NOTRE DAME, Indiana -- The No. 3-ranked University of Notre Dame football team recently revealed #33Trucking, a modest trucking company that specializes in long-haul, smash-mouth deliveries by its lead trailer, Heisman Trophy candidate Josh Adams. The company's hat, which was debuted by #33Trucking board members on Oct. 27, will now be available to the general public, with all of the proceeds benefitting current and future Fighting Irish student-athletes.
Proceeds from the hat sales will supplement the Student Assistance Fund, which provides direct benefits to student-athletes and their families. The fund is used to assist student-athletes in meeting a variety of financial needs that arise in conjunction with participation in intercollegiate athletics and enrollment as a student. Preference for distribution of the funds is given to those student-athletes who display a financial need for assistance.
How much do they cost?
The hat costs $26 to purchase.
Where can you Buy?
#33Trucking hats will go on sale at Noon ET Friday from the University of Notre Dame at the following campus locations: Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore, Notre Dame Bookstore at Eddy Street Commons and Notre Dame Stadium Shop. Hats will also be available for purchase online at NDCatalog.com.
Student Body Special Edition
In addition to the #33Trucking hats available for sale on campus, a special edition #33Trucking hat will be distributed to the University's student body as they enter this week's game against Wake Forest.
The Fighting Irish are trucking along to make sure their humble, hard-working and blue-collar Heisman Trophy-worthy running back will be on the radar of voters. A website, Twitter handle and Instagram account have been created to promote Adams for college football's most hallowed individual award through its entire fleet of #33Trucking (11 starters on offense, defense and special teams).
The 33 not only recognizes Adams but it also identifies the 11 players on the field for offense, defense and special teams, whom all play a role in the ultimate success of Notre Dame's lead trailer.
