More Than A Jacket

Nov 11, 2013, 5:41 PM EDT

In case you’re not a regular visitor to our website, we just wanted to share this new story and video on last week’s letter jacket ceremony.

Andrew Clark (Emilio Estevez) wore it in The Breakfast Club. Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) rocked one in Friday Night Lights. Finn Hudson (the late Cory Monteith) on Glee.

If you have watched any television show or movie set in high school, there is a good chance the star quarterback sported the look in the hallway, probably with a backpack slung over one shoulder.

In pop culture, varsity jackets are a dime a dozen.

At the University of Notre Dame however, a letter jacket is much more than a warm coat with fancy leather sleeves.

Last week, the Notre Dame Monogram Club had the distinct honor of presenting more than 100 student-athletes and three senior football managers with letter jackets in recognition of earning their first Monogram.
