What began as a single bar has now grown to a much more complex, more comfortable and safer piece of your helmet. We offer Shutt facemasks to fit the various Schutt model helmets in a large variety of shapes to accomodate the different positions on the football field. Quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers wear facemasks that are open around the eyes and have limited bars to enable an open view of the field and be as lightweight as possible. The ROPO and EGOP are good examples of facemasks worn for these positions.
Fullbacks (blocking backs), tight ends, safeties and linebackers wear facemasks with a narrower eye opening and additional lower bars, to still allow a clear view but enable more protection for the blocking and tackling they perform on the field. ROPO DW and EGOP2 are excellent examples of facemasks worn by these players.
Linemen wear longer facemasks with additional bars for the optimal protection required to fight in the trenches. RJOP-UB-DW is a common facemask worn by these players.
Whatever position you play, we have the best facemask for you in a large assortment of colors and sizes. If you are unsure of your choice, we will be glad to help you to maximize your comfort and safety.
