1953 Xavier Football Uniforms and Helmet


Recommended Posts

An interesting group of pictures I noticed on the Helmet Hut's website about the 1953 Xavier football team. Their helmet stripe tapers, and they're wearing what appear to be navy blue monochrome uniforms.


Is this the first case of a tapering stripe appearing on a football helmet?

I'm pretty certain that monochrome uniforms were common back then.

The helmet is a thing of beauty and proves to me anyways, that there really isn't that much new or innovative in the world of design. It has pretty much all been done before and recycled in different applications as time and technology moves forward.
