Gamecocks Support Troops Against Gators

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 11/14/2009 No comments
Today when my South Carolina Gamecocks host the No. 1 ranked Florida Gators in Columbia, our proud Garnet and Black will be accentuated with camouflage and other special touches to honor military veterans and promote the Wounded Warrior Project.

The black with tan camouflage uniforms, designed by Under Armour, will have a Wounded Warrior logo on them. And instead of players' names, the backs of the jerseys will have words such as courage, loyalty, integrity, and service. The players will also wear camouflage cleats.

The Wounded Warrior Project acts as an advocate for injured service men and women and provides services and programs for them. It's only fitting that USC would support this cause since its campus is only 15 miles from Fort Jackson, the Army's largest training base.

The Maryland Terrapins are also participating in the Wounded Warrior Project and will wear special uniforms today in their game against the Virginia Tech Hokies.

Some jerseys will be auctioned off after the games on the university websites, with all of the money being donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. You can also purchase specially designed T-shirts and polos.
