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

2000 was the first year for the Shenandoah football team.

*1 On each of these helmet designs the logo is worn on the left side only; the right side is "blank".

*2 For four games in 2017 Shenandoah used white helmets with the number 18 on the left side of each, in recognition of the football team's 18th year; in 2018 and 2019 the team has done likewise with the numbers 19 and 20, respectively. On each of these designs the numbers are worn on the left side only; on the right side is the team nickname 'Hornets' (as shown below).

2003 was the first year of play for the SVU football team. The above helmet designs are all of the different ones used by the team since its formation, to the best of my knowledge.

*1 Uniform numerals are worn on the left side only of this design; on the right side is a "knight head" logo (as represented below).
