The Maryland game is still three weeks away, but a player's Tweet already has fans talking about the game. Linebacker Nick Clancy tweeted out earlier that Boston College will have a brand new uniform for the October 27 game against the Terrapins.
As you can see above BC will be wearing a patriotic theme. At first this seems a little confusing, but Complex.com explains that Boston College and Hawaii will be wearing these uniforms for a good cause:
Boston College and Hawaii will both hit the field in the patriotic uniforms, developed to raise awareness and support of United States military personal and public safety officers. The uniforms feature distinct, flag-inspired detailing to jersey and pant, with additional accents on custom cleats, gloves, and helmets. Boston College will wear the uniform against the University of Maryland on October 27, with Hawaii sporting the unique kit against UNLV on November 24.
The jerseys will be auctioned after the respective games with 100% of the proceeds going to WWP. With a mission of honoring and empowering injured service members, the Wounded Warrior Project assists in the creation of unique, direct programs for injured soldiers.
True these uniforms are against the classic styles BC normally wears, and these uniforms are in a very Under Armour style, but you have to love the idea of wearing these in support of the school's motto of "men and women for others." Supporting our servicemen and women is such a deserving cause and the Wounded Warrior Project does wonderful things. Hopefully BC fans will throw up some solid money to buy them.
Only thing I wish they could have added would be a tinge of the red bandana for Welles Crowther, but that is just splitting hairs. Honestly, this is such a great idea I hope that Boston College wears these uniforms once a year, maybe during the game closest to the anniversary of September 11. It would be a special moment every year at the Heights for sure and will continue the school's mission of service even in the field of athletics.
