Ram Gridiron Club

Coach McCook has called on the Ram Gridiron Club for immediate support!

The impacts of COVID-19 and the subsequent canceling of the fall season and two years of summer camps have created a significant financial shortfall for the Shepherd Ram Football program. The program uses critical fundraised dollars to support needed resources, such as coach stipends, equipment needs, scholarship development, and travel costs. Unfortunately, the loss of funds also directly impacts our Ram student-athletes. The NCAA’s recent eligibility extension allows for an additional year of eligibility, meaning that it is now possible for our talented senior class to have another year in the blue and gold. While that opportunity is great for our student-athletes and the program as a whole, it also creates a gap in available scholarships. The Ram Gridiron Club has been asked to assist with filling that gap, with a goal of $50,000 of funding.

Through your support, we also have an amazing opportunity to bring two former outstanding SU coaches back home. The SU Football program welcomes back coach Jesse Correll, who is returning as Offensive Coordinator after spending the past two seasons at Shippensburg University as an offensive assistant. Also returning to Shepherdstown is Coach Ramal Faunteroy, who is back after spending the past three years at Fairmont State University.  Coach McCook is very excited to have these outstanding coaches walking the sideline, and your valued support will allow them to coach at the highest level and improve our program overall.

There is no doubt that the members of the Ram Gridiron Club are the backbone of support for our football program, its coaches, and ultimately its student-athletes. Thank you for your leadership and continued support of Shepherd University Football. You are a member of the Ram team.
