As a cornerback for the Washington Redskins, Shawn Springs learned more about head trauma than he likely cared to. Football players are often left with horrible medical consequences as a result of their work, and his 13 seasons in the NFL had opened Springs' eyes to the considerable risk.

Now, he's taking action to help solve the problem. His company Windpact works on technology for not just athletes, but soldiers, recreational facilities and other occupations in which people suffer from impacts to the head and body. And he's maklng progress: Windpact recently signed a two-year, $600,000 contract with the U.S. Army to develop padding for combat helmets.

You can read Springs' impressive story at the Columbus Dispatch, here.
