On Monday, Texas Tech unveiled new uniforms from Under Armour, to be worn against Kansas State on Nov. 9.
But they're not wild new uniforms! Okay, well, they're not just wild new uniforms -- the custom digs are in support of the Lone Survivor Foundation, an organization founded in 2010 by retired Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell who "heroically survived Operation Red Wings, a mission to gather intelligence on Taliban leadership in Afghanistan."
The LSF was built on Luttrell's "Never Quit" attitude, and serves the mission to "RESTORE, EMPOWER and RENEW HOPE for our wounded service members and their families."
The Red Raiders' "Lone Survivor" uniforms feature specific designs related to the LSF:
- Winged design on the helmet and shoulders, meant to represent Operation Red Wings
- Custom "Never Quit" print for the helmet, shoulders of the jersey and pants
- Number 19 on the helmet and jersey patch, honoring the 19 soldiers who died during Operation Red Wings
The jerseys will be auctioned off following the game, with 100% proceeds supporting LSF.
