West Virginia Wesleyan and Charleston are using new helmet designs in 2012 (shown above).


Historical Helmets

CHARLESTON

Charleston's intercollegiate football team was resumed in 2003 after a 47-year absence; the school was known as Morris Harvey College when the earlier team played its last season in 1956.

2004 - 2009 2010 2011 -

The helmets used from 1987 through 1989 have been described as having navy blue shells and facemasks with a "blockstyle GSC on the side in white".

*1 I have received a report indicating that the "G" logo used on this design was worn on one side of the helmet from 1992 through 2000, but I do have some photographs from the latter part of this period showing the "G" logo on the left sides of some helmets and on the right sides of others, suggesting that the logo was probably being worn on both sides.


SETON HILL

2005 was the first year of play for the Seton Hill team.

During the last few games of the 2004 season, the decal worn on the right sides of the West Virginia Wesleyan helmets was modified by the addition of the number 32 in orange; below is the clearest photograph I have received showing this alteration. This was done as a tribute to team member Scott Stein, who died on October 10, 2004 due to injuries sustained in an auto accident.
