D-III program pays homage to their roots with new helmet design
It doesn't take very long to walk around the campus at Alma College (D-III - MI) on game day before seeing dozens of people dressed in plaid Scottish kilts (the entire band wears the kilts), and you quickly realize that they have one of the more unique environments in college football.
Their new helmets play homage to their school's heritage with the new plaid lettering in the block "A" and a new color scheme that fades from white to red.
Below is a picture of the new helmet, along with what they've traditionally worn in the past. With so many small colleges and recruits littering the landscape of Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio, this is a great move by head coach Greg Psconda and his Alma staff to creatively set themselves apart on the recruiting trail. Recruits will eat it up.
Without knowing the role that the coaching staff (who are good friends of The Scoop) played in the creative development, we'd like the point out that we're fans of both the creativity and the paint scheme.
