Friday Night Lights Shine Brighter In Chrome: IMG Academy Football | The Brotherhood, Episode 4
There's something so surreal about suiting up for a Friday night football game. It might be that feeling of gratitude to be able to compete, it might be the adrenaline prior to that first whistle, and it could even be the confidence that all of the hard work you've put into practice will pay off that evening. Those emotions are magnified even further when the game is broadcast on national television on ESPNU. And, when the IMG Academy football program unveiled the newest addition to their uniform collection, Xenith Chrome Helmets, they knew that this away game in Tennessee would be that much more electrifying.
Xenith is IMG Academy's official equipment provider, and they are committed to providing IMG student-athletes with the safest and most effective headgear in the game.
Safety is the most important thing. We want to protect our players with the best equipment. For us to be successful here, the equipment has to be successful with us."
- Bobby Acosta, IMG Academy National Team Head Coach
