Last week we showed you that Clemson and LSU are using special Schutt helmets for spring practice that have cameras built in right above the facemask. It turns out those schools weren’t the only teams using this technology. Monday, the Twitter account for Texas Tech’s equipment department revealed that the Red Raiders will also use these helmets in practice.

These helmets allow quarterbacks to have a special and unique vantage point when watching film. They can re-live a certain play to see if they made the proper read and can also be helpful for defenders trying to understand the progression a quarterback goes through as he processes the defense.

These helmets look like they are assembled in a certain way so they do not add extra weight to the helmet the players have become accustomed to.

As other schools begin spring practice in the upcoming weeks, I’m sure we’ll see other teams utilizing this technology.
