Cherokees to use new helmet monitoring system

This season, Greenback will install a select number of helmet sensors into football helmets that

are designed to measure head impact severity. The system, by Riddell, is called InSite and

includes a sensor system that installs directly into the helmet. That sensor is capable of

outputting data that can be used by our trainers to measure impact injury.

Greenback is the first high school in East Tennessee to use this new technology, and

Coach Hicks hopes it will add another level of professionalism and an additional

element of safety for our players.

You can read more about this system here and here.
