Now that is a Virginia Tech helmet and uniform we can get behind.
NikeBlog.com posted images of the camouflage-inspired helmets and uniforms that the Hokies will wear for their Military Appreciation Day game against Bowling Green on Sept. 22.
The uniforms are a tie-in with a special set of camo hats being sold at the Virginia Tech bookstore, the proceeds from which will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. The camo helmets were first seen last April.
After the “turkey feet” helmets revealed over the weekend left us and Hokies starting quarterback Logan Thomas shaking our heads, this is a great bounce back for Virginia Tech – especially because the school’s Chicago Maroon color fits in so well with camo. The helmets look like something out of Halo.
We look forward to Thomas’ reaction to these, particularly since his jersey is photographed. Grade: A
