  1. For IMG Academy, I continued with the chrome helmet but worked in a silhouette of the logo to contrast the blue and silver chrome.
  2. For Imhotep Charter, I took elements from Boise State's Ghost Horse and elements from the old Michigan Panthers logo.
  3. For St. John Bosco, I went with a George Costanza theme. Kidding.
  4. Concept helmet for Corona Centennial. I had originally attempted a clone of U of Cincinnati's helmet, but Cinci has a more vertical logo which works better with the scratch marks. I had also considered making this a skin helmet with chrome underneath for the scratches, but that felt a bit too far fetched (particularly for a high school).
  5. Aquinas Institute of Rochester drove the most clicks despite only having one helmet for impressions.
  6. As promised, here are some helmets to hopefully leave on a high note. Out of of the Super 25, I wanted to reward schools which drove interaction and traffic to my Instagram and Twitter accounts. In all, six schools (plus an at-large school picked randomly among my followers) each received concept helmets. Without further ado, here they are. Up first, the randomly selected winner. It makes for a nice story: a 3-7 team, a player who recently lost his mother. I'm glad they liked the home/away concept. They are both in consideration to actually wear next season (note The Shoe in the reflection, where state championships are played):

  8. Two more helmets to wrap up the project. The first is a blue helmet with chrome white decal: And the final helmet was worn in the playoffs, somewhat reminiscent of a Florida-style helmet: I have to admit: after making the Hydrographics full-skin helmet, it feels like a bit of a let-down to finish the project with these two helmets. But ... I will soon be wrapping the contest on Twitter and Instagram to see which schools wins a concept helmet. I've already made three schools and will make at least three more. Concept helmets will probably roll out end of next week. Until then, thanks to all for the C&C on my first concept portfolio.
  9. And here is the complementary chrome helmet with the blue decal:
  10. Helmet style #6 (i.e., the variations sometimes were unique helmets, other times a decal changeout). ANYWAY, chrome helmet, white decal, pretty reflection of the Rainbow Mountain Wilderness in the background of one of the nicest complexes in high school sports.
  11. Thanks much for the feedback. I couldn't seem to find the true decal, so I drew this from scratch. Do you have something for future reference? If I do this again for the preseason 25, then it would be more authentic.
  12. As promised, here is the first of a few additional helmets uncovered for Bishop Gorman. They wore this gray helmet in the second round of the playoffs against Las Vegas Centennial.
  13. I just learned that Bishop Gorman wore an additional two helmets last year. That's seven caps for a high school. I am on spring break, but will be posting the additional two helmets week after next.
  14. And here's the last helmet: Hydrographics made a full skin pattern for BG, which I replicated below. Once Instagram/Twitter voting closes on the custom concept contest (in the next week or two), I'll post the helmets I've made. In the mean time, thanks to everyone for their C&C.
  15. Second-to-last helmet for Bishop Gorman. Black Matte shell, chrome decals and stripes, two-tone facemask, and note the back of helmet. I thought it was interesting how they placed the players' last names on the helmet and left the jersey blank. Featured name is Tate Martell, QB who is committed to Texas A&M.
  16. Helmet number two for Bishop Gorman. Yes, that is Fertitta Field and the foothills of the Rainbow Mountain Wilderness in the reflection.
  17. I don't think we are that far away from it. Teams are traveling cross-country to play one another during the regular season. The CCHS coach actually proposed a fairly unique idea: Colquitt County HS Coach Proposes 4-team High School Playoff That said, he has been known to act a little outside the norm: Coach head butts player, opens bloody gash on head You may begin comparing him to Varsity Blues starting ... now.
  18. On to the national champions ... Bishop Gorman has an impressive resume: - Seven-straight state championships - Thirty-seven game win streak - Back-to-back National Champions - A fight song written and recorded by none other than Snoop Dogg (seriously) Five helmets in all. Let's do this ...
  19. Thanks much for the feedback and fact checking. You are right about the number of college signees - I had read an article which said 13, but I believe that these only counted top/blue chip prospects. I'll edit the post with the corrected count according to the Academy. That said, the game against Ameican Heritage is an interesting one. It was recognized as a preseason game. I'm unfamiliar with high schools playing full-length games as opposed to situational scrimmages, but at least hear two teams did just that. USA Today and Maxpreps both list IMG as 9-0. Further, Maxpreps does not list IMG or American Heritage on one another's schedules for 2015. But it is a worthwhile asterisk in my mind which I will add to the record. As for luring players down, it's a snowball effect at this point. "Two Days in April" was a sports documentary following college athletes through the NFL Draft process. I'll never forget the scene where players are down in Bradenton getting coaching on their 40-us test by someone by the name of Michael Johnson (you may be familiar with him ?). The bigger question in my mind is not whether they will be able to get premier players to attend, but how this will impact the quality of premier teams in other states. For example, a freshman from Allen High (TX, 20th nationally) just transferred to IMG. Had he stayed at Allen, he would have played in a state-of-the-art stadium, likely won multiple state championships, had the potential to draw attention to scouts, and perfected his game along classmates for as many as 13 years. In my opinion, it's a dangerous precedent and I feel it's a very good thing the NFL instituted the three-year rule long ago. Thanks again. I'll revise and edit the post with the corrected stats.
  20. I'll beging posting the national champs tomorrow. Because they wore five helmets, and because of the detail in the helmets, I will post each helmet separately. Thanks to all for the C&C thus far.
