BRANDON: The Valley Cubs uniforms hold as much tradition as Alexandria football. The simplicity of the helmet, jersey and pants takes me back to when Alexandria was not only playing football at the state level, but also basketball and baseball. The “USC stripes” have become a commonality amongst high school teams, but no one pulls it off better than Alexandria.
ROBBIE: The rhythm and proportions of color here is well done from head to toe. The repetition of the of the orange pants with the stripe and the orange stripe on the shoulders is a nice contrast.
