Popular Post UND Fan Posted August 22, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted August 22, 2019 As siouxsports.com members have done in recent years, we will again try to assist the football team in a very important way - keeping them healthy! As you likely know, UND is utilizing Guardian Caps during practice sessions this fall. These caps fit on the outside of players' existing helmets to make them more flexible and soft. They are able to more effectively absorb energy and mitigate repetitive, cumulative blows to the head. While protecting the players from head injuries during their playing careers is important, these caps can certainly help a player from incurring long term, debilitating head injuries. Today, the team has 35 Guardian Caps that are used by athletes playing certain positions. It would be great if we as ss.com members could raise the $3,500 necessary to provide the caps to all team members. As they have done in the past, the Alumni Foundation is creating a Crowdfunding website for this effort. All donations are tax deductible if you itemize. I will post the link as soon as it is available. For consistency, I decided to stay with the "Let's Help Bubba" name again this year. While I do not want to get into this discussion, I know some ss.com members are not necessarily big Bubba fans. Please set those thoughts aside and think about how we can help the team and the health of our players! If you have any questions, please let me know either on this thread or by PM. Thanks in advance for your participation! 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
