The Saints have a new creative tool to help players cool down after practice.
Designed by company in Lafayette, Louisiana, the mobile storage container has been rigged as, essentially, a giant freezer. The unit is equipped with a bunch of folding chairs to allow players to come in and sit in the 25 degree environment to cool off during, and after a hot practice.
Only a matter of time before these hit high schools in Texas, Georgia, California, Arizona, and states like those.
Here’s a video of the cooling unit, as well as a few pictures.
Here’s a quick look at the @Saints new cooling center.
Designed by a Lafayette man this facility is 25 degrees inside.

Jeff, we @MobileBox4, partnered with A&M Cold Storage, brought that in for them. LSU began using them last year and they work great for rapidly cooling the players down! We deliver to LSU today and ULL tomorrow. You'll see this across the NFL by 2020.
