In the early 1920's helmets were leather.In the 1930's people tried to make helmets out of plastic,but they shaddered and caused worse injuries.So leather helmets survived to see another game.In the late 1960's plastic helmets were tried again and this time they suceeded.

Hundreds, as college football started in the 1870s, and the NFL started in the 1920s.
