Down! Set! HUT-HUT! 

American Football~

“Sports instructions are based on using vectors. Wide receivers playing American football, for example, might run a route where they run seven yards down the field before turning left 45 degrees and running in that direction. Sports commentary also depends on vectors. Only a few sports have fields with grids [like football], so discussions revolve around the direction and speed of the player. Illustrations of plays in a variety of sports rely on simple vector images as well [1].”

Vectors are also used to compute the speed and direction a player needs to complete a pass [2].
