McMurry's 1962 football helmets featured a strange symbol that I cannot identify from the clearest available photographs (below). What is it? Does anyone have a clearer photograph?

In the mid-1980s McMurry used several different helmet designs which I am presently unable to add to the web site; below are photographs of several of these:

I would greatly appreciate better photographs of any of these helmets or additional information, particularly from former team members, equipment managers, etc.

The 1991-1993 helmet featured the same "McM" logo worn on the previous helmet. I am unsure about the colors on this helmet, but it would appear that the helmet shell was silver and that the logo was maroon.

In 2007 and 2008 McMurry used the helmet design shown in the photograph below. The helmets were maroon with a new logo, a large "M" with the school name across it. I would appreciate a copy of the helmet logo for this one, which would enable me to add this historical helmet to the web site.

*see note 1 below

In 2005, OPSU used red helmets with the letters "OPSU" in white on the sides; I will need a copy of the helmet logo in order to draw this helmet and add it to the web site. Below is a photo of the 2005 OPSU helmet - the 2006 helmet was apparently similar, but lacked the white stripe (at least during the game vs. Pittsburg State).

*1 The 2012 OPSU helmet features an asymmetrical stripe sequence - the white middle stripe is flanked by a red stripe on the left side, and by a blue stripe on the right side.
