Texas A&M to Donate Proceeds from Special 12th Man Towel Sales to South Carolina Relief Efforts in Addition to Hosting Aggies CAN

Texas A&M, Home of the 12th Man, has waved 12th Man towels in support of Aggie athletics since the mid 1980’s. The Texas A&M Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will team with the 12th Man Student Foundation to conduct special sales of 12th Man towels prior to the upcoming home game against South Carolina on Oct. 31. Texas A&M will donate proceeds from the sales of special $5 commemorative towels to the South Carolina Flood Relief efforts.

“We are the new kids in the Southeastern Conference, but one thing that is perfectly clear, the SEC is a family,” Director of Athletics Eric Hyman said. “Just like a family, you love to beat your brother in competitions, but you have his back if ever needed. With the devastating flooding in South Carolina, Texas A&M wanted to help out South Carolina in some way possible and the sale 12th Man towels is a perfect way to assist.”

“Our football team will wear special black uniforms for Halloween, but we encourage our fans to buy white 12th Man towels with a special black ink with both team’s logos, the date, Aggies Helping #SCFloodRelief and the word TOGETHER,” Hyman said. “In place of the letter O in together is the outline of the state of South Carolina.”

The student-athletes at Texas A&M had already designated the South Carolina game as their annual Aggies CAN food drive for the Brazos Valley Food Bank.
