Wearing football equipment optimized for your game is essential for peak performance. With the pace of today's game being played faster than ever before, players being asked to cover more ground, and linemen on both sides of the ball getting faster and more agile, you simply cannot overlook the importance of having football equipment tailor-made to fit your game.
In this article, we’ll talk about how athletes can get Xenith gear after transitioning from high school to their college football teams.
First, it's worth noting that scenarios may vary from school to school when making equipment requests. For example; most equipment managers working in the Power Five conferences (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC-12 and SEC) will ask incoming players what they wore in the past, or what they want to wear for the upcoming season, and they'll often make it happen for them.
At the FCS level, equipment requests can be a little more hit-and-miss, whereas unless you are a top recruit or the star quarterback, you might be limited to what the team already has in their inventory.
Now, this doesn't necessarily mean you're out of luck. In this instance, if you still want to wear a Xenith helmet or shoulder pads rather than what the team offers, we recommend you talk with your team's equipment manager(s) and explain why you prefer Xenith equipment. From there, our sales team can work with them to bring Xenith helmets/shoulder pads into their equipment rooms so athletes have a broader selection of gear to choose from.
Ask Your Equipment Manager
The main takeaway here is that players transitioning from high school to college are often unaware they CAN request to bring in certain equipment for them to wear. It's often just a matter of working with the team's equipment manager to make that jump with them.
Whether it's the superior fit of Xenith helmets, or you feel more agile wearing Xenith shoulder pads, your team's equipment manager will work to bring in the gear you feel most comfortable and confident playing in.
