Warrior and Cascade probably hate seeing that title, but we didn’t know what else to call it! Earlier, we posted a video of Houston’s Steven Hartshorn throwing a BTB fake to gain some space for his lefty rip. What we didn’t catch though, was the young man’s helmet. Thankfully, one of our readers did! See for yourself.
That is undoubtedly the shell of a Warrior TII and the chin and facemask of a Cascade Pro7. From what we were told, Steve wanted better vision, but didn’t want to break from the matte helmet, so he kept his TII shell and threw on his Pro7 facemask and chin.
Though we aren’t sure if one of the helmets is to blame for this little guy.
That was taken during the Sam Houston State game. Big thanks to JoeBagz45 for the heads up and to Steve and Coach Rich for getting us set up with some extra pictures of the helmet!
It should be noted that the following text appears on the Warrior TII helmet:
MEETS NOCSAE STANDARD.
WARNING DO NOT USE IF MASK IS BENT, LOOSE OR RUSTING
WARNING: THIS FACEGUARD DOES NOT COMPLY WITH NOCSAE REQUIREMENTS UNLESS IT IS ATTACHED TO A HELMET SPECIFICALLY LISTED BY THE MANUFACTURER AND WHICH BEARS THE NOCSAE LACROSSE LOGO.
So it’s not exactly legal… but it does look really different, and we’re glad JoeBagz45 pointed it out!
