Dear Cougar Football Fan,
Welcome to a new era for WSU Athletics. You are nobody’s underdog anymore. And we are proud to be at the forefront of this culture shift; two big dreamers who are “all in” when it comes to Waving the Flag for the Cougs. Both of us have been successful at previous career stops, and built national reputations based on demanding excellence. And both of us chose to make Pullman our home because we believe in the possibilities for excellence at Washington State University.
A lot has been said and written in the past few weeks about the lack of financial support that has been historically provided by the Cougar fan base. But we don’t believe that the will to support Cougar Athletics doesn’t exist. We are willing to take a stand for our belief in Cougars across the country. Your Athletic Director and Head Football Coach have been to the very top of the profession, and we’re serious about making WSU a national-caliber program. And now that this leadership team is in place, we believe that Cougar fans will believer national-caliber support.
Membership in the Cougar Athletic Fund, our annual scholarship giving program, is the most important way that Cougar supporters can “Wave the Flag” for the department. It is important that you understand that every CAF Member makes a meaningful, lifelong and positive impact on the lives of our student-athletes, and helps position the University to financially and competitively meet its athletic potential. It is not the size of the gift that demonstrate support…it’s the action of joining.
Do not ride the fence, and do not sit on the sidelines. Follow our lead, and let’s go “all in” together. In order to achieve our vision for Cougar Athletics, we are going to have to expand our donor base and have many more Cougars answer the call. It can be done, and we’re confident it will be. We are going to hold our heads high, and be proud to call ourselves Cougars. And we will all feel ownership when the Cougars are raising banners and lifting championship trophies, because we believed that it was possible and ACTED to make it happen.
Win the Day for Crimson and Gray….Go Cougs!
