Saint apparel hit shelves

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - With Monday night's win, the New Orleans saints are now the NFC South champions. And as of today, championship apparel hit the stores.

Academy Sports and Outdoors received shipments of the New Orleans Saints championship T-shirts Tuesday and fans couldn't wait to buy them.

Saints fans flocked to Academy Tuesday to purchase the championship locker-room tees which are currently available in black, white and gray. No other division apparel besides the shirts is expected to arrive.

But record breaking Drew Brees T-shirts are expected to be delivered soon.

Store director Dewey Duhon says the store will receive more shipments of the New Orleans Saints apparel in the days to come, but so far today t-shirt sales are going as planned.

"It's been good," said Duhon. "We're seeing a lot of excited fans that are coming through the doors. They're shopping our t-shirts. So it's been fun."

Academy is still well stocked with New Orleans championship t-shirts as well as national championship gear for the LSU Tigers.
