Historical Helmets

BIRMINGHAM SOUTHERN

2007 only? 2008? -

BSC had a football team in 2007 for the first time since 1939.


CENTRE

? - 2001 2002 - 2004 2005 - 2007
2008 -

CHICAGO

1969 - ? ? - present

The current helmet design has apparently been in use since at least the early 1990s. Chicago has had a football team from 1969 to present, and an earlier team existed through the 1939 season.


HENDRIX

? - 1960 2013 -

Hendrix did not have a football team from 1961 through 2012.


MILLSAPS

? - 2003 2004 - 2006 2007 -

RHODES

c.late 1990s - 2001 2002 - 2008 2009 - 2010
2011 -

Some earlier Rhodes helmets have been described as follows: 1992: red helmets with white facemasks and a black "paw print" logo outlined in white; 1993 - 1995: red helmets with white facemasks, one white stripe, and a white "paw print" logo. I would appreciate photographs of any of these.


SEWANEE

? - 2005 2006 2007? -

WASHINGTON

c.late 1990s ? - 2005 2006
2007 -

I believe that Washington used a different "W" logo immediately prior to the adoption of the "?- 2005" logo - it was apparently a simple red "W" without a "bear face" atop it. Photographs of this one would be appreciated.
