Technology is helping high school and minor football players in Swift Current to practice tackling techniques in a safe manner through the use of a remote control tackling dummy. Players from the Colts football team at Swift Current Comprehensive High School and  bantam players from the Swift Current Steelers held their first practice sessions with the Mobile Virtual Player (MVP) on Oct. 19. The MVP is a mobile, self-righting tackling dummy that is equipped with a motorized, remote control system.
