Anyone who has ever played football on any level knows that by playing in uniform and with a ton of safety pads on, it gets pretty sweltering regardless of weather. Thankfully, the folks at Auburn University have taken that into consideration.
On the school’s YouTube page, a short clip on new shoulder pads that have something of a built-in cooling system was posted. Simply put, it’s amazing.
This is great new technology and given how brutal summers can be at some SEC schools, it should only be a matter of time before other programs have their players using similar shoulder pads.
