Georgia Tech to debut white helmets

For the first time, Georgia Tech will wear its white helmets designed by Adidas in the Yellow Jackets’ ACC opener at Pittsburgh.

The team has been practicing in the helmets this week.

“I love ’em,” quarterback TaQuon Marshall said. “They’ve got little gold speckles in them. I think the gold design is pretty cool. I’m excited to wear them.”

Tech will wear the white helmets with white jerseys with blue numbers and white pants. The helmets feature the interlocking “GT” log on the sides and a gold stripe down the center that tapers into a point just above the facemask. It is meant to evoke a yellow jacket stinger.
