New helmets for Somerville, Winthrop, H-W, Newton South

By Brendan Hall

In today's edition of our ongoing series looking at uniform upgrades for squads across Massachusetts, today we look at a quartet of helmet upgrades for Eastern Mass. schools.

Be sure to tweet us your team's new uniforms at @BHallESPN, @ESPNScottB, or @ESPNBostonHS, or you can use the hashtag #UniWatch2013

First we take a look at Winthrop, which did a nice job on its decal incorporating its school logo into the iconic interlocking "WV" logo of the University of West Virginia:

Somerville, which traditionally has gone with white helmets resembling New England Patriots throwbacks, appears to be making a dramatic change for 2013:
