September 25, 2019 (DETROIT) – Xenith and Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle, Fletcher Cox, have partnered to outfit Yazoo City High School youth with brand new Xenith X2E+ helmets for this season.
“I chose Xenith a few seasons into my career with the Eagles and I have never looked back,” said Cox. “Xenith designs for the athlete and I am excited to make their top-rated helmets available to the student athletes at my alma mater so they can perform at their best in a brand I trust.”
Fletcher Cox is a part of Xenith’s growing family of football athletes from youth to professional – including NFL ambassadors Buffalo Bills running back and 15-year NFL veteran, Frank Gore, and Cleveland Browns running back, Nick Chubb.
“Supporting the football athlete and their communities is a cornerstone of what we believe in here at Xenith,” said Ryan Sullivan, Xenith CEO.“We have partnered with many football athletes and organizations – from the Raiders, to the Browns, to further the game of football in local communities and to make this sport accessible to anyone who wants to play. It has been an honor to partner with Fletcher on this initiative and we look forward to seeing Yazoo High take the field in Xenith this season!”
