Tanner says sometimes his helmet is the only thing defenders can grab, and off it comes
Oxnard, CA — Running back Phillip Tanner said the reason his helmet comes off is because he tries to make it the only thing defenders can grab.
“That’s how I protect myself,” he said. “I drop my helmet down between my shoulders. That’s the only thing for defenders to grab. I try to make it less room for them to hit, and they just seem to grab the helmet.”
