Behind the NumbersLearn about the team dedicated to making statistics fun.
The guys that bring it all to life.
To my core, I’m a teacher. It’s a massive honor to do this work, and the educator role has always been home for me. I’m also happy to know that I’m other things too. I realize that while I was a teacher, I was also an observer. I tuned into which phrases and energies opened the floodgates to learning, and which slammed them shut. Into the mix with teacher and observer, I’m also a synthesizer, fusing ground-breaking ideas from other experts, films I’ve seen, books I’ve read, and my recent parenthood, all into singular messages about how to successfully connect to and eventually inspire those before us.

Executive Producer of StatsCenter, Jordan G. Cohen. I am a senior at the Brentwood School in Los Angeles, a long-time sports lover, die hard Philadelphia Eagles fan, and competitive soccer goalie. It is my dream to one day own an NFL team, and I enjoy nerding out over sports business, so have spent my summers in the Wharton Sports Business Academy and the Moneyball program. However, my real passion is to use sports to connect with people and to help make education engaging and relevant.

The Story Behind StatsCenter
Styled as a parody of ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” “StatsCenter” covers some of the most dry and daunting topics in what we hope will be a transformative way for so many students with the unrealized potential to excel in these subject areas.
Created by Robert Ahdoot of YayMath.org and with executive producer Jordan Cohen. Join Robert and Jordan on an educationally centered, sports-based exploration into the study of statistics.
