With more focus placed on protecting football players against concussions and other head injuries, there's a clinic in town helping the cause.

Atlanta hosted one of 34 Glazier Clinics across the country. It took place Friday night at the Westin Atlanta Perimeter North Hotel in Dekalb County.

Manufactures of a soft-shell helmet demonstrated how their products protect players. More than 21,000 players at the youth, high school, and collegiate level are wearing the Guardian Caps.

"We have a bunch of fundamental sessions," said clinic director, Allen Means. "That's our passion, educating football coaches and we reach out to a lot of coaches nationwide and around Atlanta."
