“Last year, we started the season using the Guardian Caps for practice only. After several weeks of seeing the benefits of the Guardians, we decided to use them for all games too. The kids definitely did not use them as weapons. If there is a helmet to helmet collision against a player not wearing the Guardian Cap, both players get the benefit of the outer cushion. I’m 100% convinced these caps make the game and our players safer!”
– Craig S. Childs, Commissioner, Newburyport Youth Football (MA), 2015
“We believe in wearing Guardian Caps to further protect our players. We treat the caps like it’s part of their everyday equipment and it’s mandatory to wear.”
– Matt Logan, Head Coach, Corona Centennial HS (CA) #2 in MaxPreps’ 2015 National HS Rankings
“To me, there’s no negativity to wearing them. People don’t really appreciate what an O-lineman and a D-lineman goes through. They’re facing impact — not only in a game, and they’re getting 80 plays in a game — but then you see how they practice. The impact on those kids … there’s impact on every snap of every play.”
– Matt Campbell, Head Football Coach, University of Toledo (OH), 2014
“I doubt the relationship between the reduction of SI (or accelerations rotational or otherwise) and concussions will ever be shown conclusively to everyone’s satisfaction. Thinking of this in medical terms, one would need randomized, prospective, double-blinded study to meet Class-I evidence criteria. Even if this was technically possible, it wouldn’t be ethical to conduct such a study because you couldn’t withhold a device that had at least some evidence of protection from a random group of players. We run into this all of the time in medicine where an impasse is reached and further study is difficult or impossible. An example of this is that there has never been Class-I evidence for appendectomies even though this is a well-accepted surgery to treat appendicitis.”
