SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – A Sioux City high school looking to buy new uniforms is using old ones to help pay the bill.
East High School offered up more than 100 old jerseys Tuesday night.
The outdated gear sold for $10 dollars each, with used helmets going for $30.
Black Raiders Football head coach Brian Webb said despite the condition of some of the gear, it still has special meaning for former players.
“[Some] try to find the number that they want and what color they want, but [it’s] pretty exciting for alumni. They get to have this and keep it in their basement or their wall, and have a helmet if they want one, too. Kind of brings back some of that tradition because there’s a lot of memories in these uniforms.” said Brian Webb, East High football coach.
Webb said sales have been going great so far, and that he cannot say thank you enough for all the support the East High community has given towards the football program.
