Even big league NFL players are constantly covered by helmets, making them usually unrecognizable, both as an athlete and the people they are off the gridiron. To combat this, Uninterrupted’s Glass Helmet Project aims to tackle “The Helmet Effect” and to give fans the opportunity to connect and appreciate the athletes behind the masks for more than a football player. As noted by James himself, the new see-through helmet is to allow an athlete to be seen and heard, unlike the current football helmets which cover the athletes’ faces. “Because they are, at the end of the day, they are people as well,” James shares. The helmets were designed by Victor Solomon.
