It's been reported to me that one of these designs either (A) or (B) were worn during the 2002-2004 season.

Edina High School opened in 1949. From 1949 until 1971 they were known as the Edina-Morningide Hornets. A second high school, Edina West High School (Cougars), opened in 1973. The previously known Edina-Morningide High School was renamed Edina East High School (Hornets). However, due to declining enrollment Edina East was closed at the end of the 1980-1981 school year. Edina West became Edina High School. Edina West dropped the name Cougars and went back to Hornets as official nickname again for Edina High School. A special thanks to the Edina Historical Society for sharing photographs and providing yearbooks for missing years.

On the 1983 Hopkins helmet (A) the logo includes a crown. The photo I have from the 1983-1984 yearabook is hard to make out the detail of the logo. A better photo of the helmet or logo is needed.

Hopkins High School opened in 1896. They frist fielded their first football team in the early 1920s. They were first known as the Hopkins Warriors. In 1970 Hopkins added another high school in the district: Dwight D. Eisenhower Senior High School. The original high school was renamed Charles A. Lindbergh Senior High School named for the Minnesota native and famed aviator. In 1982, Hopkins closed Eisenhower High School and renamed the remaining school Hopkins Senior High School.

A special thanks to Dave R. and the Minnteonka High School football program who pointed me to their football website. They have an extensive section on their website to the history and tradition of Minnetonka football. They asked the MHSHP to contribute helmets to their website which related to their section on the history of Minnetonka football. They also have a lot great photographs which I was able to use as reference for creating these helmets.
