At Russell Athletic we make high performance apparel for high performance athletes. We’d like to give a shout out to the pro athletes that that help us test, and constantly improve our products. Together We R.
Pierre Garçon is one of the NFL’s premiere wide receivers. He’s big, strong and crazy athletic. Just the kind of guy our mens activewear line was made for. Garçon has been in the league since 2008, during which time he has more than 4,000 receiving yards. Garçon spent the first four years of his pro career with the Indianapolis Colts, before signing with the Washington Redskins in 2012 as a free agent. That’s the same year Garçon joined the Russell Athletic team, too. And we’re proud to have him.
At 5’9” and 215 lbs. Mark Ingram is built like a bulldozer. But he’s also capable of race car-like speed. That combination of power and quickness helped earn him a Heisman Trophy as running back for the University of Alabama in 2011. It’s also why he was the top pick of the New Orleans Saints in 2011 draft. And after what’s shaping up to be a stellar third season in the NFL, Ingram looks to be a popular pick in next fall’s fantasy football draft. We’re just happy he’s already on the Russell Athletic team.
Legend has it that when NFL quarterback Colt McCoy was born, his father (who was coaching football in New Mexico at the time), sprinkled Texas dirt under his wife’s hospital bed so he could say Colt was born over Texas soil. True or not, Colt is definitely considered one of the Lone Star State’s native sons after leading the Longhorns through an undefeated regular season in 2010. Through hard work and dedication Colt has shown himself to be the quintessential team player. That’s why we’re glad he’s on ours.
Pro Golfers Kenny Perry, Lee Williams and Josh Teater
At Russell Athletic we don’t just make workout clothes for men, we also make polos and other sports clothing that are perfect for golf. That’s why we’re excited to have pro golfers, Kenny Perry, Lee Williams and Josh Teater on our team. Josh has been swinging the irons professionally for 11 years, and this is his third year on the PGA tour. He’s been with Russell Athletic since 2012, three years after his first pro victory in the 2009 Utah Championship.
