As the days get colder and the winter months start to roll in, there’s no doubt that sleeves are getting longer and longer. Popular among many college students, especially at Merrimack, are Spirit Football Jerseys, and they come in many different colors, sporting many different places.
Sold online at www.spiritfootballjersey.com, jerseys can be ordered for just about any place, organization, or event including Greek/Sorority, State Pride, Patriotic, Cities & Popular Destinations, School Related, Sports, and a Bridal Collection. Jerseys are priced anywhere from $49.00 to $56.00 depending on collection, colors, or extra prints. The site even has a design studio for those who want to create their own jerseys as part of a larger order for groups and organizations.
Colleen Quinlan, a student at Merrimack, got her jersey from the bookstore on campus and loves to show it off at school, at home, or whenever she’s out and about. “I definitely recommend it to others! During homecoming a lot of students and parents were giving me compliments on the jersey and asking where they could find it. Yes it’s a little pricey, but you get your money’s worth and you would be paying the same amount of money as if you were going to buy one at Victoria’s Secret.”
Spirit Football Jerseys haven’t been sold at the Merrimack bookstore for very long, but they have been flying off the shelves left and right. Senior Stephen Forster, who works at the bookstore, said that they’ve only been selling them since a little before Homecoming and there hasn’t been a second shipment in yet. There were only three left in the store on October 29th. It looks like Merrimack Spirit Jerseys are going fast, so be sure to get one from the bookstore as soon as possible to show your school spirit.
