Historical Helmets

FINDLAY

2003 - 2006 ? - 2002; 2007 - 2012 2013 -

During Findlay's second game of the 2015 season (September 12 at Tarleton State) the team used a modified helmet design - the logo appears to have a 'U.S. flag' pattern, and the stripe sequence may be different. I would appreciate a clearer photo of this design than the one below, which is the most useful one I have yet found.

2008 was the first year of varsity play for this team (a club-level team played in 2007 and earlier years).

*1 The 2016 helmet design featured a logo commemorating the tenth year of the Lake Erie football team and the college's 160th anniversary. The logo included a large "X" (for the number ten), flanked by "2007" and "2016"; beneath the X is "1856". This logo was worn on the left side only of each helmet; the right side featured the same "STORM" logo which was worn on both sides in 2015.
