This season, the Pleasant Hill High School Roosters have been equipped with Riddell’s InSite Impact Response System through a partnership between PrepsKC, McCarthy Auto Group and Riddell.

The Riddell InSite Impact Response System is a helmet-based impact monitoring technology designed to alert coaches and trainers when significant single or multiple impacts are sustained during a football game or practice.

Greg Smith, Head Football Coach at Pleasant Hill, is thankful that the Roosters were chosen to receive this innovative technology.

“We are very thankful for the generosity of Riddell and the McCarthy Auto Group in allowing us to have this technology that allows us to have another tool in improving player head protection,” Smith said.

The Roosters have used these helmets for the past few weeks including last week’s 43-7 win over Boonville. This week they look to keep their season going as they travel to Hogan Prep for a district semifinal contest.
