“Individual Commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”

Football season is upon us! Every year at this time I smell the fall coming. When I smell the fall coming I know football is here. I played football from nine years old until I was eighteen. I’m not going to rehash those days; in fact, I was not the greatest football player in high school. Quite frankly, I got my ass handed it to me most days. But it was the 70’s and you didn’t quit sports once you began. That’s what football taught me.

“Winners never quit and quitters never win.”

– Vince Lombardi 

Recently, the Memphis Tigers Football team finally did win. They finally had a championship season in 2014. They finally broke into the Top 25 teams in the country. Many of us have been waiting on this all our lives. To see the Tigers victorious is a rare thing. To see them win a championship is like finding a diamond in Arkansas.

We, at Champion, have bled Tiger Blue since before the company begun in 1970. I went to my first game in 1963. Darn, I’m old. And losing gets old. So, we are saluting to all the loyal True Blue Tiger Fans this Saturday with a huge Tiger T-Shirt sale!

You, the fans, deserve it! Gooooooooo Tigers!

Love, Mike Bowen
