Newberry had a new helmet design in 2014 (shown above) and will reportedly have another new one in 2015.
Brevard adopted a new helmet design in 2010. The team switched to white helmets with a new logo - the school name in blue letters. I would appreciate a copy of this new helmet logo. Below is a photo of the 2010 design, which apparently remained in use in 2011 and 2012. The 2013 design was similar but a set of stripes (blue/black/blue) was added; this design apparently remained in use in 2014.

2006 was the first season of football for Brevard.
In 2009 Brevard used blue helmets with a logo consisting of the school name in black letters with white outlines; I would greatly appreciate a copy of the 2009 helmet logo for this team. Below is a photo of the 2009 helmet:
I have received little information regarding earlier helmet designs for Carson-Newman, other than some photographs showing a helmet with a "CN" logo on the sides, and some others showing a "flying eagle" logo that looks similar to the one used on the 1971 Iowa helmet. Both of these appear to be on orange helmet shells, but I do not know the years of use for either design.
It has been reported to me that the helmet design used through most of the 1980s through 1995 was similar to the current design, but with the addition of three stripes (white in the middle bordered on either side by navy blue) - a photograph of this one showing the widths of the stripes would be appreciated.

I have received some verbal descriptions of some of Catawba's other earlier helmet designs; photographs of any of these would be appreciated greatly:

*1 During the 1960 season, the team captains wore a slightly different design - the stripe and facemasks were white. In 1965, large white players' uniform numerals were worn at the back of the helmet, on either side of the middle stripe.

An earlier helmet design has been described as having a red shell with a white "arrowhead" logo (as on the Kansas City Chiefs helmets); the letters "NC" were present inside the arrowhead. I suspect that this design may have been used for many years during the 1970s and/or 1980s. Photographs would be appreciated. The team was known as the "Indians" in 2007 and during prior years.
*1 Worn during the 2013 home game vs UNC Pembroke.
*2 Worn during games vs Brevard and at Carson-Newman in 2013.
*3 Worn during the playoff game at Carson-Newman in 2013 (not to be confused with the regular-season game at Carson-Newman two weeks earlier) .
*4 Photographs from the 2013 and 2014 seasons (and perhaps from 2012, also) show some helmets with a single dark gray stripe, but it has been reported to me that these were awarded to only a few players on the team (team captains).
*5 Worn during games vs Lenoir-Rhyne and at UNC Pembroke in 2014.
*6 Worn during games vs Carson-Newman and at North Greenville in 2014.

The "?-2000?" helmet design used by Wingate has been described to me as being white with a blue "W", similar to that used on the first helmet shown above; I would appreciate some photographs of this design.
