Tennessee State University unveils first HBCU hockey jersey

Tennessee State University just unveiled the inaugural jerseys of the first HBCU hockey team in history.

TSU head coach Duante’ Abercrombie unveiled the TSU home jerseys for the 2025–26 season during the Roar City panel at the 67th TSUNAA Convention on campus.

The jersey is primarily blue, with red and white accents that give it a vibrant look. The back of the jersey features the last name and number in bold white letters and numbers with red outlines, making them stand out against the blue background.

The front of the jersey features a fierce, stylized tiger head symbolizing the Tennessee State University Tigers. It is printed in white and outlined in red. This logo is centered on the chest and immediately draws attention. The jersey has traditional hockey laces at the neckline, which underline the authentic hockey look. The sleeves are decorated with red and white stripes, which contributes to the overall aesthetic and balance of the design.

Additionally, the TSU acronym is visible on the sleeves, further highlighting school pride. The jersey combines classic hockey style elements with Tennessee State University’s bold visual identity, making it a unique and eye-catching piece of sportswear that proudly represents the spirit and tradition of TSU.

Abercrombie, a graduate of Hampton University, was named the program’s head coach in April. TSU will be the first HBCU to participate in hockey when it takes to the ice in late 2025. The first commitment has already been made.
