Historical Helmets

ALDERSON-BROADDUS

2013 -

2013 was the first year of play for this team.


KENTUCKY WESLEYAN

1996 - 1998 1999 - 2002 2003 - 2007
2008 2009 - 2011 2012
2013 2014 -

This team first played in 1983, so a complete helmet design history could probably be ascertained quite easily by someone at the college with access to reference materials (yearbooks, game programs, etc.). I have not received any information about pre-1996 helmet designs for KWC.

2014 was this team's first year.

In 2005, OPSU used red helmets with the letters "OPSU" in white on the sides; I will need a copy of the helmet logo in order to draw this helmet and add it to the web site. Below is a photo of the 2005 OPSU helmet - the 2006 helmet was apparently similar, but lacked the white stripe (at least during the game vs. Pittsburg State).

*1 This design featured an asymmetrical stripe sequence - the white middle stripe is flanked by a red stripe on the left side, and by a blue stripe on the right side. It was used during the first six games of the 2013 season.

*2 First worn during the 2013 home game against Texas College, this design was used during the last five games in 2013.


UNC PEMBROKE
