Mesh Pads

from Dave Waddell of the Windsor Star,

Trevor Leahy’s daydreaming in a high school chemistry class two years might not have done much for his grades, but it’s having a healthy effect on his bank account.

With a sketch pad at hand, Leahy began doodling a design for the new goalie pads he needed.

In process, the 19-year-old reasoned with the era of swollen goalie equipment ending it was time to enter the age of deception.

“My chemistry teacher will kill me, but it wasn’t a particularly intense lecture that day,” said Leahy, now in his second year at the University of New Hampshire.

“I started with white pads and then it dawned on me to put mesh on it. I sketched it on the computer and then I got actual mesh images and it looked even better.”

Heated responses on the Boston Globe article.

I would hate to see opposition goalies wear it and love to see my goalie get better results because of it.
