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 & 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 & Marshall.
Former NFL defensive back and Super Bowl XLV champion Jarrett Bush
represented the Packers and visited both Riverside & Marshall on Tuesday, August 10 to surprise the student-athletes with the new equipment.
“We feel extremely fortunate to have received this donation,” said Matt Goodwin
, MPS Athletics Manager. “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.”
