History & Tradition: Georgetown Jerseys

Uniform styles through the years

Football uniforms and jersey styles have followed a fairly traditional look at Georgetown through the years.

In the early days of football, teams generally wore one jersey regardless of a home or an away game. By the late 1930's, home and road jerseys were introduced. (Note: The Hoyas appeared to wear gray pants in the 1920's and 1930's; with the poor state of outdoor fields in this era, these could have easily been white pants at some point.)

To date, Georgetown has not introduced an alternate color jersey.

Home: Gray jersey, gray pants
Road: Blue jersey, gray pants

The home (gray) jersey is worn by Bill Downer '35. Photos of the road uniforms of the 1930's are still being sought. It is possible that since Georgetown wore gray at home and most other teams still wore a solid color at home, most or all Georgetown's road games may not have utilized a blue uniform.
