LSU's splash shields 'like breathing in a Ziploc bag,' player says


Last month, LSU showed off the splash guards added to its football helmets with the goal of limiting the spread of Covid-19.

Earlier this week, Tigers linebacker Soni Fonua posted about the modified helmets on TikTok and Fonua complained about being able to breath through the helmet. While on the video another player, LSU offensive lineman Austin Deculus can be heard saying it's "like breathing in a Ziploc bag."

The LSU Athletic Department as well as the SEC have been looking at several ways to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The SEC is currently set to play a 10-game conference only schedule.
