The East Tennessee State football program, revived this fall for their first game since shutting down in 2003, busted out their new threads earlier today.
The Buccaneers will have a total of six uniform combinations to choose from stemming from blue and white jerseys to go along with blue, gold, and white options in the pants department.
The uniforms may seem a bit plain at first glance, but they were designed with both the future, and past of the program in mind. The helmet the team is wearing, which was first revealed about a year ago, includes gold flecks in the navy blue paint, a tip of the cap to the program's traditional gold helmets of the past.
“It is a special time to be a Buc and it has been a pleasure to take great care in embracing the past, present and future with these uniforms." ETSU senior associate AD / COO Scott Carter stated in the official release.
"My friend Wink Baker proudly wore a uniform similar to this during his days as our quarterback in the early 1960s. Hopefully our students, fans and alumni will agree that these uniforms capture a classic look in our beautiful blue and gold.”
