Grand Haven football shows off its new helmet at picture day on Saturday.

GRAND HAVEN — The Grand Haven football team is turning back the clock and returning to their traditional look. The program recently received a generous donation that allowed the program to buy new helmets. With this new opportunity, head coach Joe Nelson took advantage of the chance to go back to the Bucs’ traditional gold helmets.

“I was an alumni player here and I played with a gold helmet,” Nelson said. “I always hear a lot of alumni wanting the gold back. We went blue back around 2009 or 2010, and of course, a lot of people were excited and a lot of people were missing the gold.
