BEREA, Ohio — The Cleveland Browns are giving back to the community, issuing more than 350 new Xenith football helmets to schools across Northeast Ohio.

Nordonia High School received 100 helmets, Fairport Harding Middle School received 100 helmets, Mansfield High School received 86 helmets and Hudson Middle School received 86 helmets.

The new Xenith helmets are rated five-star by Virginia Tech’s helmet ratings and aim to advance player safety in Northeast Ohio.

Nordonia High School was surprised on Friday morning with the new equipment. The special event was highlighted by a message from DT Larry Ogunjobi.

The helmet giveaway was a part of the HELMETS program, which has issued nearly 2,200 helmets to youth and high school football programs.

“The Browns are incredibly proud to support youth and high school football participation across Ohio, including through HELMETS, which supplies new equipment to deserving programs who participate in USA Football’s certification training,” said Browns Vice President of Community Relations Jenner Tekancic. “We thank all of the coaches, players and our partners – Meijer, University Hospitals and Xenith – for their continued commitment to promoting the health and safety of youth athletes, as well as for inspiring a love of football.”

The schools that received the new helmets were selected at random, the team said. To learn more about registering a local program, click here.
