Arizona State‘s military tribute uniforms will include the names of all Sun Devil coaches and players who have served in the armed forces.
Adidas released the uniforms on Monday and they’ll be worn on Nov. 4 against Colorado. The company said the uniforms were designed in collaboration with the Pat Tillman Foundation. The former ASU and NFL safety was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004.
“Inspired by Tillman’s legacy, the special edition ‘Brotherhood’ uniforms are centered around the tan colors of Army fatigues and accented with the Sun Devils’ iconic maroon and gold colors,” An Adidas release said. “Building off the theme of previous uniforms, adidas designers worked in tandem with ASU to research the typography and sizes of the wordmark and numbers from the Tillman era in order to recreate the look that the 1996-1997 team wore during their Rose Bowl season.”
The shirt Arizona State players will wear underneath their jerseys will have Tillman’s initials and his number.
