Early Football Equipment

By Brenen Auer

The early football equipment is nothing compared to what we use in today’s game.

In the early years of football they had leather helmets they called “head harnesses.” The leather helmets were designed to protect the ear area. It made communicating extremely difficult. Between 1915 and 1917, the first skull protection helmets were introduced, also the first ear holes and suspension in the helmets causing them not to be placed directly on your head. A couple years later harder leather was added and a more tear-drop shape evolved into the helmets.

Other teammates in the early football years did not like when you put extra padding underneath your jersey. The first shoulder pads were made out of sewn leather.

The first pair of football pants were made out of rough canvas with light padding in the thigh and knee. The pants design never changed. They still only go about knee length with a lace-up fly.
