Flag football is now the fastest-growing team sport in the country. More kids ages 6 to 12 are playing flag football than tackle football.

Last football season, King High School’s Head Football Coach, Eddie Hesseltine, was approached about a soft shell, cap-style helmet. He was intrigued, but not completely sold. Until one of his players, who had a history of concussions, hit his head on the field during a 7-on-7 tournament.
Hesseltine says he was worried that this player might have another concussion. Fortunately, that player was fine, but this gave Hesseltine the idea that even without full pads there needs to be more protection.
