I've always wondered about these. They're rewards for what exactly?

for play in the games

the players overall performance is rated by the coaches when they watch film and the players are rewarded with a certain number of stickers based on a formula.

its all levels except professional, some teams opt to use it some teams opt not to.

I'm going with the noles because they don't detract from the helmet and they are different than the helmet logo. I HATE the buckeyes because they have a plain silver helmet and then these "pot" leaves (I know it's not pot) with a white background. The white background on the sticker and lack of a logo make me hate them...plus I hate the team too so that doesn't help.

Back in the 70's the Pirates had "Stargell Stars" on their hats that Stargell gave them for certain reasons. Thats an example of it in other sports.

It made the hat look bad, though.

Unfortunately, with the return of the retro helmets, BYU also returned to the cougar head awards stickers that had been discontinued in 1995. Now, in addition to awarding blue cougar heads for on field achievement as before, they also award gold cougar heads for off field achievement. I never liked the stickers and was glad when the team voted to get rid of them in 95 because the actual cougar head logo is cheap looking and clutters up an otherwise clean helmet.

You see the gold ones on the back of Gabriel's helmet (if you squint really hard):

I'm partial to Ohio State. For as long as I can remember they always fill the left side from the back first and then move to the right side when the left side is full. It looks good unlike some other schools where the reward stickers are put on willy nilly. I believe it is Orlando Pace who holds the record for most buckeyes. His senior year his entire helmet was covered, he got to the point where the buckeyes he was awarded could no longer go on his helmet because there wasn't enough room. This helmet is colleg football to me.

I know Florida State has an exact order to which the equipment managers place the stickers on.

Florida State, definitely. They dont take away from the helmet and actually ADD to the look of it.

Chris Weinke set the tomahawk record with 106 during his Heisman Trophy-winning season in 2000.
