The New England Patriots credit the team’s mental toughness for their historic Super Bowl comeback victory. When interviewed after the game, quarterback Tom Brady said the team “never felt out of it.” Wide receiver Chris Hogan revealed Brady had refused to concede defeat even as the Falcons took a 28-3 lead late in the game. “The entire time, there wasn’t a moment when Brady looked like he thought this thing was over.”
For that much resilience the team has to have the right talent playing in the right positions and training together correctly. The Patriots have clearly done that, and in large part thanks to their use of the Troutwine Athletic Profile (TAP) developed by Dr. Robert Troutwine and provided by The Right Profile, a talent analytics firm for professional sports teams, law firms and corporations.
The TAP has been a fixture at the NFL Combine for decades and nearly every NFL player for the past 20 years has taken the assessment. “I’ve been familiar with the TAP for over 15 years, and I’m telling you from experience that it gives you tremendous insight into players, yourself, and your program,” said Patriots coach, Bill Belichick.
Other professional teams have also benefitted by using the TAP. The Kansas City Royals approached The Right Profile after the 2012 season to strengthen their abilities to recruit, integrate and train the right talent. That decision ultimately led the Royals to their World Series win in 2015.
The Right Profile has begun expanding into collegiate, high school and amateur athletics. “Use of The Right Profile tools at those levels helps prepare younger athletes for a potential future in professional sports as well as providing the skills applicable in all aspects of their life,” said Mark Levin, Co-Founder of The Right Profile.
The Right Profile, a client company of the UCF Business Incubation Program in the Central Florida Research Park, offers recruiting/evaluation tools that give management an insight into critical performance traits and intangibles that would otherwise be missed.
