The Navy's football uniform has local ties for this year’s game against the Army. The Navy’s uniform pays tribute to the Battle of Lake Erie and Captain Lawrence’s dying words ‘don't give up the ship.’ Nike designed the uniforms for rival teams for this year’s battle on the field. The uniforms honor each academy's heritage and the famous saying remains a motto for the Navy. The football teams base layer for their uniform will bear the saying 'don’t give up the ship.' The under layer mimics the famous flag Oliver hazard Perry had made by women right here in here.
