Historical Helmets

BETHEL

1993 - 1996 1997 - 1998 1999 - 2001
2002 (1st 3 games) 2003? - 2018 -
'A' 'B' 'C'
2019 2019 2020* -

In 2019 Bethel used the last two helmet designs shown above in the following sequence: A-A-A; B-B-B; B-B-A; ?-? (no information for November 9 at Pikeville or November 16 vs Campbellsville). 'C' was apparently used during all games of the 'spring 2021' season.

In 2002 Bethel used gold helmets with (I think) purple facemasks. A purple "B" logo was worn on the sides of the helmets during the first three games (as shown in the photograph below), but these were abandoned following a mid-season coaching staff change. I would appreciate a clearer photograph of this design, which would enable me to add this historical helmet to the website.


BLUEFIELD

2012 - 2016 2017 -
*see note 1 below

2012 was the first season for this team (Bluefield also had a team during an earlier era which last played in 1941).

*1 The 2017 helmet design has the ram logo on its left side only; uniform numerals are worn on the right side (as represented below).

During recent years Campbellsville has used the following sequences of helmet designs:

Campbellsville used a new helmet design in 2006; the helmets appeared to be the same color as in 2005, but a new logo, the team name "TIGERS" in white letters, was worn on the helmets.

*1 These designs both have a large block "C" (like that worn on the 2009-2015 helmets) on the back side of the helmet.


UNIVERSITY OF THE CUMBERLANDS

2001? - 2005 2006 - 2007 2008 - 2011

This school's name was changed from Cumberland College to University of the Cumberlands on January 7, 2005. Cumberland College had changed the names of its athletic teams from "Indians" to "Patriots" sometime around the year 2001.

I have received a photograph of an earlier helmet said to have been used by the team from 1985 through 1995 - the helmet is similar in color to the present helmet, but with a white facemask and a logo depicting a large, block "C" with a "spear" passing through it diagonally, all in white. I would appreciate a copy of this logo, as well as any information about other earlier helmets. In particular, photographs from the 1996 - 2001 period would be appreciated.

Plain blue helmets were used during game #1 (at Edward Waters) but a "P" logo was added for game #2 (at West Georgia). At some unknown 'point' a pale blue stripe was also added - it was in place by at least game #6 (vs Webber International). I would appreciate a report as to when the stripe first appeared.
