The earliest photo I've found showing a helmet (1) worn by Anoka is 1915. Between 1915 and 1945 they also wore various versions of a brown leather helmet. Anoka opened in 1888. A special thanks to the Anoka County Historical Society for allowing us to view year books and old photos of Anoka High School Football.

Blaine High School opened in 1973.

(1) Blaine switched to a stars and stripes decals to there helmets on September 11th, 2015. They wore the decals for the reminder of the season.

Centennial was called the Chiefs until around 1996, when political correctness forced a name change to the Cougars. Centennial was named because the school was built in the Centennial of the state of Minnesota.

Champlin Park opened in 1992 and fielded it's first varsity football team the same year. The school's name, Champlin Park, comes from the combination of bordering cities Brooklyn Park and Champlin.

During the first three games of the 2005 season Osseo used a small "O" logo (helmet a) and then later switched to a larger "O" logo (seen on helmet b).

For the first two games of the 2017 season Osseo wore an all black helmet. By week three they added the "O" decals.

Osseo High School opened in 1924.

Totino-Grace was original named "Fridley Grace" in it's early years. They fielded their varisty program in 1968 two years after they opened. After Rose Totino donated money to the school, it was changed to Totino-Grace High School. I believe these are all of the helmets that Totino-Grace have used through out their program's history. Thanks to Brian L. and John W. for this information.
