"I think we have a clean, sharp uniform our fans are going to like and I know our student-athletes love," he said in a statement. "It’s going to be great to run into Donald W. Reynolds Stadium and on to Broyles Field in them in the fall.”
Coach John L. Smith said the players are excited about the new look.
“Nike has tried to incorporate the old traditions while giving the uniform a modern look.," he said in the statement. "Our student-athletes believe if you look good you play good and hopefully that’s the case."
