Purple Pride Club
The origin of the Purple Pride Club comes from the Georgia Tech Football Team. At Georgia Tech, it is known as “The Black Watch Club.” Awarded strictly to GT defensive players, members of this club were awarded a black stripe that is worn on their helmet.

Here on the Vineyard, a football player may earn their purple stripe for any of the following reasons:

(1) Top academic performance from the previous school year
(2) Top Bench Press at the team’s Lift-A-Thon
(3) practice or game performance.

The coaching staff votes and awards the Purple Pride Stripe. The Purple Pride Club is looked upon by the members of the football team with great respect. Making the club is difficult. As you look upon this year’s team, know that those players wearing a stripe on their helmets have worked hard to earn them.
