Transcript of "Nfl football helmets"

  1. 1. NFL FOOTBALL HELMETS By: Pat Clare
  2. 2. Football Helmet <ul><li>The football helmet has progressed many times over the years since it was first created. </li></ul><ul><li>The purpose of the helmet is to simply protect the heads of the football players. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a mandatory rule to wear one when playing any organized ball. </li></ul><ul><li>In current football, a big problem with helmets are making them more effective to help with concussions. </li></ul>
  3. 3. First Type of Helmet <ul><li>The first helmet was created in 1896, at Lafayette College by a man named George Barclay. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a very basic design that protects the head to a bare minimum. </li></ul><ul><li>George believed that with no helmets there would be a lot more injuries for rugby, but the idea was never used, and was used for football. </li></ul><ul><li>The helmet protected the ears more the head. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Leather Helmets <ul><li>The second helmet, leather helmets, at the time were not even a mandatory thing to wear in the game. </li></ul><ul><li>The creators of helmets wanted to focus on protecting more important parts than the ears. </li></ul><ul><li>There was a thick layer of leather by the head to protect the brain. </li></ul><ul><li>The ears were still protected with a hole in them to hear the play call. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Leather Helmets Continued <ul><li>Leather helmets existed for another bunch of years as they slowly progressed. </li></ul><ul><li>Helmet creators believed that the helmet needed more padding due to the number of head injuries, so they add more leather. </li></ul><ul><li>Theodore Roosevelt New Rule </li></ul><ul><li>The helmet also had a chin strap so they have the helmet not slip of the head. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Helmet with Mask In 1943, the NCAA introduced the helmet with a mask to protect the eyes and the face. The helmet used a thicker form of leather, and added a wool inside to keep the players head warm during cold games. Many parts of the head like the temple were unprotected which caused a plethora of serious injuries.
  7. 7. Current Football Helmet <ul><li>Today, we have advanced the face mask, the chin strap, and we have created a hard plastic cover. </li></ul><ul><li>There is logos of teams and stores allow fans to customize their own helmets. </li></ul><ul><li>Inside the helmet there are microphones and sensors to see if the player has a concussion. </li></ul><ul><li>The padding is on every corner and is made of foam. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Future Football Helmet <ul><li>My idea of the future football helmet is that the creators add a camera that can take an MRI of your brain. </li></ul><ul><li>You can slide down a video camera where you can talk to your coach in the huddle face to face. </li></ul><ul><li>Microphones connected to players and coaches today can be easily broken with a heavy hit. </li></ul>
