Wounded Warrior Project - version 2.0
By: Ryan Broadwater
Last season Maryland and Under Armour teamed up to support the Wounded Warrior Project. Maryland wore special semi-camouflaged uniforms, cleats, and upgraded helmets when they played Virginia Tech. This year on November 20th, Maryland will play Florida State and will honor current and former service members. Maryland will be outfitted in head-to-toe custom digi-camouflage uniforms and cleats for their game day matchup with FSU. Check out the updated jerseys and cleats the Terps will wear this year. In a press release Under Armour said, “The uniforms were designed in an effort to recognize the sacrifices made by those who have served and those that continue to serve in our nation’s Armed Forces. Each team will replace their last names on their jerseys with a core value embellishment – Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country, or Service.”
Ben Broman over at Testudotimes.com breaks down the differences between last year’s uniform and this year’s one. I agree with him on the fact these new jerseys are pretty good looking and I want the University of Maryland to continue to do this every year. I also hope we break the trend of losing when we change up uniforms. The other great thing about this initiative is you can own an actual game-worn uniform. The custom game day jerseys will be auctioned off on the University of Maryland’s website the following Monday after the game with a 100% of the proceeds going to Wounded Warrior Project.
The WWP is a non-profit organization that provides programs and services for injured service members and their families. The Wounded Warrior Project assists wounded warriors and their families through a holistic approach to their recovery, providing programs and services to aid their physical rehabilitation and improve their mental health and well-being. WWP empowers warriors with essential tools to not just survive their injuries but to thrive and achieve personal and professional success.
