Comments

Thomas More and Washington & Jefferson have new helmet designs in 2013 (shown above).

I have received very little historical helmet information for these teams - any information would be appreciated.


Historical Helmets

BETHANY

c.1970 ? - 1999? 2001? - 2003?
2005 2006 - 2010 2011 -

I have received conflicting information as to the dates of use for the recent Bethany helmet designs. The helmet with the green oval-shaped logo was in use during at least parts of the 2001 and 2002 seasons (verified with dated photographs), and reportedly during the 2003 season also (not verified), but it has also been reported to me that during at least part of the 2002 season, the team used a logo consisting of the school's name in green capital letters, which was supposedly worn on the left sides only of the helmets, with the right sides left "blank". I have received a photograph of such a helmet (below), though its precise date is not known (it is supposedly from 2002). I would appreciate hearing from anyone familiar with the team who can clarify when these different helmet designs were in use.

During 2004, Bethany was using a helmet design which I would assume was a new one for that year. The helmets were white with green uniform numerals on the sides. I would appreciate a clear photo of one of the 2004 helmets.


GENEVA

? - 2006 2007 - 2008 2009 -

GROVE CITY

1963; 1972 1973 - 1976 1977 - 1981
1982 - 1983 1984 - 1989 1990
1991 - 1998 1999 -

SAINT VINCENT

2007 (first game) 2007 -

This team played its first season of football in 2007. The team used plain green helmets during its first game against Gallaudet, before adding helmet decals for its next game. The decals were apparently worn only on the right sides of the helmets, with the left sides left "blank". The usage of decals on the right sides only apparently continued through at least the 2009 season.

Saint Vincent had an earlier football team which was terminated in the year 1963.

In 2012 Washington & Jefferson used black helmets with the team name "Presidents" in white letters (photo below); I would appreciate a copy of this "Presidents" helmet logo, which would enable me to add this helmet to the web site.


WESTMINSTER

? - present

The current helmet design has been used (I think) for several years. Its predecessor was similar, but with the colors inverted (white "W" on blue helmet shell). Photographs of this earlier helmet would be appreciated.
