Perhaps one of the most distinguishing characteristics of the Reitz uniform is the simplest. While the silver helmet worn by a Reitz Football player may not be flashy, donning it is a point of pride held dear by those who understand the Reitz Football Tradition.
As stated in “5 Things Everyone Should Know About the Reitz Football Tradition”, the Silver Helmet has grown to symbolize what Reitz Football represents:
Our silver helmet is rather simple and plain and as a coach and former player, I wouldn’t want it any other way! It stands for the CULTURE and TRADITION of Reitz High School. It stands for all of the players who came before us and the foundation they have laid down for us.
Bob Stephenson, Reitz Football Hall of Famer
Every time I put on the silver helmet I would always get a great sense of being part of an honored tradition.
Andy Holder, former coach & all-state player
