As football helmets improve in preventing players from getting concussions, high schools must search for the latest models to keep their students safe.
This can prove to be an expensive task, as technology advancements are made each year.
Harrisburg graduate Mark Elmblade spent 13 years selling football helmets as a rep for Ridell. He is using that experience to build his new company Armor Zone, which leases football helmets to high schools and youth programs.

Officers found illegal fireworks and the tools to make improvised explosives in an apartment near 8th and Washington after the person living there hurt himself in an explosion early Thursday morning, Eugene Police said.
About 40 students from Cesar Chavez Elementary School filled a backpack with free school supplies Saturday. Afterward each student went shopping at Valley River Center with a mentor for a $150 school clothes shopping spree.
Parents like Sarah Curry, who has a daughter going into 3rd grade, said the generous donation from the Eugene Active 20-30 Club will prepare her child for the school year.
JR Laing, a member of theActive 20-30 Club, says she wants every student to feel proud and stand tall each day they walk through the classroom door.
The Eugene Education Foundation is asking you to stuff a school bus with school supply donations to help limited-income students in the Eugene area.
“It’s very expensive for many families, and when students arrive to class it's very important that they have their backpacks, the supplies needed for their classes so that they have the tools needed for success,” said Molly Lajoie, foundation executive director of the Stuff The School Bus promotion.
