Riverside and Marshall Football receive helmet donation from Packers and Xenith

August 19, 2021

This summer, Riverside University High School and Milwaukee Marshall High School received a donation of high-quality helmets from the Green Bay Packers Xenith Helmet Give Back program.

Riverside and Marshall each received 45 helmets and the total value of the donation was just over $20,000. Xenith helmets have a five star safety rating and will aid MPS’ commitment to upgrading facilities and equipment for student-athletes.

One hundred schools across Wisconsin applied for the helmet donation and only four schools received donations, including Riverside and Marshall.

Former NFL defensive back and Super Bowl XLV champion Jarrett Bush represented the Packers and visited both Riverside and Marshall on Tuesday, August 10 to surprise the student- athletes with the new equipment.

“We feel extremely fortunate to have received this donation,” Matt Goodwin, MPS Athletics Manager, said. “The safety of our student- athletes is our number one priority and we know, with the help of this donation, we can continue to prioritize safety for years to come.”
