On Thursday, Peyton Manning’s newest football venture brought him to Austin, where he spent some time visiting with Texas players, coaches and equipment staff.

The retired five-time NFL MVP is advising helmet manufacturer Riddell in its efforts to make football safer. Riddell recently outfitted the Longhorns with its new Insite helmets.

Inside each helmet is a set of sensors that gather information on G-forces and the direction of each hit received. Apparently, they also come with a visit from a two-time Super Bowl champion.

Check out some of the Longhorns’ social media reactions below.
