This season the Green Knights will have sensors from Riddell called InSite. Coach Tom Marcucci says they’re installed in 12 helmets for players who play on the offensive line, defensive line or other high impact positions, “it’s another safeguard, that’s how I look at it,” says Marcucci. “Our helmets are all the same, I think the misconception is that the helmet is different. The guys without the sensor, the helmet is the same. So we still rely on observation and the experience of the coaches. It’s just another tool to use to keep the game safer.”
