Nowadays, alternative uniforms are all the rage in college football. Battles for who has the coolest jersey is sometimes more important than the game!
Why we must admit, we love seeing what teams will do next, Texas Tech just clinched our award for best of the year!
For their game on Nov. 9 to honor slain Navy SEALS, Marcus Luttrell and his Lone Survivor Foundation! Check it out:
Texas Tech unveiled its good-looking “Lone Survivor” football uniforms on Monday, which the team will wear against Kansas State on Nov. 9 to honor slain Navy SEALS, Marcus Luttrell and his Lone Survivor Foundation.
Readers of TheBlaze are likely familiar with Luttrell’s story and the former Navy SEAL’s nonprofit he created after the release of his 2007 book “Lone Survivor.” The book tells Luttrell’s incredible story of survival and provides a sneak peak into the horrors of war during “Operation Redwing” in Afghanistan, where 19 members of Navy SEAL Team 10 were killed.
The helmet features the number “19? in honor of the slain Navy SEALS and wings similar to those found in the Lone Survivor Foundation’s official logo. Further, the words “Never Quit” appear on the sleeves and helmet.
After Tech’s game against Kansas State, the jerseys will reportedly be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to the Lone Survivor Foundation, Yahoo! Sports reports.
