2021 Heads Up Show Highlights
It’s been a big year for GG! On YouTube, we’ve been working on reimagining the helmet-building format and improving our content to keep things interesting and entertaining. Green Gridiron has been growing on the channel as well as the website. We’re proud of our work and we’re excited to see what’s in store for the channel next year. Let’s look back on some of the best and newest content on the channel.
In 2021, our YouTube channel gained 33K subscribers to make a total of 148K subscribers. We’re so close to our next milestone at 150K! Our channel gained 4.9 million views and 220,000 hours of watch time. On The Heads Up Show, we started 2021 with Helmet Build for Under $150. From there, we published over 80 new videos. We’re in the works of developing and perfecting new formats on YouTube.
Our team is solid. Green Gridiron now has 14 full-time employees. We’re stacked with the best staff members we’ve ever had. This year, we introduced Preston, Travis, and Amanda to the channel. We’ve wanted to introduce you to the members who make GG run because not only do we have an amazing staff, but they really love what they do.
We recently interviewed Travis, who has a strong love for USC and has been working on his helmet collection for years. You can find him on Instagram @cocklylids. Check out his video below.
Tried and True Content
Our channel is all about football helmets and what goes into them. We feature the newest products for the head and show off limited series collectibles. We’re always looking for ways to change things up on the channel as we grow. We’re the pros at helmet building. Jay and Steve have upgraded so many helmets. There are endless design possibilities and they love to experiment and explore them.
