FAIRFIELD, Ohio — A Tri-State football team will be first in Ohio to sport special commissioned camouflage jerseys from the Ohio National Guard, according to school district officials.

The Fairfield High School football team will swap red and white for camouflage to honor active and retired service men and women as well as first responders at its game on Aug. 30.

The game will also serve as the team’s first Military and First Responders Appreciation Night at Fairfield Alumni Stadium.

"We are honored to be the first football team in Ohio to wear these jerseys," said Aaron Blankenship, Fairfield's Athletic Director. 

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Military members, veterans and first responders will receive a $5 discount off admission with proof of service.

Fairfield plays Centerville in the team’s first home game.
