The 2016-2017 School Year is About to Begin!

We have been quite busy lately gearing up for the 2016-2017 school year.

Chenille Patches

We have so many new patches, which means so many more options for your letterman jacket! The online patch catalog has just been posted, so keep your eyes peeled for something unique and personal to you!

Summer Sizings

It's summertime in Texas. That being said, most people are trying to find ways to cool down, and less focused on a warm jacket. Bring your child for their fitting now, and receive it just in time for cooler weather!

In a League of their Own

Plano Star Courier by Brittany Feagans

With an impressive list of clientele that includes all of the Big 12 schools, Plano-based Maverick Jackets has certainly left its mark as the leading manufacturer of letterman award jackets, blankets and customized athletic apparel.

Growing up in Indiana, founder Don Giddens was a venture capitol investor for eight years at a company that would be the precursor to Maverick Jackets. When the original investors decided to pursue other business endeavors, Giddens bought the company and moved it to Plano.

“I’ve been involved in athletics pretty much my entire life, and it made an impression on me,” said Giddens, who attended St. Edward’s University in Austin on a basketball scholarship. “It was just a very logical choice with the amount of universities in the Texas region and their commitment and interest in athletics. It was a no-brainer that an athletic award company should take advantage of all that school spirit in the Texas region.”

Letter Jacket Tradition at Iowa State

This is a very well done video from our friends at Iowa State Letterwinners Club that gives some insight into the importance and history behind the letter jacket tradition at Iowa State.

Virginia Tech Hosts Inaugural Letter Jacket Ceremony

Maverick Awards is the proud manufacturer and supplier of letter jackets to Virginia Tech University. We would like to congratulate the student athletes who have put in the time and effort to earn their Virginia Tech Varsity Letter Jacket. Their achievements were recognized during an inaugural letter jacket ceremony held in McConnell Auditorium on Feb. 2, 2015.

At a time when many schools are moving away from a traditional letter jacket award ceremony, it is great to see a school like Virginia Tech begin the tradition for their hard-working student athletes. We hope more colleges and universities follow their lead and keep the letter jacket tradition alive!

Michigan State Hall of Fame Ceremony

At the 2014 Hall of Fame ceremony, Michigan State honored members of the Michigan State Hall of Fame with the gift of a letter jacket. The left chest chenille bears the distinction, "Hall of Fame". Our friends at Michigan State were kind enough to send along a "thanks you" card with this photo. It is great to see such an exceptional group of athletes proudly wearing their Maverick Awards letter jackets.

As a manufacturer, we are so focused on making the highest quality awards (along with the delivery and service), that we sometimes forget that our awards are part of something special.
