For football enthusiasts everywhere, you know that football season is right around the corner. Leslie Matthews, mom to NFL player Clay Matthews III of the Green Bay Packers and Casey Matthews of the Philadelphia Eagle, is no stranger to the preparation it takes to get her boys ready for the oncoming season.
Since she has lived this dream with her two boys, Leslie Matthews has teamed up with Riddell in order to share her experiences as a football parent and as a coach’s wife and is offering tips and advice on how to keep other parents’ children healthy during the 2014 football season.
Leslie will be in New York City on Wednesday, July 30th to discuss the following important suggestions:
· Proper pre- and post-game nutrition and recovery techniques
· How the game of football is changing and how equipment needs to match new standards
· The importance of being hands-on and asking the right questions to ensure a child is safe on the field
The Riddell Corporation was founded in 1929 as a premier designer and developer of protective sports equipment. Ever since then they have been recognized as a leader in helmet technology and innovation. They are best known for the Official Football Helmet of the NFL. Not only do they provide the helmets, but the shoulder pads and reconditioning services (cleaning, repairing, repainting and recertification of existing equipment), too.
Because of their popularity, they are also very interested in keeping players as safe as they can be. That is why one of the important discussion topics will be the Riddell InSite Impact Response System.
This system is a new integrated monitoring and alerting tool designed specifically for the proactive protection of football players. InSite was developed based on its Head Impact Telemetry System (HITS) and Sideline Response System (SRS). This technology has analyzed nearly 1.8+ million impacts since 2003.
Riddell InSite uses this technology to monitor and record significant head impacts both during games and in practices. Coaches and other pertinent sideline staff will now have the capability of monitoring the impact from the sidelines from the viewpoint of the helmet. The essence of InSite is to significantly reduce the risk of concussions because the team staff will now be able to monitor high risk single and multiple head impacts and manage accordingly.
Leslie Matthews knows what it is like for mothers to have to worry about injuries in the game of football. She is prepared to step out on the whole for all mothers who bear this same worry. As time gets closer, more information about the Riddell InSite Impact Response System will be released. Stay tuned!
