In 2003 Iowa Wesleyan had switched to a new helmet design by at least the game against McKendree. The new helmet logo was the team name "Tigers" in purple, with the helmet shell remaining white and the facemask apparently black. Below is a photograph. I would appreciate a copy of the helmet decal, which would enable me to add this historical design to the web site.

The first helmet design shown above had apparently been in use since at least the late 1990s. I have not received any information about earlier VCSU helmets.

*1 Uniform numerals are worn on the left side only of both designs 'B' and 'G'; the right side of each features a large "viking head" logo (as depicted below).

*2 Uniform numerals are worn on the left side only of this design; the right side has a "viking head" logo and hence looks like design 'E' above.
