He noticed that the compression shorts worn during his practices stayed bone dry whilst the shirts he would wear under his jersey had to be changed constantly because they would become soaked with sweat so quickly. This inspired him to create a t-shirt made out of a similar material to the shorts to avoid the sweating problem. He tried them out on his team mates and friends who played in the NFL and they worked perfectly. Many big name brands quickly followed in his footsteps and started producing their own shirts with the same properties. This clothing was revolutionary and made a huge difference to the lives of many athletes, wearing clothing that stops moisture from gathering is also significantly healthier for the body.
