Jake Naso

#56 -- Duke University -- Faceoff Midfielder

Why I Use JackalJaw:

  • "It's as much a performance piece for me as a safety piece. I feel like it allows me to play my best game and not worry about anything else."
  • "Guys are coming in off the wings, this keeps my helmet centered and stable."
  • "This is my second year using Jackal."
  • "I can keep my eyes on the ball, giving my team the best chance to gain possession."
  • "There have definitely been some times where I've gotten hit running down the teeth of the defense, and I don't have to worry about my helmet coming off or the contact because I know my helmet will be secure."
  • "The materials have some flex and give, absorbing contact really well."
  • "Jackal Jaw gives me more of a snug fit."
  • "In the scrum, I can sell out on plays and get up with my helmet on straight."
