OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Over 100 Baltimore County varsity high school football players are receiving brand new helmets, thanks to the Ravens and Xenith.

The lucky teams are Hereford, Lansdowne, Milford Mill Academy, and Sparrows Point High Schools.

“We are thrilled to partner with Xenith on this program,” Ravens senior vice president of marketing Brad Downs stated. “While this season may not occur under normal circumstances, the Ravens feel it is important to commit to the future of the sport and safety of the student-athletes. We look forward to continuing our support for years to come.”

Some Xenith helmets have reportedly finished as a top performer in helmet laboratory testing done by the NFL.

“It is an honor to partner with a renowned football program like the Baltimore Ravens to surprise this deserving group of student-athletes with new, upgraded helmets,” said Ryan Sullivan, Xenith CEO. “At Xenith, we believe that everyone who wants to play football should have access to top-rated protection. Opportunities like this allow us to deliver on our mission in a really meaningful way, and we are excited to outfit these Baltimore-area high schools in top-performing helmets.”
