N.C. State Unveils “Stealth Wolf” Military Appreciation Uniform

Written By:  •  Saturday, June 8, 2019

The North Carolina State football team on Thursday afternoon unveiled camouflaged uniforms that will be worn during its nationally televised game against Syracuse on Oct. 10.

The Wolfpack used the 75th anniversary of D-Day — the Normandy landings that laid the foundation for an Allied victory in World War II — as the date to announce the “Stealth Wolf” uniforms because the upcoming tilt with the Orange will double as Military Appreciation Day.

The all-white uniform includes a sublimated camouflage pattern throughout, as well as black shoulder stripes and black numbers with reflective silver outlines, while the white helmet features a black face mask and oversized Tuffy logo.

This marks the third-straight home game against Syracuse in which N.C. State has worn an alternate uniform to celebrate Military Appreciation Day. The Wolfpack donned their “Iron Wolf” threads — which featured a gray and black camouflage helmet, gray jersey and gray pants — for the last two meetings.

“I always look forward to wearing our camo uniforms to show our respect back to the military and appreciate what they do for us so much,” head coach Dave Doeren said prior to his team’s 33-25 win over the Orange in 2017. “Being in a state like we’re in, North Carolina has such a military presence. It’s a special atmosphere having all of them be a part of it with us so thank them and look forward to playing for them.”

Kickoff between N.C. State and Syracuse on Oct. 10 is set for 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.
