UNC Unveils New Stars & Stripes Lids
On Wednesday, the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, North Carolina unveiled the best stars-and-stripes helmets we’ve seen yet.
Designed for the Tar Heels’ Military Appreciation Day matchup with East Carolina on September 28th, the predominantly all-white lids feature an American flag-inspired, interlocking “NC” on the sides — just like last year’s stars-and-stripes lids — and a very cool, five-stripe pattern down the middle that’s also influenced by the U.S. flag.
If Captain America ever took to the gridiron, this is the helmet he’d wear. Grade: A
