ESPN ran this wonderful interactive spread about the evolution of the Florida State helmet. So I decide it to make it a GIF. Enjoy.
Evolution of The Seminoles
Since the start of Florida State’s football program 67 years ago, the Seminoles have sported more than 20 styles of helmets, among the most in the NCAA. They’ve included leather headgear, hand-me-downs from the University of Tampa and a black “warrior” one-off. The tomahawk has appeared on most of them, but the golden, spear-clad design, created by former head coach Bobby Bowden, still endures-it’s going into its 38th straight season.
