USFL Shows Off Helmet-Cam, First Down Markers During Final Scrimmages

We are seven days from the official kick-off of the USFL season. The Birmingham Stallions will take on the New Jersey Generals on Fox and NBC at 7:30 pm ET on April 16th.

On Friday, the league had its first set of scrimmages. These games were designed to test the TV production, in-game innovations and let the new officials get in some practice. After the game, the league shared some innovations we will see on game day.

Hemet Cam

The first football player to wear a helmet-cam was Kerwin Bell, quarterback of the Orlando Thunder. On March 25th, 1991, he wore it first for the World League of American Football. The innovation was never really used in the NFL. Now, the USFL will be giving it a try.

Two players from each team will be wearing a helmet-cam during games.

“See the game like NEVER before. Starting next Saturday on FOX and NBC, two players from each team will be wearing helmet cams in EVERY USFL game. “

First Down Markers

The league also showed off its new first down marker system. Something head of officiating Mike Pereira talked about a few months ago.

“First down measurements that are more accurate than ever Take a look at the first down technology that will be featured this season in the USFL”

All Access At Half Time

The league will also give fans a behind-the-scenes look at halftime.

“When we say all-access, we mean it. Step into the locker rooms during halftime for a peek behind the curtain, starting next Saturday on @FOXSports and @NBCSports.”

Next Saturday will be a big day, and the players have been practicing hard. The world will now view all the prep on Saturday, April 16th and 17th.
