Virginia Tech is once again going to be wearing a digital camouflage design on their helmets for a game this season, which has become a nice trend around college football for some schools in honor of the nation’s military. The Hokies were a military appreciation helmet last season, but this year’s edition is heavy on the orange.
These helmets will be worn for a September 21 game against Marshall. This is interesting because the Hokies have that September 21 game marked on their calendar as a “White Effect” game. It would have seemed like an appropriate opportunity to roll out a white Hokies helmet as the fans will likely be decked out in all white.
I sort of like last year’s military appreciation helmet better than this version, but when it comes to honoring the troops and those who have served it is difficult to find too much fault in any design. Don’t worry though, because I am sure Virginia Tech will serve up something we can poke some fun at for the 2013 season.
