Comments

Clarke will be a new team playing its first season of football in 2019; I do not yet have any information regarding a helmet design for this team, nor do I know how the conference divisions will be altered to accomodate the new team.

Graceland used a new helmet design in 2018 (shown above).

According to reports that I have received, Central Methodist used plain white helmets in 1972 with no stripes or logos; in 1973, a stripe and an eagle logo of unknown color(s) were added to the white helmets.

Below are descriptions of some of the "missing" helmets provided by a visitor to this website:

  • 1984: similar to the 1981-1983 helmet shown above, but with the addition of the team nickname "Wildcats" in cursive blue letters, outlined in white; I need a copy of the helmet logo in order to add this one to the website;
  • 1985: apparently similar to the 1981-1983 helmet again, but with the addition of both a blue "paw print" and the team name "Wildcats" (above the paw).
  • 1989: navy shell, white "cat head" logo; again I need a copy of the helmet logo.

Photographs of some of these may be seen below; I would appreciate clearer photographs for any of these:

*1 In 1978 amd 1979, a "C" decal was worn on the right side of each helmet, and an "S" on the left side; in 1980, both letters were worn on both sides. It appears that the 1979 decals were recycled for 1980 - photographs show some variation in the placement of the "C" relative to the "S" in 1980 (so the two letters were apparently seperate, rather than being combined onto one decal). Some players apparently used white facemasks in 1980.

*2 This design has the uniform numerals on its left side only; the right side has a large "wildcat head" logo (as represented below).

*3 This design was used during at least one game in 2017 (September 30 vs Missouri Valley). The cartoon wildcat logo is present on the left side only; the right side has the same "wildcat head" logo shown in note 5 below.

*4 This design was used during at least two games in 2017 (November 4 vs Peru State and November 11 vs Graceland). The "CSC"/paw logo is present on the left side only; the right side has the same "wildcat head" logo shown in note 5 below.

*5 The left side of this design is "blank" but a "wildcat head" logo is present on the right side (as represented below).

*1 Uniform numerals are worn on the left side only of this design; an "EU" logo is worn on the right side (as represented below).

*2 Uniform numerals are worn on the left side only of this design; an "EU" logo is worn on the right side (as represented below).

During at least three games in 2017 (October 7 vs Graceland, October 14 vs Central Methodist, and October 28 vs Missouri Valley) the white "EU" logo was replaced with a pink version of the same logo (as represented below).
