The Spartan are debuting new uniforms, including a redesigned logo on their blue helmets, white jerseys and bright yellow pants. The Huskies' uniforms look almost identical from last season, except the pants are a little more beige and and far less shiny.
Team captains – who will be named game by game – are Isaiah Stanback, Kenny James, Stanley Daniels and C.J. Wallace.
