A month into the job, Seminole football coach Chris Miller decided he needed to make a statement.
A fashion statement.
So Miller redesigned the team’s signature accessory, the helmet. The base still is white, but the “S” logo on the side is gone, replaced by a sleek, orange and green Warhawk.
The helmet is not the only thing that has changed. Miller also purchased Nike uniforms. Seminole will wear forest green jerseys and pants with orange trim for home games.
New coaches often tinker with the uniforms. Last year, first-year Dixie Hollins coach Shannon Brooks redesigned the helmet, with a black matte base and an old-school “D” on both sides.
The Warhawks have had minimal success on the field, and Miller has done his best to try to create more visibility within the community, as well as create excitement among the players. The uniforms were a major part of that.
“I felt like I needed to do something to spruce things up,” Miller said. “And the new uniforms were one of the things I thought needed to be addressed.”
