Since 1974, Coach Pat Summitt has led the Lady Vols basketball team to national prominence. While she is well known for her steely demeanor, determination and being the winningest coach in NCAA history, she’s also known for providing leadership and guidance to her players. Her players are more than just athletes to her — they’re family. In August 2011, Pat announced that she was diagnosed with early onset dementia. Despite this diagnosis, Pat will continue to coach the Lady Vols as she always has. It’s time to give back to one of the greatest coaches in the NCAA by sporting this custom We Back Pat tee featuring your team’s colors and logo over “I Wear Purple To Back Pat” lettering on the front and the official Pat Summitt Foundation logo printed on the back with bold purple accents to symbolize Alzheimer’s Awareness. Even though you may “Bleed Orange,” you can show that the Lady Vols care for their own no matter what. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this product will go directly to the Pat Summitt Foundation Fund to provide education about, support of and research for those battling Alzheimer’s disease - now and in the future. The SEC and its member institutions will support the Pat Summitt Foundation Fund’s efforts to increase Alzheimer’s awareness during “We Back Pat” week, January 15-22. For further information about the Pat Summitt Foundation Fund, or to make donations directly to the Foundation Fund, please visit www.patsummitt.org.
