Navy’s football team will be wearing its summer whites in Saturday’s season opener against Ohio State.
The team’s first Under Armour uniform will also feature each midshipman's class rank on the sleeve and leg.
The school unveiled the uniforms Thursday, with white helmets inspired by the Midshipmen’s white covers, plus white gloves and white cleats to match the summer dress staples. Check out some more photos of the uniforms here.
The varying design on the shoulders marks the first time in school history such a feature has been displayed on Navy jerseys, the school said.
Freshman will have only an anchor on their shoulders, with sophomores earning a diagonal stripe, juniors earning two diagonal stripes, seniors featuring a parallel stripe, and the team’s captains earning three stripes and a star.
I am a proponent of all-white everything in sports uniforms, so this is very pleasing to me, and the only thing better would be for them to pull off the upset of the weekend by taking out Ohio State Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium.
Ohio State is, after all, a B1G rival of Maryland, and every bit helps.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
