The Moloka‘i High School football team were chosen as a winner of Riddell’s ’18 in 18’ Smarter Football program. The Moloka‘i High School football team was one of 18 winners out of 1,400 applicants across the country. Tams were chosen based on their ability to demonstrate their commitment to a smarter, safer game.

The team was notified with a special congratulatory message from Riddell brand ambassador Peyton Manning.

Moloka‘i High School coaches teach “hawk tackling,” which encourages players to initiate contact with their shoulders instead of using their heads. Off the field, the team spends time analyzing film to breakdown and improve players’ techniques.

More information about the Smarter Football program can be found online.
