The Texas Tech Red Raiders will have a bit of a different look when they take the field on November 9th against the Kansas State Wildcats as they’ll debut their new, ‘Lone Survivor’ uniform.
The Under Armour inspired threads will feature an overall grey tone on both the jersey and the pants, highlighted by the Raiders’ famed red and black on the shoulders and down the legs.
In addition to the new uniform, the Raiders will debut a new helmet which will be black with red wordage and matching stripes, which are also featured on the shoulder of the jersey.
The uniform is in support of the Lone Survivor Foundation, which was founded by retired Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell. The foundation supports service members and their families.
Per the Foundation’s website:
The intent was to bring the wounded service members into the same type of environment that healed Marcus. A place of solitude and beauty, where there was a close-knit and understanding support system. A place where the service members and their families could heal together as they all worked through the consequences of war. The foundation is dedicated to honoring and remembering American service members by providing unique educational, rehabilitation, recovery, and wellness opportunities to U.S. Armed Forces members and their families.
The foundation’s motto, ‘never quit’, will replace the name plate on the back of each players jersey.
