With participation in youth football in steady decline, Gamebreaker Headgear CEO Mike Juels explains how better protection for players will better protect the future of the game.
Football has always been a game that has been on the cutting edge of the latest and greatest that technology has to offer. As the world has evolved, so has the game. New technology, new understanding, new attitudes – all have impacted football to make it better for everyone.
All three of these elements came together on March 10, 2018, at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) when the Texas Youth Football Association (TYFA) announced its plans to address the future of football. As part of its planning, TYFA brought in Gamebreaker to help develop a multi-year plan to reduce contact across the league and make it more appealing for parents and players to participate in the sport.
