The Alumni Lettermen’s Club was founded in 1999. The founders were Mike Bulger ’60, Ray Bulger ‘67 and John Boykin’53.
The Lettermen’s Club focus is on tradition, camaraderie and support of the athletic programs of Jesuit.
The by-laws of the Letterman’s Club were, in part, patterned after the Monogram Club of Notre Dame and the Mustang Club of SMU.
The Lettermen’s Club took the responsibility of managing and promoting the Sports Hall of Fame. Committees were established for the induction process and the annual banquet. The yearly banquet has become a tradition and a first class event.
In addition, scholarship funds have been raised and contributed to scholarships named after coaches and athletes. These funds support students at Jesuit with demonstrated financial need.
Proceeds from the Blue & Gold banquet are also presented annually to the Athletic Department at Jesuit.
In addition to the selection of inductees into the Sports Hall of Fame, the Club selects a Gold Ranger honoree each year. The Gold Ranger must be a letterman who is or has been a member of the Lettermen’s Club and who has brought honor to Jesuit. The Lettermen’s Club also makes annual awards to the Athlete of the Year and the Coach of the year. Periodically a Distinguished Service Award is given to a person or group who has made a significant contribution to the Lettermen’s Club or the Athletic Program at Jesuit.
The Lettermen’s Club Executive board meets three times per year and on an as-needed basis for support of sponsored events. The annual celebration of the Jesuit Sports Hall of Fame is held in May.
