Helmet Bowl I
In 2017, Helmet Tracker created and sponsored the first National football helmet championship. We started a contest with 76 football conferences and 777 football teams. On January 8th, 2018, we crowned the first national helmet champion, Gallaudet University. It was a fun and exciting contest. There are not too many places you can see a DIII school destroy a famous DI school, every team is on a level playing field.
It's a great come from behind victory and a great story. Trivia – Gallaudet invented the “Huddle“.
Helmet Bowl II
For the second year in a row, Helmet Bowl Championship honors went to a Division III school from the East. In 2017, Gallaudet staged a nearly-unbelievable come-from-behind victory to win Helmet Bowl I. In 2018, Dickinson lead from the start and won every match up with ease, bar one (looking at you Lafayette Leopards!). In the final match up against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane, they jumped out to a strong start, then built on it throughout the week to finally win 76% to 24%.
“While you never know until the last vote is counted, from the beginning we knew the Helmet Bowl competition was ours to win,” said Red Devil football Mom and Helmet Bowl cheerleader Robyn Porter. “The football team, Dickinson, and the parent group came together like a well oiled machine and stuck with a winning strategy to be victorious.”
Robyn, whose son Jack plays receiver for the Red Devils, said the National Championship represents a new, victorious future for Dickinson football.
“Winning this Championship goes to show Dickinson’s Red Devil Football team is a force to be reckoned with–both on and off the field. Not only do we have the best looking helmet in the nation, our team has a very bright future.”
