Better helmet upgrade -- Needham or Beverly?

By Brendan Hall

In our ongoing series looking at some of the new threads for MIAA football teams, tonight we take a look at two nice helmet overhauls.

First there's Needham, which is switching its helmets from navy to gold:

And here is Beverly, which is changing its helmet logo. Last year's black paw print has been replaced with the familiar Panthers logo from center court of their gymnasium:

Beverly is also making minor tweaks to their home jerseys, with "Panthers" added to the chest insignia and the numbers now being stitched on, instead of screened.
