In this photo taken 20 years after Pacific University began its football program, the team poses at practice. It's not clear whether they removed their helmets for the photo, or just hadn't started wearing them in 1911. While the first helmets in college play were used in 1893, it wasn't till after World War I that many teams started wearing them. You can see that the rest of the padding at this time was minimal compared to what we wear today. Pacific University's 99-year history of football paused after the 1991 season. It was only in 2010 that football returned to the campus. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
