June 28, 2013. Appalachian State University football unveiled new Nike game uniforms during a team meeting at the Appalachian Athletics Center on Thursday, June 27.
Appalachian State’s new uniforms feature five combinations – black jerseys/black pants; white jerseys/white pants; black jerseys/white pants; white jerseys/black pants and an alternate grey jersey with black pants.
The grey alternate jerseys, which will be auctioned to fans following the season, feature Appalachian State’s popular vintage Yosef logo, which will adorn alternate uniforms across Appalachian’s 20 varsity teams for one more year in 2013-14. The grey jerseys also include the football program’s “Always Attack” motto on the back nameplate.
The four traditional black and white uniform combinations will be worn with a black helmet featuring Appalachian’s Block A logo. The grey alternate jersey will be paired with a black helmet featuring the vintage Yosef logo.
The Mountaineers’ new black helmets have a matte finish as opposed to the traditional glossy look and the Block A logo has a black background to complete the slick new design.
Appalachian State will don its new duds for the first time when it opens the 2013 campaign at Montana on Aug. 31. The Mountaineers open the home portion of their slate on Sept. 7 versus North Carolina A&T.
