High School Football Uniforms 2013 (Keep it Interesting)

Recommended Posts

I've been working on the media guide at the local newspaper on the Cobb Co. football teams here in NW Atlanta. A lot of photos with guys in game jerseys up close recently, which has kind of sparked my interest in high school teams uniforms. Sometimes they do a better job of some colleges at keeping a good look...while some become just outright ridiculous.

Here's some good and bad from my county. As far as I know these are the uniforms they will be wearing this year.

Those helmet's gradient is pretty bad

It reminds me of San Diego State's helmets from the early 2000's. Which IMO were sexy.

Anyway, I heard from my friend(who plays football) that my school; Collins Hill(Suwanee, GA) is getting matte green helmets this year. As far as I know, they'll be a dark matte metallic green, which will look great IMO.

How is this even possible?

Beat me to it.

Matte-metallic for Matte-metallic's sake?

no i meant, is it possible to have a finish that is both metallic and matte, they are complete opposites

This was an assumption by me, since we had metallic green helmets in the past. Turns out we are just using flat dark green matte helmets. They look pretty nice IMO.

Matte metallic green and other colors is possible though.

My high school is about to get new unis, our coach won't unveil until fall practice starts. We did get all white helmets for our spring game. They looked terrible with our old unis. we are in blue.

Unfortunately my high school is getting NEW BADASS BLACK UNIFORMS even though we already have a near flawless blue/silver look. So yeah, it's BFBS. I haven't seen the full uniform, but I believe we will be wearing a matte black helmet, blue jersey, and black pants. I've tried talking to most kids about how much of a downgrade this is going to be, but the common response seems to be "uhhh they're black so they're cool as hell". Pretty sure I post these every year, but here's the old ones:

I don't know if the "metallic" helmets were a one hit wonder but you are probably thinking in line when they got new standard gloss finish helmets. As a 2007 graduate from that very school I know I never had metallic anything.

Nearly flawless uniform? I see 3 separate uniform elements there that in no way connected. It's a disjointed mess, those.

Helmet: silver/blue/minimal white

Jersey: Blue/white

Pants: (ignoring the mismatched stripe from the Jersey) gray, blue, BLACK.

I'm thinking the new BFBS uniform you speak of actually might be better, actually.

Flawless was a poor choice of words. I meant as far as color schemes go, (silver/blue/silver) it was pretty darn good. The pants stripe is incredibly out of place, yes. But I don't really see any problem with the jersey and helmet together.

Oh lawdy! SoCobb what happened??? Better question, where did they get the money for those?!?! I call for a GHSA investigation! ;)

Sadly down around me in South GA there's not much to report. To much history and pride down here in the high school teams to change things around. Camden is the only exception to that I suppose but I don't think they're getting new unis this year. All is calm in the SEC of HS football.

If you look at pics from Taylor Heinicke's days there, the helmets are metallic.

Agreed. The pants stripe makes it horrible
