When you think of flashy college football helmets, those worn by Nevada probably don’t come to mind right away. But after today they just might — check out the new ‘Battle Born’ chrome helmets that were unveiled vs. UNLV: Battle Born Helmets, #EST1874 pic.twitter.com/tHFVJyVz4w — Nevada Wolf Pack (@NevadaWolfPack) October 26, 2013 Check out these lids for @NevadaWolfPack #uniswag pic.twitter.com/gCF7Wfkl5N — Uni Swag (@Uniformswag) October 26, 2013 Here’s some information behind the ‘Battle Born’ idea, via the Wolf Pack Blog: In the midst of the Civil War, Nevada became the 36th state in the union, earning the state motto, “Battle Born.” Ten short years later in 1874, the University of Nevada was founded, becoming the state’s Land Grant institution. Shortly thereafter, in 1896, the University’s athletic program was established. While both our university and the Wolf Pack athletics program have grown dramatically, we’ve never lost sight of our roots here in Nevada. Battle Born is more than a motto – it’s really a mindset here in Northern Nevada that resonates with all of us. There’s an independent and get-it-done type spirit about us that, in turn, leads us to take tremendous pride in our community, University and athletics program. It is that mindset and spirit that inspires people to move here, and stay here after they graduate from the University of Nevada. I think most Nevada fans will love the new lids.
