Terps to wear camo for Virginia Tech game
UPDATED 12:49 P.M. WITH PHOTOS
According to an Associated Press report, Maryland will wear honor those who have served in the military by wearing uniforms featuring camouflage designs for its Nov. 14 game against Virginia Tech at Byrd Stadium.
The move will serve to promote the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides services and programs for injured military men and women.
According to a press release: "The teams will take the field in black and desert camouflage uniforms featuring the Wounded Warrior Project logo. The uniforms will also have a unique twist; a core value embellishment -- Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country, and Service -- will replace the players' last name on the back of each jersey."
The uniforms will be created by Under Armour. "Partnering with an organization such as the Wounded Warrior Project allows Under Armour a unique opportunity to connect with college football fans and our athletes on a whole new level, while also supporting the overall mission of the Wounded Warrior Project -- to build public awareness and help support injured service men and women and their families," said Kevin Plank, founder and CEO of Under Armour. "We will continue to both honor and empower those who have been wounded and we are proud to support our troops."
South Carolina also will wear camouflage uniforms on Nov. 14 for its home game against Florida.
