LSU equipment manager with helmet parts

Photograph By John Loomis

Each LSU player has two helmets -- and it's up to people like assistant equipment manager Jeff Grigus here to make sure the helmets are safe and game ready. The hardware is replaced (for instande, chinstrap buckles and snaps, and T-nuts and T-nut holders), pads are scrubbed clean and every helmet is inspected twice for safety once completed.
