Who is a
High School
Hero?

A High School Hero is any NFL player who wants to give back to his High School or youth team by making sure each player on his former team is using the best force-reducing technology.

“On the field playing high school football is where my love of the game truly developed. It's so important as professional players to support these football programs and be part of initiatives that keep young players safe. I'm so excited to join Defend Your Head's "High School Hero" program to bring better head safety to high school football.”

THE PROBLEM

Concussion and Long term effects of repetitive impacts with many sub-concussive blows going unnoticed.

Most of the industry’s head protection efforts focus on reducing the number of concussions. Players suffering from concussions typically show symptoms and are removed from the game.

However, a growing body of research suggests repetitive sub concussive events can be as harmful as injuries sustained from “big concussive hits”, which are more easily diagnosed.

ProTech SAFR Technology addresses both, however with schools’ athletic budgets being cut across the country, safety is not being made a priortiy.

THE SOLUTION

Protech: Patented Soft-shell force reduction technology that complements existing helmet models

Absorbs and dissipates energy
Reduces linear and rotational acceleration
Redirects collision force with an innovative spring-loaded attachment system

With the help of our High School Heroes, schools and youth sports organizations will be given the gift of safety for their athletes.
