Key Pieces: The standout item from adidas’s The Waterboy collection is a Bobby Boucher Mud Dogs replica jersey retailing for $120.
Editor’s Notes: Back in 1998, Bobby Boucher led the (fictional) SCLSU (South Central Louisiana State University) Mud Dogs to a come-from-behind victory in the Bourbon Bowl. In celebration of the occasion — more specifically the 20th anniversary of the Adam Sandler-starring The Waterboy — adidas Football presents the limited edition SCLSU capsule collection.
adidas has partnered with Disney to pay tribute to the iconic sports film, with a drop that is highlighted by a Bobby Boucher Mud Dogs replica jersey ($120). The top mimics the uniform worn in the movie, showcasing the classic SCLSU home colorway. Boucher’s name and number 9 are both featured on the back, while the Bourbon Bowl Championship patch can be seen on the upper left chest.
Alongside the jersey, adidas presents Coach Klein’s varsity jacket ($100), an SCLSU hat ($30), and SCLSU water bottles ($20).
The Waterboy capsule arrives at a special event at Sneaker Politics in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on October 18, followed by availability on adidas.com October 19.
