Comments

This conference will sponsor football for the first time in Fall of 2017.

Catholic used at least two new helmet designs in 2016 (one shown above).


Historical Helmets

CATHOLIC

1994 - 1997 2000 2001 - 2005?
*see note 1 below
2006 - 2011 2012 - 2015 2016 (1st 4 games(?))
2016 -

During the 1998 and 1999 seasons, Catholic used black helmets with red facemasks and with the word "CATHOLIC" in a "gothic" font on the sides.

*1 Plain black helmets were worn during the 2000 season as a tribute to team member Anthony Bottoni, who died in an automobile accident in December 1999.

I have received partial information, but no photographs yet, of some earlier Coast Guard helmets. The predecessor of the first one shown above has been described as having a "bear paw" logo. The team is reported to have used plain orange helmets, both with and without stripes, during some years.

*1 Worn during the 2013 home game against Hampden-Sydney.

*2 Worn during the 2014 home game against Saint Lawrence.


MAINE MARITIME

*see note 1 below

The dates of use for these helmets are quite uncertain; I would appreciate hearing from anyone who can clarify the years of use for each design. The second and third shown above were used during at least parts of the 2003 and 2005 seasons, respectively.

*1 The 2014 design used uniform numerals only on the left side of each helmet; on the right sides a large "anchor" logo was used (as depicted below).

In 2007, this team used what was apparently a new logo for that season - the team name "Pride" in white letters, as may be seen in the photograph below. I would appreciate a copy of the helmet logo for this one, which would enable me to draw this one and add it to the web site.

Another helmet design used by this team in recent years featured the team name "Pride" in white, cursive letters; below is a photograph of this one. Again I would appreciate a copy of this helmet logo, as well as information about when it was used.
