The first Charleston Southern varsity football team played in 1991. The above are all of the "known" helmet designs used by the team with the exception of those used in the mid-1990s. In 1994 and 1995 the team used what were apparently navy blue helmets with a "CSU" logo on the sides (see photo below). The color of the logo is unknown but it was probably white or gold; the color of the three stripes on the helmet is also unknown. The 1996 - 1997 design was apparently identical but lacked the stripes.

This university's first football team played in 1973, at which time the school's name was Lynchburg Baptist College and the school colors were gold and green. In 1976, the name was changed to Liberty Baptist College and blue, red, and white were adopted as the school colors. The team was affiliated with both the NAIA and NCAA for a few years before switching solely to NCAA Division II in 1983. The school was renamed Liberty University in 1985 and, in November of that year, its campus endured a devastating flood which washed away the football team's practice facility, leading to the cancellation of its last two games. A move to NCAA Division I-AA was made in 1988.

*1 The stripe sequence on this helmet went (from left to right) blue-white-red.
