JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 27, 2015) – The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics officially unveiled the Buccaneers’ new football uniforms during a special event Monday afternoon inside the Cave area of the D.P. Culp Center.
Players Drake Powell, Austin Herink, Daren Ardis, Nick Sexton, Keanu James and Cole West served as models to display the six variant uniform combinations, which include blue and white jerseys with blue and gold stripes, as well as blue, gold and white pant combinations with stripes.
ETSU Senior Associate Athletic Director//COO Scott Carter said the design of the uniforms serve to not only point to the future of Buccaneer football, but hint to the program’s past.
“Today is a special day for the Buccaneer Family as we share not only the football uniform combinations, but a look at the new marching band uniform,” Carter said. “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. 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.”
The team’s helmet was introduced nearly a year ago, and also serves a historical purpose as it includes gold flecks in the navy blue paint – which harkens back to the program’s traditional gold helmets.
Fans wishing to purchase replica football jerseys can do so at the bookstore located in the Culp Center on the ETSU campus.
