While we all wait for news of when high school football can resume, there’s a nationwide competition on Twitter to determine the best high school football helmet in America.
The idea begin when three guys in Pennsylvania — Chris (@END2008), Ian (@thesteelersnat) and Matt (@pa_fb_history) — decided to take to Twitter to determine the best helmet in the Keystone State. Using the 563 helmets for teams in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) that Chris designed, the trio put-on a Battle Royale with fans voting for their favorite helmet. BTW, Chris designs the helmets you see on High School Football America.
When the dust settled, the Conemaugh Township Indians were voted the best helmet in Pennsylvania. The Indians beat Marple Newtown High in the finals
Conemaugh Township collected 57-percent of the votes and picked-up this champion mini-helmet.
Big news for our state champs, Conemaugh Township!— PA Football History (@pa_fb_history) May 8, 2020
This mini helmet is on its way to Davidsville, thanks to the awesome @Hubbyshelmets. If you want gifts (especially for your senior FB players), get in touch with him!@END2008 @PaFootballNews @EPAFootball @samzam14 @ConTwpSD pic.twitter.com/zeHvU6CcRG
This weekend, I spoke to the guys about the origins of their idea and you can listen to our chat on the High School Football America Podcast below.
