The Copper Helmet

The tradition of the Copper Helmet dates back to 1956 when Los Reyes Club donated it as part of the friendly rivalry between Superior and Ray Schools. The first game of the year determines which school keeps the helmet for that year. Stay tuned to find out who will win the Copper Helmet this year!
