Oregon and Nike have once again raised the bar with their new Pioneer unis honoring the heritage of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, who introduced Oregon to the east in 1805. The uniform showcases a sublimated, tonal pattern of the Oregon Trail traversed by explorers in the Oregon area. Each player's uniform for the Ducks will show a different area of the map, ensuring each player’s uniform features a different pattern.
The helmets will have a silhouette of Lewis and Clark, along with The Duck, wrapping around both sides. The front bumper on the helmet shows the handshake that you see on the Thomas Jefferson Peace Medals that President Jefferson gave Lewis and Clark to handout to anyone they encountered on their travels as a token of peace, friendship, prosperity and trust.
We will see these unis in action on October 10th as the Ducks take on Washington State.
