I’m going to push hard this year for everyone to jump on the service academies bandwagons. Every American should be rooting for Army, Navy and the Air Force as long as they’re not playing your No. 1 team.
The Midshipmen just made it easier to hop aboard by unveiling these slick whites to be worn Saturday against Ohio State in Baltimore.
Inspired by the Navy’s summer whites, these will surely lead to a monumental upset as the Buckeyes will be stunned by just how sharp their opponents look.
And the detail. So much attention was paid to detail.
From a helmet directly inspired by the covers that the Mids wear to a gold belt buckle, no detail was left out. Additionally, the Mids will be wearing solid white cleats that represent the all-white dress shoes of the Summer Whites military uniform, as well as all-white gloves.
For the first time, uniforms will slightly vary from player to player, with each athlete wearing their specific rank on the field, depicted in the shoulder board and pant leg design of each uniform.
Freshmen will be wearing uniforms that only have the anchor on the shoulder and pant leg, but no stripes, while sophomores will have one diagonal stripe. Juniors will have two diagonal stripes and seniors will have one parallel stripe. Navy captains Noah Copelandand Parrish Gaines will wear a star and three parallel stripes, the rank of a midshipmen lieutenant.
