Buzz around town if the more up coming Laurel Bulldogs black uniforms will be a thing of the past and it’s about time.
Laurel’s sports uniforms have been brown and gold, and maroon and white for generations. Red and White took over when then coach Bill Pugh took over the reigns in football.
During the mid nineties black began as a part of the red and white uniforms; Laurel’s high school basketball uniforms, black, alternate with white or red uniforms. The football team I understand this year had a set of black uniforms.
You could also purchase a school jacket in black. A new comer could easily be confused what the school colors really are!
The new policy I understand prohibits black being the dominate color for uniforms and the colors red and white must dominate. Letters can be out lined in black.
Whoever had the courage to finally stand up and make a uniform policy, my hat is off to you.
