Award Markers: Award markers, also known as reward decals and pride stickers, are decals that are affixed to a high school or college football player’s helmet. They can denote either individual or team accomplishments. The practice of awarding helmet stickers is often credited to Ernie Biggs, trainer at Ohio State University under legendary coach, Woody Hayes. The stickers stem from fighter pilots marking their planes with stickers after kills and/or successful missions. The use of award marker decals is illustrated in the USA Today article, “Helmet stickers reward college football players’ superior performance” and Wired.com article, “The Science Behind College Football Helmet Stickers“.
Name Strips: Name Strip decals can be placed on the front or back of football helmets and are great for covering up helmet names/styles with your own wording. Add a little touch of team spirit with front or back name strips. Great for displaying your school name, mascot name or inspiring words.
Numbers: Number decals can be used to label equipment, helmets, lockers or anything that needs a number.
