Conemaugh Township Wins State Football Helmet Contest | Sports

Conemaugh Township won the Pennsylvania Football History “Best High School Football Helmet in Pennsylvania” tournament on Saturday.

The Indians garnered 57% of the 2,254 total votes in the final to defeat Marple Newtown. There are 563 PIAA teams in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, spread over 12 districts.

The district vote was divided into groups of about three or four helmets.

“This helmet was designed in 2016 by a player on the team, Trenton Troxell,” said Conemaugh Township assistant coach Wayne Adams. “The coaching staff liked the concept, and the Indians of Conemaugh Township got their ‘headdress.’ This is for college only. Our undergrad team is wearing the black helmet without stickers, which makes it easy. sort of progression from junior to high school. This is a very expensive design because most of the feathers have to be placed by hand, not just a large sticker. It seems to have brought good luck, as we won the district championship in 2016 and were the 2018 runner. Up. “

Adams said the decals are affixed annually by Sportsman’s, of Johnstown, and parts of the helmet assembly need to be removed and then put back into place to add the design.
