Cleveland Browns Surprise Ohio High School with $25,000 in Helmets

The Maysville High (Ohio) football team will be the envy of high school team across the country next season.

The team was randomly selected last week to receive $25,000 in state-of-the-art helmets made possible through the HELMETS program.

HELMETS is a collaboration between the Browns, University Hospitals, Xenith and Ohio Lottery in an effort to enhance health and safety of young athletes through proper equipment, education and training.

HELMETS encourages and incentivizes local high school football programs throughout Northeast Ohio to strengthen their commitment to player health and safety by enrolling coaches in USA Football’s Heads Up Football program. All teams registering for HELMETS — just like Maysville — must be certified or plan to become certified in USA Football’s Heads Up football program.
