Each position group is represented by a different ship and will wear helmets with that ship painted on them.Here are all of the helmets and the description of why each ship represents that position group, from the Navy release.Linebacker: Cruiser -- Provides anti-air defense and packs the biggest punch of Naval surface ships representative of the linebackers on the Navy football team.


Defensive Back: Destroyer -- Known for significant fire power, speed, and anti-missile defense as are Navy's defensive backs.


Quarterback: Aircraft Carrier -- The QB of the Naval Fleet, the aircraft carrier is the ultimate decision maker; the “quick strike” weapon of the Naval fleet.


Lineman: Amphibious Assault Ships -- Just as a lineman's job is the create a hole for a running back or linebacker, these ships are utilized to establish the “beach head” that enables the invading force to gain access and ultimately accomplish their objective.
