All-Pro linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who is on pace to break the all-time season sack record, stars in Red Bull Moments: The Anatomy of a Sack, a state-of-the-art video clip that details the mental and physical approach to a sack.
By using a camera system built on advanced high-speed cinema technology capturing 1,000 frames per second, the clip depicts every detail in slow motion as Ware bursts off the line of scrimmage, man-handles the offensive lineman and pushes through to slam down the quarterback.
Fewer than 50 such cameras exist in the world and this type of technology is able to record the motion of a bullet in flight - which is pretty much how to describe Ware’s approach to the quarterback. Now football fans everywhere can truly live the experience, not just see it from afar on Sundays.
“DeMarcus does all of the things you want him to do,” says legendary coach Bill Belichick. “He's strong against the run. He can rush the passer. He's great in pursuit. He's got power, he's got speed, he's got good technique. He's good in pass coverage. He gets a lot of depth. He's a guy you've got to account for on every snap; you've got to know where he is and he could definitely disrupt any play if you don't handle him.”
With all of the buzz surrounding Ware, there’s no wonder why fans would want to see his sack tactics broken down to such a level.
Welcome to Red Bull
This marks Ware’s first project as a Red Bull athlete. He joins a roster of Red Bull champions including Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn, PGA superstar Rickie Fowler, world-class snowboarder Travis Rice and close to 500 others worldwide.
“I drink Red Bull before the game and it gives me an extra edge; I feel invincible,” said Ware. “I get that feeling going through my veins, just pure brute strength. It gives me that at a moment’s notice.”
On Thanksgiving Day, Ware will take to the turf with another member of the Red Bull family, Super Bowl champion Reggie Bush, as their teams square off in one of the most-watched games of the football season. Nothing like a little family rivalry to get into the holiday spirit, right?
