The football programs of the Army, Navy, and Air Force Academies have so much “cool factor” potential with their uniforms, and it looks like theyre finally taking the next stride with some awesome designs.
Navy will take on heavily favorited Ohio State at MT&T Bank stadium this saturday and will unfortunately wear these uniforms exclusively for just this game.
The Academy reached an sponsorship agreement with Under Armour earlier this year, so the company will outfit all 33 of Navy’s varsity teams. With a big game against the Buckeyes this weekend, Under Armour came up with a new “Summer Whites” uniform for the Midshipmen.
A cool feature about the new uni’s are the unique visual ranking system. Each player;s rank will be on both the shoulder and the pants according to as follows:Freshman: anchor but no stripes Sophomore: anchor with one diagonal stripe Junior: anchor with two diagonal stripes Senior: anchor with one parallel stripe Captain: star and three parallel stripes (h/t Navy, Phil Hecklen)
