THE COOLEST HELMETS IN SCFA COLLEGE FOOTBALL

 Balladeer’s Blog would like to help all of us hang on until the 2012 college football season kicks off. My latest method has been by treating readers to some of the coolest helmets in the divisions of college football covered here.

Today’s installment highlights teams from the SCFA. The Antelope Valley College Marauders (logo at left) would have made the list but, like last week’s ASA College Avengers, their cool logo doesn’t show up well on their football helmets.

 8. SAN DIEGO MESA COLLEGE OLYMPIANS

Location: San Diego ,CA

Conference: Mountain Conference

Comment: Olympians is a timely team name what with the London Olympics going on on this 40th anniversary of Muslim terrorists killing Israeli athletes in the 1972 Olympics. I’m sure the world joins me in mourning that tragic massacre.

7. SAN BERNARDINO VALLEY WOLVERINES 

Location: San Bernardino, CA

Conference: Mountain Conference

Comment: This team uses a very memorable and unique logo instead of the imitation Michigan Wolverines logo a lot of similarly named teams go with.

 6. PASADENA CITY COLLEGE LANCERS

Location: Pasadena, CA

Conference: Southern Conference

Comment: In all the annals of college football heraldry the coat of arms of the Lancers stands out tall and proud, doesn’t it?

 5. LOS ANGELES VALLEY MONARCHS

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Conference: Pacific Conference

Comment: You have got to admit that is one royal helmet to go along with the aristocratic team name the Monarchs.

  4. SANTA ANA COLLEGE DONS

Location: Santa Ana, CA

Conference: East Conference

Comment: That’s Dons as in Old California Dons like Don Diego de la Vega, not as in Mafia Dons like The Godfather’s Don Corleone.

 3. COLLEGE OF THE DESERT ROADRUNNERS

Location: Palm Desert, CA

Conference: East Conference

Comment: The gridiron pride of Palm Desert never bothers anyone … just runnin’ down the road’s their idea of havin’ fun. Henna?

 2. SANTA MONICA COLLEGE CORSAIRS

Location: Santa Monica, CA

Conference: Pacific Conference

Comment: Strap on the skull and crossbones and hoist the main sail! The cool name Corsairs turns even cooler with these butt-kicking helmets!

 1. GOLDEN WEST COLLEGE RUSTLERS

Location: Huntington Beach, CA

Conference: East Conference

Comment: The Rustlers are fresh off last season’s Bowl victory and are looking forward to another great season with possibly an SCFA title in the offing.
