School drops cross and greyhound from football team's helmets

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee Catholic high school and a suburban public school no longer have a cross and a greyhound on the helmets for their combined football team.

A parent and a few students in the Shorewood School District complained about the cross and dog logo which went on the helmets this year. So the School Board had the design pulled, and a benign football is now on the helmets which reads, “2012 playoffs.”

The Shorewood and Milwaukee Messmer team will play its first post-season game later this month after going 6-1 so far.

Brother Bob Smith of Messmer said he’d like some image of his school’s Catholic heritage on the football helmets – and but he can see why it’s not possible due to church and state issues.

Students of both schools will have a chance to design a new logo for next season.
