The uniforms are sharp enough themselves, but it’s the helmets that are what’s really special…

There will be a total of seven different hand-painted helmets worn by Midshipmen players, signifying  the seven of the historic ships that make up the U.S. Naval fleet. Each position group will be assigned a specific helmet that will pay tribute to one of the seven ships with a correlating vessel that embodies the respective position.
