Howard’s Rock replica hat now for sale
You no longer have to earn a spot on Clemson's football team to touch Howard's Rock before the game.
It was 2013 when Clemson student Jack Kulze was watching the Palmetto Bowl with his family. The game was getting tense, and Jack felt he needed to do something to give the Tigers more power. He thought to Clemson's historic pregame tradition, Howard's Rock. He needed to channel the raw energy held in the Rock - the same energy that every true Clemson feels on gameday in Death Valley. Jack began rubbing his cousin’s head like he was about to run down the hill. That’s when an idea flashed into his mind. What if Clemson fans had their own Howard’s Rock to rub during games?
Jack shared his idea with his close friend and roommate, Colin Mitchell, and the two got to work. They used some classic Clemson ingenuity to mold a prototype from clay using pictures of the rock before it was vandalized. Then they found a manufacturer (the same company that makes the Packers' Cheeseheads) and acquired collegiate licensing to ensure that proceeds would benefit Clemson’s football program. Slowly but surely, the Howard’s Rock replica hat was perfected. The hats are made from high-quality foam and are designed to be an almost-exact replica of Howard’s Rock, in color and size, before it was vandalized in 2013.
Jack and Colin are excited to bring this product to Clemson fans everywhere. They will be in front of Subway of downtown Clemson for each home game during this upcoming season. They are also offering high-quality Howard’s Rock replica pedestals.
The replica Howard’s Rock hats are now available from http://rockdeathvalley.com for $29.99. Use discount code TIGERNET15 for an additional 15% off your purchase until 9/05/15, the first day of the season.
