Guilford and Washington & Lee used new helmet designs in 2014 (shown above).


Historical Helmets

BRIDGEWATER

? - present

Bridgewater's current helmet design has apparently been in use at least since 1999. I have not received any information about earlier helmet designs used by this team.


CATHOLIC

1994 - 1997 2000 2001 - 2005?
*see note 1 below
2006 - 2011 2012 -

During the 1998 and 1999 seasons, Catholic used black helmets with red facemasks and with the word "CATHOLIC" in a "gothic" font on the sides.

*1 Plain black helmets were worn during the 2000 season as a tribute to team member Anthony Bottoni, who died in an automobile accident in December 1999.


EMORY & HENRY

c.early 1980s - 1994 1995 - 2004 2005
2006 - 2012 2013 -

In 2005, this team used a new helmet logo - the letters "E&H" arranged diagonally; the letters were blue and the helmet shells remained yellow. I will need a copy of the helmet logo in order to add this one to the web site. Below is a photo of the 2005 helmet:

*1 This helmet design was used in 2005 on September 3 at Ferrum, Sept. 10 vs Methodist, and Sept. 17 vs Averett, with a switch to the next helmet design made on Sept. 24 vs Hampden-Sydney.

*2 In 2014 uniform numerals were worn on the left side of each helmet only; a "G" logo was used on the right sides (as shown below).

In 2014 Shenandoah used the last two helmet designs shown above in the following sequence: A-A-A; B-A-B; A-B-A; B. In 2014 helmets 'A' and 'B' both used the "SU" logo only on the left side, the right side was left "blank".

2000 was the first year for the Shenandoah football team.
