How You Can Help
Is your team missing from the
collection? If so, I need your help. The reason it is missing is because I
have insufficient data or no data at all in order to design the helmet for
inclusion on this web page. The most valuable information I need in order to
complete the helmet are quality pictures and a copy of the helmet logo (see
If your team's helmet is a plain color without logos and
stripes, all I need to design the helmet is a description of the helmet color
and facemask color, however a picture would also be nice. For example, I
received an email a while back with this description. "Hillcrest has a
silver helmet with a royal blue facemask." That is a very good description
of a helmet with no logo or stripes. If your team has a common logo, such as the
"Michigan wing" or "Arizona Cardinals" helmet logos, that
will work, as well, for a description. I just need to know the color of the logo
at that point.
If your team has a logo on one side of the helmet only, I need to
know which is the logo side and which is the "blank" side, so it can
be designed and displayed properly. I do and will display both sides of a single
Why do I need pictures of the
helmet? The reason is simple. I need the picture for proper placing of the
logo and stripes, if any, as well as proper sizing of the logo. Also, in some
pictures, darker colors are difficult to distinguish, so with these, I will also
need a description of the helmet and facemask colors.

that I need!
THE most important thing that I need is a copy of the helmet logo (decal)
or an icon of the actual logo. Examples of these are shown below. Please note
that if you are taking a picture of the logo (decal), it needs to be taken BEFORE
the decal has been applied to the helmet. Please take the picture as
perpendicular to the logo (decal) as possible. The most preferred method is
using a scanner to scan the logo (decal). I should also mention that all of the
helmets displayed on this web site show the right side of the helmet, so I MUST
have a logo for the right side of the helmet, unless they are completely reversible
(that is, the logo on the left side is a complete mirror image of
the logo on the right side).
will more than gladly accept helmet decals in regular mail, also. If you would
like to mail a decal to me, email me so I
can give you my address. I will even pay for the postage of sending the logo, if
you so desire. If you do send me a decal, make sure it is protected somehow in
your packaging as they are fragile and bend VERY easily.

what I consider "good quality" photographs of actual helmets are seen

Notice how these pictures display
the helmets, showing the helmet logo and stripes? (the helmet on the right has
no stripes and the one in the middle has no logo, but DOES have stripes) They
also show clearly, the color of the helmets and facemasks.
Corrections - I, like
everyone else, am not perfect. If you see a helmet that is not completely
correct, let me know, so I can fix it and get the correct helmet displayed.
Please email what needs to be corrected to
me, please. Also, make note of the fact that I got much of my conference, class
and district information from
are a good source of information, but I noticed that in doing my research of the
teams on this site, that some of the information is conflicting. Therefore, you
may notice a school name or conference name or other information may not be
correct. If you find this to be the case, please let me know so I can correct
it. The last thing I want to do is upset people by having erroneous information
about their schools. If you find something to be incorrect, I apologize for it
If you have any questions about any
of what I've just mentioned, please feel free to
email me. I will answer any and all questions the best that I can.
This is a new addition to the site. I felt
that the addition of uniforms would help add something new and different
to the site. I will explain what I am looking for as far as
information/pictures for uniforms. If you would like your school's
uniforms added to the site, please
First of all, I would like to display an
example of what I will be putting together as far as uniforms go.
Generally, a school will have a home and a road uniform. Once in a great
while, a school will have alternate uniforms that they wear on occasion.
This example is from a school in Illinois that I recently completed.
Notice that this school has a standard home and road uniform (top two),
a home and road uniform for rivalry games (middle two) and an alternate
home and road uniform (bottom two).
The uniform display that I have put together
displays the uniform as it would look on a player out on the playing
field. Also included in the display is the current helmet that go with
Notice that the display shows the front,
left side and rear view of the uniforms. This is basically what I would
like to have for pictures of your uniforms. I need these views to
properly design the uniforms in the most accurate manner possible.
Most, if not all uniforms have a
manufacturers logo on the jersey and the pants. In the example above,
the Nike logo is on both the jersey and the pants. On the white pants
above, the helmet logo is on the opposite leg of the pants as the Nike
logo. I need clear enough photographs of all details of the entire
uniform as they will be vital to the accuracy of the completed product.
This means front, side and rear views of the uniform will need to be
photographed. I need any uniforms that are worn to be photographed. If
the pants are the same for both home and away uniforms, I only need one
set of pictures of the pants.
I will also need a good description of the
colors in the uniform as colors in photographs don't always display the
real colors. To ensure accuracy, I would also like to have this
descriptive information in addition to the photographs.
I will accept action photos also, but they
must be of good quality. I prefer to have the photos taken with the
uniforms being "modeled", but if that's not possible, then take the
photos in a way that is best for you.
Please take note that this is still a helmet
site. The uniforms are much more complicated and take more time to do
than the helmets do, but I will do the uniforms as time permits.

is required, please feel free to
