The San Marcos Academy (SMA) Bears will be literally “in the pink” when they take the field on Friday versus the Rangers of the Austin-Texas School for the Deaf at 7:30 at A+FCU/Ingram Stadium. The SMA Bears will be the first Texas high school football team to wear a special pink uniform as they honor Central Texas Medical Center’s (CTMC’s) efforts to fight breast cancer.

The pink Wilson jerseys have the CTMC logo printed on each shoulder and will be sold to raise funds.

The players were given the first opportunity to purchase their own jerseys. The jerseys not purchased will be sold for $125 on a first-come, first-served basis. The final jersey left will be sold in a national sports auction. Funds raised from the sale of the jerseys will go towards local breast cancer support services at CTMC.

“We are blessed to be a part of this community and are excited about the opportunity to give back through this fund raising effort,” said Ronald Oswalt, SMA’s special assistant for athletic development.

For more information on purchasing a jersey contact Oswalt at (512) 753-8003.

  1. The jerseys look awesome (hope I got in line in time to get one). I love the idea and love that a San Marcos team is the first to do this. Looking forward to a great game!
