Comments

Kansas Wesleyan and Southwestern will both have new helmet designs in 2015 (shown above).

Tabor used a new design in 2014; the new helmet featured the school name in blue letters, worn on gold helmet shells (photo below); I will need a copy of the artwork for this helmet decal in order to add this new helmet to the website.


Historical Helmets

BETHANY

2001 - 2003? 2004 - 2005 1984 - 2000; 2006 - 2011
2012 2013 -

BETHEL

2005 ? - 2004; 2006 - 2012 2013 -
*see note 1 below

During the 2013 season the left side of the helmet was "blank" but the right side featured a "BC" logo, as depicted below.


FRIENDS

? - 2002 2003? -

I have seen at least one photograph of the current helmet design which seemed to imply that the outline around the "F" logo was red rather than black; the photo was probably from the 2003 season. I would appreciate hearing from anyone at Friends who could confirm whether the team ever did use such a decal.


KANSAS WESLEYAN

? - 1999 2000 - 2013 October 11, 2014
*see note 1 below
2014 2015 -
*see note 2 below

*1 Worn during the 2014 home game vs Tabor. The "ribbon" was worn only on the left side of each helmet; the "coyote head" remained on the right sides.

*2 In 2014 a large "coyote head" logo was worn on the right side only of each helmet (as shown below); the left side was "blank".


McPHERSON

c.early 1980s ? - 1999? 2000?
2001 only? 2002 2003 - 2006
2007 - 2012 2013 2014 -

I am not certain that the second and third images above represent two distinct helmets. During 2000, McPherson apparently used the "M" logo on the left side of its helmets, and players' numerals on the right side. Whether that scheme was in place during 1999 and earlier season, I am not sure, but I do know that numerals were used on at least one side of the helmet during 1999.


OTTAWA

? - present

The current helmet design has apparently been used for many years (at least since 1999); I have never received any information about earlier helmet designs used by this team.


SAINT MARY

? - 2002? 2003 - 2009 2010 -

SOUTHWESTERN

? - 2001 2002 - 2014 2015 -

The 2015 helmet design has numerals on the left side only; the right side has an "SC" logo (as shown below).


STERLING

? - 2000? 2001? - 2003 2004 - 2010?

During at least some games in 2014, some Sterling helmets had gray facemasks rather than blue ones.
