In an effort to improve player safety while teaching the proper fundamentals of tackling, the Atlanta Public Schools Department of Athletics is purchasing state-of-the-art tackling dummies this fall for all of its high schools that compete in football.

The “Shadowman” dummy was displayed on Wednesday, July 20, at Lakewood Stadium. Representatives from Shadowman Sports conducted demonstrations for the coaching staffs of all 10 APS high schools with football teams.

Shadowman Sports designed its new tackling dummy in an effort to reduce injuries by cutting down on player-on-player contact during tackling drills. Additionally, the dummy is “mobile” so players can still learn proper tackling techniques for taking down a moving target.
