YESS Program Testimonials

“Before I began wearing an Evoshield, I was sometimes timid and afraid about running routes across the middle of the field. As a 6 foot 3 and 170 pound wide receiver, I always had someone hitting me in the back of my mind when going across the middle. But once I started wearing an Evoshield, I immediately felt safe and comfortable when it came to getting hit. Many of my catches in my high school career involved me exposing my body to the defense in order to catch the football. Thanks to Evoshield, I was able to do this fearlessly. Evoshield benefitted me both mentally and physically.”
