Helmets in the News.


The Durham News | Helmet auction bodes well for Central.

Maybe the helmet is a good sign.

One of the highlights of the Triangle Pigskin Preview is the auctioning off of the four universities’ helmets.

Last Thursday for the first time in a long while, if ever, N.C. Central’s helmet wasn’t the lowest bid. It came in third at $500 behind Duke ($1,000) and UNC ($600). Those cheap N.C. State folks were last at $350.

The Eagles are nowhere near the caliber of major Division I programs yet, but maybe, just maybe, the helmet signals that better times are ahead.
