*see note 1 below

The Utica football team first played in 2001 and I believe that the helmet designs shown above are the only ones that have been used by the team.

*1 The "moose head" logo is worn on the left side only of this design; on the right side is the same 'UTICA PIONEERS' logo worn on both sides of the helmet in 2016 and earlier seasons.
