Tim Healy has been passionate about football for all of his life as a fan, player and coach. After playing four years at St. John’s University in Collegeville, MN, Tim signed a free agent contract with the New Orleans Saints. As a father of seven, he has coached his three boys in more than 10 seasons of youth football and also coached for three years at Roseville High School in Minnesota.

Tim has learned many life lessons and made lifelong friends on and around the field and feels strongly that football builds virtue and character. This passion led him to join the TackleBar Football™ team, a safer game that can and will encourage greater participation. Prior to TackleBar, Tim owned a medical device distributorship representing Medtronic Spine and Biologics. Tim is the acting CEO and in charge of all of the sales initiatives.

"TackleBar Football eliminates tackling while still maintaining contact. Players learn the fundamentals of the game while decreasing their chances of concussions and injuries at such a young age. I saw this first hand. It’s very fun and very safe. With almost 200 kids playing TackleBar Football last year, we had zero concussions. Moms have told me that they actually enjoyed watching the game of football once they realized their sons were not going to get hurt."
