NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-The season has not yet begun, but the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's football team has already received national recognition.

The Corsair helmet has been featured as one of the top 20 Division III helmets in the nation by Ed Wozniak on the Balladeer's Blog. The feature is entitled "The 20 Coolest Football Helmets in NCAA Division 3." UMass Dartmouth is ranked 15th on the list. The full piece is available at

"I was very excited, it's nice to be recognized on a national basis," said UMass Dartmouth Head Football Coach Mark Robichaud. "I know that a lot of work was put into that logo by Jim Mullins and our athletic director, Ian Day, as well as Rachel Cocroft of the publications office and a lot of other people across campus. We love that logo, and we put it on everything that we can. It's nice that other people have seen that it is unique."

The Corsairs will begin their 2010 season at home against Fitchburg State Saturday, September 4th at Cressy Field at 12 noon.
