You should not take my research as the authoritative voice in helmet history. Nor should you expect error free writing.  So if you see glaring historical or grammatical mistakes let me know. I will be happy to attempt to rectify such failings.

I am a graduate of Gardner-Webb University and a life long fan of Clemson.  That being said I will attempt to be fair and accurate with the information presented on this site, but from time to time it will not be uncommon to see me poke a little fun at rival schools.  Harmless fun, this is a nerdy hobby of mine so let’s not take ourselves too seriously.


I started doing this helmet thing back in 2004 with the intent of documenting Gardner-Webb helmets – however – my interest soon expanded to what you see today.  Currently, I am directing my attention to the colleges of the Big South, Southern, South Atlantic Conferences, the ACC, and the schools from North and South Carolina. Most of what you see on this site is gathered from college yearbooks, media guides, programs, etc.  but that does not mean that you can not be in on the fun.  If you have photos of your favorite team and would like to see them posted here at the archive drop me a note.
