In the 1950's, coach Paul Brown of the Cleveland Browns invented the facemask in order to keep his star QB, Otto Graham, from getting his face injured so badly week in and week out!

Can schutt face-masks fit a riddell helmet?

Generally, the answer is yes, as many college and NFL teams buy Schutt facemasks for their Riddell Revolutions or VSR-4 helmets. Schutt makes over 80% of the world's facemasks. There are specific model Schutt facemasks that fit Revolutions, otherwise the traditional Schutt facemasks will fit the VSR-4 helmet and other Riddell helmets. They can fit, but if you're like me and have a fat head, Schutt facemasks make Riddell helmets far too tight around the jaws. I am in the middle of customizing all of my Riddell VSR-4 helmets with Schutt facemasks ( like the pros) and have found that if you use Riddell thick bar clips with the Schutt facemasks, it makes a far better fit. I'm unaware if college and pro players do this, though.
