If you are a local high school sports fan (like me) and take a scroll through Twitter, more than likely you’ll stumble upon the ongoing football helmet frenzy. Currently, the Kansas Helmet Project page (@kshelmetproject) is holding a 64-team tournament to find the top high school helmet in the state.
Humboldt is the only helmet with local ties, and has received quite a bit of love so far. The black base with the orange paw print advanced through the first round over Maize South, garnering 58% of the vote.
After the first round of votes, Humboldt sat ninth overall with 3,764 votes behind Pratt, Hartford, Hesston, Valley Heights, Colgan, Atchison County, Hays and Wellsville. Round 2 saw Humboldt cruise past Topeka High, placing them against Hutchison in the Region IV semifinals.
