Xenith and IMG Academy Football are joining forces to give IMGA football players access to top-rated Xenith helmets and shoulder pads, allowing the athletes to play at the top of their game with confidence and comfort.
As part of the agreement with Xenith, the IMGA football players will be one of the first teams to be fully outfitted in football's most advanced helmet, Xenith Shadow, and the first to wear Xenith's new Element line of shoulder pads, a low profile, lightweight solution for all positions and playing styles.
As an athlete-centric design company, this unique strategic alliance also provides the opportunity for Xenith to work with IMGA players on future product development as they continue to innovate with the products and experiences brought to market.
Since its inception in 2013, The IMGA Ascenders have been a nationally ranked football powerhouse. The statistics tell the story of an accomplished program; Top 5 National ranking in 2015, 2016, and 2017, including an incredible 38 game win streak from 2014 - 2018. Those are the team stats, although the players tell a similar story with over 40 All-American selections (29 of those being Under Armour All-Americans), and 140 D-1 commitments (FBS & FCS). The school has become a pipeline for college recruiting, and the best coaches know if they want to win, they have to start their recruiting at IMGA.
However, the Ascenders are not just a group of talented athletes that strolled onto the field together and started to win games; the rigid structure of the football program drives their success. IMGA football players have access to D1-like facilities including both turf & grass practice fields, professional locker rooms, team meeting rooms, and a state-of-the-art strength and conditioning center & athletic training facility, amongst many other benefits. In addition to this, the athletes have access to academic resources to help them excel in the classroom as part of their commitment to education. Their schedule is intentionally crafted to help them not only excel on the field, but as leaders in their school and communities.
