As part of a feature on new uniforms, Eastern’s all red look on the red turf of Roos Field will be discussed on “Tackling the Trends”
Eastern Washington University’s new red football uniform – and its impact on the Red Turf of Roos Field -- will be discussed on tonight’s “Tackling the Trends” college football show on the CBS Sports Network.
Hosted by Tracy Wolfson, the show airs at 6 p.m. Pacific time. Eastern’s uniform and helmet will be featured during a discussion of some of the snazziest new uniforms in college football this season.
Eastern will be sporting new Adidas TechFit uniforms at home this season, blending into the red turf of the Inferno like never before. The uniforms feature a 30-percent weight reduction and increased mobility and comfort, allowing players to move more freely and at a faster pace. The uniforms incorporate multiple ventilation zones without seams, and incorporates Adidas's CLIMACOOL moisture management technology.
Along with the new duds, the Eagles will wear gloves featuring EWU's logo surrounded by the state of Washington's outline. To complete the look, Eastern will sport new red and black Adidas CrazyQuick and 5-Star cleats that provide superior traction on the red turf.
Fans of the Eagles can see the new uniforms for the first time at Eastern's home opener versus Western Oregon on Saturday, Sept. 7. EWU was picked second in the Big Sky Preseason Coaches Poll and is ranked fourth in The Sports Network Preseason FCS Poll.
