Texas Tech will wear special “Lone Survivor Foundation” uniforms Nov. 9 against Kansas State. These uniforms are designed by Under Armour, in support of the Lone Survivor Foundation, an organization founded in 2010 by retired Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell who “heroically survived Operation Red Wings, a mission to gather intelligence on Taliban leadership in Afghanistan.”

The Red Raiders’ “Lone Survivor” uniforms feature specific designs related to the LSF:

Winged design on the helmet and shoulders, meant to represent Operation Red Wings

Custom “Never Quit” print for the helmet, shoulders of the jersey and pants

Number 19 on the helmet and jersey patch, honoring the 19 soldiers who died during Operation Red Wings

These are nicely done and for a good cause. The uniforms are different enough to be alternates but really sharp looking. After the game the jerseys will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to the LSF.
