Saturday’s new helmet design harkens back to 1978
Hillsdale College will once again wear its new white helmets on Saturday against Findlay. They’ll be sporting a new design as well. With a throwback to the 1978 season, script “Chargers” will return for the first time in 39 years. Hillsdale’s white helmets had previously featured the college coat of arms on one side and player numbers on the other.
In addition to the new helmet design, look for Hillsdale to sport new dark gray uniforms with white numbers outlined in royal blue.
Hillsdale used a script Chargers design for just one season in 1978. The Ford Mustang, also used by Southern Methodist would replace it in 1980.
