GFU releases helmet design, 2014 football schedule

In front of an audience of former and future George Fox University football players Sunday, head coach Chris Casey revealed the final design of the team’s helmets and released the Bruins’ 2014 schedule.

Season tickets will be available for purchase March 31, with the Bruins set to face Arizona Christian at home Sept. 6 in the school’s first gridiron contest in 45 years.

GFU will then host the University of LaVerne Sept. 13 before enjoying byes the following two weeks. by: COURTESY OF GEORGE FOX UNIVERSITY - Bruin blue - GFU recently unveiled the design of its football helmet, which will first see action in September.

The Bruins will begin their Northwest Conference schedule with road games at Willamette Oct. 4 and at Linfield Oct. 11 before hosting Puget Sound for homecoming Oct. 18.

Pacific will visit the Stouffer Family Stadium Oct. 25, with George Fox hitting the road a week later to take on Whitworth Nov. 1.

Casey’s team will close the season with a home contest versus Lewis & Clark on Nov. 8 and a road game against Pacific Lutheran on Nov. 15.

George Fox collaborated with local Newberg company Hydro Graphics Inc. (HGI), on a helmet design that reflects the mission and values Casey set for his team when he joined the university last year, a press release said. The traditional matte blue of the helmet highlights the blue collar instinct of this team to get dirty and do hard work on the field, the release continued.

The inlay of the helmet is made of carbon fiber, a material that is woven together and reflective of Casey’s emphasis on togetherness and teamwork.

“If our team plays as well as this helmet looks,” Casey said, “we’ll be cooking with gas.”
