Great site here glad I was able to find it. My name is Rich Andrews, former St Thomas Aquinas, FSU, Detroit Lion etc placekicker with a passion for Football still to this day.
I have been coaching kids for many yrs and have a passion for protection.
Having been protecting cell phones and computers with advanced materials for over 25 yrs, I brought some of that technology into my latest business venture called leaderheadgear. I dont want to be an advertisement and respect those rules if they apply here, but some of you may have my product on your kids now if they Wrestle, but we created a very light weight headgear with frontal and rear protection of the head.

This passion to protect has brought me to our newest venture which we have created a new football helmet specific for youth league players.

I bring with me a designer who many of you know his helmet as many NFL players wear it and we partnered together to form a new revolutionary helmet with a bunch of new technology. We have a great group who share the same concerns with football and helmets.

Enuff of that, but this site really brings to us a lot of good information on what you as coaches,parents etc want in a helmet.

Once we are ready to announce I will be as open and candid as possible should anyone have questions concerns please feel free.

I know a lot about the Industry and we hope to get into the youth which will be very hard indeed to win trust from you the coaches and parents.

We make no false claims, never have never will.. all I want is for my kids and your kids to have the very best in protection. Having played in the NFL back when we had no collective bargaining agreement Helmets were a very hot topic and I participated in that process and learned a great deal, it wasn't until I was coaching at Aquinas when I saw last yrs number 3 pick in the draft get concussed relatively easily that we decided to make this a reality.

I hope to help as much here as possible, and like I said I'm not here as a sales tactic rather to learn and listen.

Thanks for your time..I hope everyone has a great safe yr

And thanks for taking the time to try and make the game safer .

I think you'll find this site is not the typical Knuckle dragging bad youth coach site.

I have just followed you on twitter

Thanks
