USF unveils new helmets

The USF football team officially revealed its new helmets Friday afternoon. 

The football team’s  Twitter account tweeted “Bulls have some fireworks of their own on 4th of July…new helmets for 2014.” Attached to the tweet was a link to the team’s Instagram account where there was a video displaying current players showing off the new gear. 

The team held a photo-shoot earlier this month to debut the helmets. Players such as Nate Godwin, Mike McFarland and Mike White were featured in the display. The two new USF helmets include one matte green helmet with a gold “U” and the other is a chrome gold helmet with a green “U” outlined in white. 

USF will wear the new helmets for the first time Aug. 30 when the team hosts Western Carolina in the season opener.
