Dunedin High School's new football helmets

Dunedin, FL is known for having Scottish roots, and I guess (as the article suggests) the tartan stripe on the helmet serves to honor that history. I love the novelty of the idea, but I'm not a fan of the look.

EDIT: I just remembered their team nickname is the Falcons. They could've made the helmet a little more Falcon-y, IMO.

Well, the "D" on the helmet (and the red/white) are VERY similar to the Detroit Cougars from the 1920's NHL, who changed their name to the Detroit Falcons (but apparently changed the logo at the same time). Grasping at straws?

Pretty cool. Any bagpipes in the school band? These need bagpipes.

Yep! You can hear them from all over. The school uses the Tigers' cap D on baseball, so they carried it over. They did use the Falcons' logo for a while, too.

I love the idea of the helmet, but it wasn't executed right.

Also the picture used was taken by a good friend of mine's dad. Hahah

The tartan stripe should have been moved to either the jersey or pants, with a falcon returning to the helmet. Odd fact about Dunedin High School, a football grad owns a career pro football record with numbers which surpass even the great Jerry Rice. Even more remarkably, this former DHS player accomplished the feat despite playing at only 5'5, 165lbs. Hint: this is also a former Tampa Bay Buccaneer. Any takers?

Pinball Clemons.

I do like that helmet though.

Good answer, if this was Jeopardy, I would give you a cash prize. Final question, Mike Clemons had a noteworthy teammate on that Dunedin Falcon football team who played in the same backfield, and was a number one draft choice. Who was it?

Interesting to note that same Falcon offense had a lineman who went on to play with Dallas and Denver.

The helmet would look twice as good if they'd used a gloss finish instead of matte.

Matte helmets are a poison. They must be stopped.

I disagree.

and that's okay.

I just have yet to see a matte helmet that IMO wouldn't have looked better as a nice, shiny gloss coated helmet instead. It looks extra tacky when the logos and stripes on all these matte helmets are gloss finish themselves.

I dont know about the first round pick one, but the other one is Crawford Ker, I think everyone in the county knows who he is thanks to Winghouse.

In my Trademark Law class, we went over Hooters v. Wing House, about Hooters suing over the dress code of the servers (yes, they did that). My reaction was, "Pinellas County represent!"

Good job on Crawford Ker, I think another offensive lineman on that team played at Florida State. The overall number one draft choice who played with Mike Clemons was Scott Hemond. Hemond was the overall number one draft choice in baseball in 1986 by the Oakland A's.

Wow didnt hear about that lawsuit. Is there even any Hooters around there anymore? I know the one in Palm Harbor has been gone for a while. I go to Winghouse anyways because I went to school with most of the girls who work there.
