ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WUSA9) — If you watch the Army-Navy game this year, you might get distracted by all the different helmets on the field.
The Navy Football team will suit up with seven different helmets when they face off against Army in December. The helmets correspond with the position of the player wearing it.Beyond the helmets, the new uniforms also feature gloves saying “damn the torpedoes”, a reference to Admiral David Farragut’s victory at the Battle of Mobile Bay in 1864. The quote can also be found on other parts of the jersey.
