Comments

Bates appears to have returned to an earlier helmet design - one last used by the team in 2007(?) - for the 2013 season.

Some earlier Bates helmet designs have been described as follows: during the 1980s the team used white helmets with red facemasks and with an underlined, script "Bates" logo (color unspecified) ; in 1992 the facemask color changed to black and a new logo was adopted - a black "B"; this design was reportedly used until 1998.

The first helmet design above had apparently been in use for many years - at least since the late 1990s - until the black helmet appeared in 2011.

This team's current helmet design has apparently been in use since at least the 2000 football season.
