For those who are college football buffs and/or attended University of Texas Austin in the late ‘60s, Freddie Steinmark might be a familiar name. But for those who aren’t familiar, Freddie Steinmark played football for the Texas Longhorns in 1969 — the year they won their second national championship. My All-American is a movie based on Freddie Steinmark’s life and his inspirational story in the face of adversity.
Starring Finn Wittrock, Aaron Eckhart, Robin Tunney, and Sarah Bolger, My All-American follows the underdog story Freddie Steinmark from his days playing high school football through his freshman season at University of Texas Austin. Although we may be biased as aficionados of great sports movies, our bias does not change the fact that My All-American is a must-see film for anyone who appreciates a compelling story, great acting, and gripping football action that will leave you hanging on to the edge of your seat.
We worked with costume designer Kari Perkins to provide all of the period football uniforms seen in the film. Using the reference photos given to us, we were able to recreate both the high school period football uniforms and college football uniforms with complete precision. We also supplied the coaches’ jackets, sideline vests, and period referee outfits.
For those who are interested in the granular details of styling for late 1960s/early 1970s football, characteristics of the football uniforms are as follows:
- Cotton/Poly Heavyweight Jerseys
- Screenprinted Numbering
- Longer Shoulder Sleeves
- Long-Sleeve Cotton Undershirts
- Bulky Shoulder Pads
- Thick-Banded, Full Facemasks
- Leather Cleats
