In late-March, the Wake Forest fan base was treated to a sneak peek of a couple of new helmet prototypes rumored to be launched for the 2013-14 season.

Well, on Thursday, the Demon Deacons unveiled some new helmets, but they are not what we expected. All three of the helmets feature the traditional “WF” lettering on them, but with tweaks to the colors and finish to give them a new-school pop.

First, offensive line coach Jonathan Himebauch tweeted out a photo of the old school Wake black with the black jersey:

Now, in the first of the new looks, Himebaugh introduced a matte-black helmet to the Demon Deacons’ repertoire.
