New England’s pro football team won’t be the only one sporting patriotic uniforms this fall.
The Boston College football team will wear a special alternate uniform Oct. 27 vs. Maryland at Chestnut Hill as part of Under Armour’s participation in the Wounded Warrior Project.
The uniforms feature an American flag theme on the jerseys, helmets, gloves, and cleats. A “core value declaration” such as “honor” or “courage” will be printed on the back of the jerseys instead of player’s names, and the jerseys will be auctioned after the games and the proceeds will go to the WWP.
Boston College is one of two schools chosen to wear the patriotic uniforms. Hawaii will wear Under Armour Freedom Initiative uniforms Nov. 24 vs. UNLV.
Fan gear that follows the style of the uniforms will be available at the games and on Under Armour’s website.
The Wounded Warrior Project provides services for injured US military personnel.
