BRADENTON, FL (WWSB) - Lakewood Ranch's football program is investing in Riddell’s InSite smart helmet technology that includes an Insite Training Tool. 

Riddell’s ITT technology is a web-based data center that builds player impact profiles, rich with information, that a coach may use to identify opportunities. These then can be used to proactively influence player behavior and reduce exposure to impacts through improved training techniques and practice plans.

 

"Now, more than ever, it’s our responsibility as football coaches, trainers and administrators, that we embrace new technological advances that enable us to proactively protect our athletes, making sure they can continue to enjoy the game of football,” said Shawn Trent, Athletic Director Lakewood Ranch High School. “With the purchase of Riddell’s InSite Training Tool, we are following through on our commitment, offering our staff and players real and useful data that we believe will continue to make the game smarter.”

The mustangs will be using their new ITT impact management program during their upcoming fall season.
