Photo: This new high school helmet combines two popular FBS concepts


 Tobi Kilgore was hired at Karns HS (TN) back in January. His first orders of business were the same as any other newly appointed had coach; hire his staff, meet with players and the parents, etc.

But beyond the obligatory duties that every head coach encounters, Kilgore also needed to provide a spark within his new program. He turned to the craze that numerous NFL, college, and an increasing number of high school programs are using by adding some flash to his new program's helmet.

As you can see below, add some flash is exactly what he did. I really like the way they were able to combine the chrome-like oversized logo with the matte helmet finish. It really pops and, to me, it looks like a great mix between Missouri's oversized logo alternate helmet, and Oregon State's lids they revealed prior to the 2013 season.

The result is an outstanding modern design for a high school program that's sure to create some hype in Karns, TN. I have a good feeling that players are going to love the result.
