Comments

Avila is a new member of this conference for the 2018 season.

Avila, Bethel and Southwestern all used new helmet designs in 2017 (shown above).

McPHERSON

c.early 1980s ? - 1999? 2000?
2001 only? 2002 2003 - 2006
2007 - 2012 2013 2014

I am not certain that the second and third images above represent two distinct helmets. During 2000, McPherson apparently used the "M" logo on the left side of its helmets, and players' numerals on the right side. Whether that scheme was in place during 1999 and earlier season, I am not sure, but I do know that numerals were used on at least one side of the helmet during 1999.


OTTAWA

? - present

The current helmet design has apparently been used for many years (at least since 1999); I have never received any information about earlier helmet designs used by this team.
