Altoona, IA – The Iowa Football team will be the first in the U.S.A. to wear custom fit helmets made by Riddell. The helmet is designed to provide the maximum amount of protection for each player.
The new helmets come with a pretty hefty price tag. It’s going to cost over $1,000 per helmet. The goal is to reduce the amount of concussions sustained by each athlete. If the results prove to be true, you can bet there will be a number of teams that make the change.
Hawkeye Football leading the way.
