The Foundation and the varsity football Tigers made history last year at the 1st Annual Kenny Washington Memorial Game as the first team in the Los Angeles Unified School District to take the field in authentic throwback jerseys. Last year’s orange & black jerseys were modeled after Kenny Washington’s 1935 City Championship senior year as a Tiger.
For the 2012 game we’re going to continue the game tradition and do it again!
At the 2nd Annual Kenny Washington Memorial Game, the Tigers will wear authentic 1962 white away throwback jerseys in honor of “The Game”, a 1962 Los Angeles City Semifinals football battle between the Tigers and the Manual Arts Toilers (who at the time were the #4 ranked team in the nation). In a special ceremony at our game on September 22, 2012 we’ll bring together many of these players from 1962 for a halftime reunion.
A $100 Throwback Jersey Sponsorship will provide a game day jersey for one of the current Tigers AND you will receive a game-ready throwback jersey of your own (with any number of your choosing – limited to two digits). We encourage all sponsors to wear their throwbacks with pride to both the picnic and the 2nd Annual Kenny Washington Memorial Game!
For more information on ordering and personalizing your throwback, please download the form below and return it with payment by August 3, 2012 (an absolute deadline for ordering jerseys for the game). If you have any other questions about this sponsorship, please contact us by phone or e-mail.
