The Gridiron Club is a totally volunteer organization recognized by the University as the football fundraising arm for the program dedicated to support Ram Football. Since its inception in 2003, the Gridiron Club has contributed more than $275,000 in support of the Shepherd University football program.
All funds raised support program enhancements as determined exclusively by head coach Ernie McCook and his coaching staff. Through membership fees, donations and in kind support we are committed to assisting Shepherd in being a premier Division II football program.
Your dues enable the program to purchase supplemental equipment, underwrite improved travel accommodations, finance team dinners and recruiting events as well as assist in scholarship initiatives. Our overarching goal is to enhance the success of this incredible program.
The tradition of leadership and giving that has been demonstrated by alumni, friends and fans of Shepherd University has been one of the many reasons Shepherdstown is such a great place to be on Saturdays during the fall.
All membership dues, donations and gifts are tax deductible.
