Central Lakes and North Dakota State College of Science adopted new helmet designs in 2014 (shown above), as did (I think) Itasca C.C. (also shown above).

Dakota College at Bottineau made a helmet design change recently (possibly at the beginning of the 2014 season); the helmet stripes which were used previously were abandoned, and the logo was modified slightly - the "axe" within the logo now leans leftward instead of rightware (as seen in photograph below). I would appreciate a copy of this new helmet logo.

Northland C.T.C. will have again field a football team in 2015 following a one-year absence. I do not presently know how the divisional alignment of this conference will change to accomodate Northland, which was previously in the North Division. I also do not yet have any information about Northland's 2015 helmet design.

In both 2013 and 2014 Southwest Mississippi C.C. used blue helmets with a "bear paw" logo containing an "S" (as in photograph below). I will need a copy of this logo in order to add this helmet to the web site.

ASA College Miami is a new team which will play its first season in 2015. I have received no information about a helmet design for this team.

Arkansas Baptist began using a new helmet logo at some unknown point in 2010 (but at least by the game against Kilgore). The new logo appears to be the letters "ABC" with something (probably a buffalo) beneath the letters (photo below). I would appreciate a better photograph, a copy of the helmet logo, and information about when this design was first used. I do not know if this design is still in use.

EMCC's sequence of helmet designs in recent years is as follows:

  • 2014: D-B-D; D-D-E; F-B-F; B-E-G (including two playoff games and the NJCAA National Championship game vs Iowa Western C.C.)
  • 2013: B-C-D; D-C-B; D-C-B; D-B-D (including two playoff games and the NJCAA Natinonal Championship game vs Georgia Military College).
  • 2012: A-A-A; B-A-B; A-B-B; A (including one playoff game).
  • 2011: B-B-A; B-A-A; A-A-B; A-A-A (including two playoff games and the NJCAA National Championship game at Arizona Western).

*1 First worn September 1, 2011 (vs Mississippi Gulf Coast C.C.). This design is evidently a tribute to William "Bull Cyclone" Sullivan, who was head coach at East Mississippi Junior College through most of the 1950s and 1960s. In 1984 Sports Illustrated published a lengthy cover story about Sullivan, who had "skull and crossbones" painted onto his players' helmets during at least part of his career.

During at least one early-season game in 2010 (August 29 vs Hutchinson) Kilgore used a new logo consisting of the letters "KC" in front of a silver star with blue outline (photo below). All photos that I have seen from subsequent games in 2010 show the team returning to the blue star logo that the team had used in 2009 and earlier.
