Elder High School’s football team is being outfitted with new ProTech helmet add-ons from Defend Your Head, a company led by former Jets lineman John Roman. The ProTech helmet add-on has force reduction technology to reduce head trauma. It works similarly to an air-bag around the helmet.

Cincinnati, Ohio (August 21, 2017) – In efforts to reduce helmet collision force for its players, Elder High School has begun a relationship with Defend Your Head (DYH), a sports safety company whose mission is to reduce football collision force with its innovative soft shell technology, ProTech.
