Ram Gridiron Club

Over the last three years the Gridiron Club has provided unprecedented and invaluable assistance to the Ram Football Program. Through the generous contributions of our members, we have raised over $275,000 in the last three years. However, our fundraising efforts do not begin to compare to those of our elite D2 competitors. Their fundraising dollars and budgets exceed ours by three or four times. Our program does more with less than any top level program. We need your continued and enhanced support to double our efforts.

100% of Gridiron Club donations support Shepherd University Ram football.

Shepherd Football faces a new terrific challenge as Shepherd University joins the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC). Our support is more critical than ever before. Competition in one of the most powerful D2 conferences in the country will require a greater level of commitment from the entire athletic community. Please consider increasing your level of support to help us meet our 2019-20 goal of $100,000. If each of our 200 members were to recruit just one new member, our contributions to football would double, and we would make significant gains on the competition and continue to elevate Shepherd Football.

Over the last three years, the Gridiron Club has supported Rams Football in a variety of ways, all at the request of Coach Ernie McCook and his staff.

  • $15,000 in Uniforms and Equipment.
  • ● $20,000 in Recruiting Initiatives and Support.
  • ● $4,000 for Senior Dinner and Awards.
  • ● $18,000 in Enrichment Opportunities.
  • ● $10,000 annually for 5 years (a total of $50,000 pledged) to the Turf Replacement Fund.
  • ● $15,000 in support for Conference Change Fees.

This is a CALL-TO-ACTION for our current members, alumni, fans and friends to promote and elevate the program by making an upgraded financial level of support and growing our membership!
