Farrell football to use impact monitoring system in helmets in 2018

We're living in a day and age where the safety of football players is paramount. And that's the way it should be. The topic of concussions has run wild in recent years on all levels, from youth leagues to the National Football League. When it comes to recovering from a concussion, inactivity and rest are usually key in getting healthy again. But prevention has become just as important and Monsignor Farrell's football program has decided to try something different with Riddell, the company that makes its helmets.

The fall of one size fits all

I'm sitting on a stool in the middle of an office, wearing a football helmet shell while a guy is pointing a gadget at me that looks a bit like an iPad with handles. "Keep looking straight ahead," he says as he circles around me, waving the gadget like a magic wand. "Try not to move too much." After about 30 seconds of this, I remove the helmet and replace it with a thick, uncomfortable hood, sort of like an industrial-strength ski mask, and the whole process repeats, with the guy once again circling around me with his gadget.
