Week in review

This past Sunday, former Cal quarterback Joe Ayoob made news when he threw a paper airplane 226 feet, 10 inches, a new world record.

How did he do it? Our friends at Sport Science provide an instant — and inspirational — breakdown in the video above.

After you watch the video and before you test March’s winds with your aerodynamic new invention, let’s review this week on Front Row:

* SportsCenter anchor Sage Steele completed 13.1 miles in 2 hours, 16 minutes and 9 seconds at the Disney Princess Half Marathon.

* College football analyst Ed Cunningham won an Oscar for his documentary Undefeated, a chronicle of the Memphis Manassas high school football team in its quest for a winning season after years of losing.

* Amanda Rykoff is a writer/contributor/columnist for espnW. She’s auditioned to be a team’s mascot and traveled to stadiums across the country and taken pictures with mascots … It’s not crazy, it’s sports.

* ESPN Innovation is looking for a few good developers. To help test the API and experiment with various methods for interacting with fans and developers, ESPN is hosting an app development competition.

* Think you know your ESPN’s men’s college basketball announcers? We found out one little-known fact about their preparation or that of their announce team before tip-off.
