The Inaugural Florida High School Football Helmet Challenge(TM) has launched!
Starting now through Saturday, July 23 at 6:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM CT, fans can vote for their favorite helmets in each of the eight classifications as well as another bracket for independents to see who will advance to Round 2 of the Helmet Challenge.
The Florida High School Football Helmet Challenge(TM), brought to you by strategic partner, HSPN Sports(TM), was created to celebrate the helmets and their unique looks that each team puts a spin on each and every year and is sure to be fun for all fans of high school football around Florida.
Helmets for each bracket were selected based upon uniqueness, boldness and creativeness. If you don’t see your team’s favorite helmet doesn’t mean is a slight to your team. The weight of some helmets weighed upon just a little bit more than others.
State champions and runner-ups from each classification as well as all conference winners for independents were automatically selected to take part of the helmet challenge. The bracket was shuffled up as to who slotted where except state champions and runner-ups who were given the top two spots first. The brackets also tried to give as much distances to rivals as much as possible to create some energy in the brackets.
All brackets are single elimination with Round 5 being the finals for all brackets which include a championship and 3rd place contest.
