For a single game in 2015 (October 17 vs Michigan Tech) GVSU used a new helmet design; on the left side of each helmet was a cartoon version of the school's 'Louie the Laker' mascot (see photo below). I have been unable to locate the artwork for this design. The logo was worn on the left side only of each helmet, with the right side left 'blank'.

In 2016 GVSU used two of the above helmet designs in the following sequence: G-H-G; H-G-G; H-G-H; G-H-H; G (the last two games being NCAA Division II playoff games vs Texas A&M-Commerce and Ferris State).

In 2015 GVSU used: A-A-A; A-A-A; E-A-F; A-F-A; A-A-A (the last four games being NCAA Division II playoff games at Ashland, at Ferris State, at Colorado State-Pueblo, and at Shepherd).

In 2014 GVSU used: C-A-A; A-A-D; A-B-B; A-B.

In 2013 GVSU used: A-A-A; A-A-B; B-A-A; B-B-B; B-B-B (the last four games being NCAA Division II playoff games vs Saginaw Valley State, at Colorado State-Pueblo, vs West Texas A&M, and at Northwest Missouri State).

*1 This design is 'blank' on its left side but has a 'laker' logo on its right side (as represented below).

*2 Uniform numerals are present on the left side only of this design; on the right side is a "GV" logo (as shown below).
