The Cambridge Blue Jackets began playing varsity football in 1910. The first record of the Blue Jackets I have wearing helmets was in 1930. In 1997 Cambridge paired with Isanti.

Thanks to Barry T. and Michelle T. for information on Cambridge's helmets.

2016 (B)      

The only photos of this helmet (A) I've seen have been black and white photos. So I am not certain these colors are correct on this helmet. It very well could be a black mask, black center stripe and black logo.

In 2016 the Elks wore a special decal (B) commemorating 125 years of varisty football.

Elk River High School opened in 1888. The first record of the Elks fielding a varisty team was 1891.It wasn't until 1921 when they started wearing helmets. A special thanks to the Sherburne County History Center for allowing us look through old year books and photos.

 


(1) Monticello wore a flag decal on there helmet as a tribute in memory of 9/11 for there game on September 11th, 2015.
