Nick Chubb & Xenith donate 65 Epic+ helmets to Cedartown High School.
Born and raised in Cedartown, Georgia, NFL star running back Nick Chubb was instilled with the importance of community from an early age. That’s why when Nick transitioned from college to the NFL, he was compelled to give back to the community that raised him.
This same importance in community, Nick found in Xenith, the football helmet he wore throughout his entire career. It was a perfect opportunity to build a meaningful relationship and give back to Cedartown.
Nick partnered with Xenith to donate 65 Epic+ helmets to the Cedartown football team, giving back the same helmet that kept him in the game and allowed him to take the field with confidence for every step of his football journey.

Nick first tried on a Xenith helmet early in his high school career. He was having problems with his helmet getting pulled off during games, so his head coach, Scott Hendrix, fit him in a Xenith. The helmet’s adaptive fit and shock matrix was the perfect remedy. The helmet allowed Nick to focus on his game and play with confidence finishing his high school career with over 6,000 rushing yards and 102 rushing touchdowns in his junior and senior year combined.
Nick’s football journey continued at the University of Georgia where he continued to rack up yardage and break records. His true freshman year he was second in SEC rushing yards despite only starting eight games. As Nick progressed through his college career, the show continued, reaching 13 consecutive 100 yard games, becoming second all-time in school rushing yards, and second in all-time SEC rushing yards.
In the 2018 NFL draft Nick was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the second round (35thoverall). He continued his record breaking ways in week four against the Oakland Raiders when he carried the ball for over 100 yards with two touchdowns on only three carries. Nick was the fourth player in NFL history to break 100 yards rushing on three or less carries. A few weeks later, Nick ran his way into Cleveland Browns’ history, breaking off a 92-yard rushing touchdown, the longest rushing touchdown in Cleveland Browns history. Nick finished his rookie year with 996 yards, four shy of the 1,000 mark.
Despite all of these achievements, Nick hasn’t lost sight of what’s important to him; giving back to the community that raised him.
