Marshall Football: Herd Unveils Special Military Bowl Helmet

At practice yesterday, Marshall football coach Doc Holliday unveiled a special helmet that the Thundering Herd will wear to honor America's Armed Forces during Friday's Military Bowl.

The block green decal has been given a patriotic makeover, featuring an American flag design. The center stripe has also been modified to a stars and stripes pattern. Last but certainly not least, the front of the helmet, typically adorned with "Herd", has been replaced by one of the five military branches, the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, or Coast Guard.

We also learned that former Marshall quarterback Byron Leftwich and West Virginia senator Joe Machin will represent the Herd as honorary captains at the Military Bowl.
