The Coolest Football Teams You Didn’t Know Existed


There isn’t a whole lot of originality among the big schools when it comes to naming their football teams. It seems like half of the teams are the Tigers, Bulldogs, or the Wildcats. But as you drift down the football totem pole… through FCS, Division 2 and 3 and NAIA… off into other realms…. Junior college, Canada, Arena Football… there are just some absolutely outstanding names out there. Here, in Alphabetical order, are the best of them. You’ll also notice helmets… we included the actual helmets for all of them. Some of them are just as amazing as the Nicknames here. Click any helmet to see more of the coolest historical helmets ever worn in official games.
