Harmon wins McCarthy Riddell InSite contest

The winner of this year's McCarthy Auto Group Riddell InSite equipment contest is Harmon. The Hawks were selected and will get good use out of the new equipment as they are trying to rebuild a program that missed almost two whole seasons due to the pandemic.

Harmon coach Keith O’Neal was thrilled his school was selected to receive this equipment and the technology that goes with it.

“Here, at J.C. Harmon our football program models my “No-X Mentality” philosophy always demonstrating No Excuses, No Quitting, & No Defeat,” O’Neal said. “To receive this equipment instantly motivated my program and school as the support and motivating words has lifted my student athlete’s competitive spirits. As my student athletes continues to learn that the community, metro area, and state of Kansas wants to see our program shift into permanent competitive contender.”

Riddell, the industry leader in football helmet technology and innovation, has partnered with PrepsKC & The McCarthy Auto Group and one lucky school will win 10 Riddell Speed Flex helmets with InSite smart helmet technology and a one-year analytics subscription. InSite Analytics collects individual impact profiles and delivers weekly reports with impact analysis to your inbox.

Each helmet will be equipped with Riddell’s InSite Impact Response System, the leading integrating monitoring and alerting tool designed for the proactive protection of football players.
