Vermont Catamounts (1962-63)

As this blog nears its first anniversary, I should note that the 1970-74 Vermont post is by far the most popular post, which I guess makes Catamount football the Brooklyn Dodgers or Hartford Whalers of New England college football. Time for another trip to Catamount Country!

The big difference between the 1962-63 uniform and the 1964-66 edition is the use of shoulder stripes instead of the "V" on the sleeves. I've never been crazy about uniforms that use three different colors for the helmet, shirt and pants, but this is one of the better examples of that genre.

I love these old-school poses. They're cheesier than a plate of nachos,
but they're also just plain fun and make me want to grab some old AFL football cards.
The top pictures are from 1962, the bottom for '63. All are from the Ariel yearbook.

The Catamounts in action in 1962 (top) and '63 (bottom).
Those Middlebury uniforms -- and that scoreboard -- are quite funky.

Want more uniforms from the ol' 802? Of course you do? 1964-67, 1968-69, 1970-74.
