Ram Gridiron Club

For the past several years, the Ram Gridiron Club has prided itself with being a pillar of support for the football program at Shepherd University. Whether providing monetary support for capital projects, equipment needs, scholarship funds or other avenues for program growth, we have always aspired to be a solid foundation for the coaches and student-athletes who comprise the Ram football team.

Over the past three years, the Ram Gridiron Club has contributed an average of $75,000 annually to assist the program with obtaining success, both on and off the field. This includes a recent $50,000 contribution to the Ram Stadium Turf Fund, which helped cover the cost of the new field turf installed in 2019, a $14,000 contribution toward last year’s Butcher Center Weight Room Renovation project, and a $500 contribution to the Student Relief Fund for COVID-19 supplies.

This year will be unlike any year before it and hopefully unlike any year to come. COVID-19 has introduced a number of challenges for not only Shepherd University as a whole, but the Ram football program as well. The program has seen several challenges arise because of the pandemic, most notably the negative impact on its operating budget, which allows the Rams to compete at a high level.

While we are aware of the personal impact this crisis has had, we make this ask with the awareness of any potential economic hardships within our membership base. With that being said, if you’re financially able, we view it as the responsibility of the Ram Gridiron Club and its members to help bridge the gap in funding, ultimately helping our team reach its overall goals and allowing them to be positive ambassadors for our great university.

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! Please see below for an explanation of membership levels and benefits.

Sincerely,

Lynn Carr & Jim Auxer
