"Inspired by Tillman’s legacy, the special edition 'Brotherhood' uniforms are centered around the tan colors of Army fatigues and accented with the Sun Devils’ iconic maroon and gold colors," according to adidas.com. "Additional design details include the phrase 'Give ‘em Hell,' a line from the ASU fight song which Pat famously uttered to his teammates prior to beating defending National Champion Nebraska 19-0 in 1996."

The back of the helmet lists the names of active military and veterans from the ASU football program.

The uniforms were designed by adidas in collaboration with the Pat Tillman Foundation and ASU Athletics.
