A face gaiter made by Baltimore’s very own Route One Apparel.
“I had no idea he was a customer of ours to be honest with you,” she said.
The NFL requires coaches to wear a mask and much to von Paris’s surprise, Coach Harbaugh started wearing Route One’s face coverings weeks ago, first donning their camo design.
“So I’m watching the game just waiting for them to show him and yeah he was wearing our green camo mask!” von Paris said.

“We quickly made some purple-themed masks because I figured if he likes the green he’s probably gonna like the purple even more,” she said.
And he did.
“I just really appreciate that he’s supporting a small business,” she said.
It’s not just the masks- Route One sells mugs, shirts, hats and of course Old Bay hot sauce.
“We can deck you out head to toe in all things Maryland pride!” she said.
With over 300 designs, there is a mask for every Marylander to show their pride and von Paris believes their face coverings might just be a little lucky.MORE NEWS: Testing At Aberdeen Proving Ground Causes Loud Booms In Harford, Baltimore County
