Navy football players are going to be looking gooooooooood for their game against Army this year — the school just revealed it’ll be wearing NASA-themed uniforms for the classic rivalry … and they’re awesome!!
The helmets, jerseys, cleats and gloves will feature nods to astronauts — as the school looks to pay homage to the 54 Naval Academy graduates who went on to become space explorers.
One side of the players’ headgear will have a painting of Navy alum Bruce McCandless II, who took the first untethered spacewalk back in 1985. The other side will have NASA’s logo on it with a moon in the background.
The jerseys, meanwhile, will be white and red … with, according to the school, markings that mimic the NASA spacewalk suit.
Players’ shoes will be all white, of course, to symbolize astronaut moon boots.
