With the NFL Draft coming up later this week it seemed like a perfect time for a college football piece! In the past Balladeer’s Blog has treated readers to lists of cool-named college sports teams or cool logos for such teams. I even ran a list of the Top 6 D2 College Football Stadiums last year. This new list will examine football helmets for NAIA college teams that all use very creative variations on a common theme.
Location: Sioux City, IA
Comment: They’re called the Defenders, just like the superhero team founded by Dr Strange, the Hulk and the Sub-Mariner. Not to be confused with college football’s ASA Avengers, who share a name with a whole different superhero team.
Location: Springfield, MO
Comment: As if having the infinitely cool team name Crusaders wasn’t enough, Evangel University’s football team also sports this incredibly cool helmet design! No wonder they’re the gridiron pride of Springfield, MO.
Location: Orange City, IA
Comment: Tougher than the Northwestern in Illinois, more pleasant than the Red Raiders who had that awful Mike Leach scandal! These Red Raiders from the NAIA’s Great Plains Athletic Conference are ranked year in and year out!
Location: Ann Arbor, MI
Comment: Meet the REAL reason Ann Arbor is synonymous with college football! I’m just kidding, the Cardinals will be kicking off just their 2nd year of intercollegiate football this fall, but were very impressive in their debut season!
