Illinois is joining a number of other programs in giving out helmet stickers for various positive plays and achievements on the field, but the program has added a separate set of stickers for off-the-field successes. For play on the field, Illini players will receive stickers of the state of Illinois. They can also earn Illinois shield stickers for "doing things right off the field."

This is a pretty cool addition to the normal helmet sticker tradition. Expect other schools that want to drive home academics and good citizenship to copy Illinois here.
