Jack's Shows Community Spirit from the Sidelines

Published Sept. 27, 2012

It’s football season, and Jack’s team spirit can be seen all over Alabama. Through partnerships with WHNT News 19 and Fox6 WBRC, Jack’s supports local schools statewide every week.

“This year, we’re participating in WHNT’s Thursday Night Lights and Fox6 Sideline,” said Jack’s Director of Marketing Pam Measel.

As part of Thursday Night Lights, Jack’s will participate in each WHNT News 19 Pep Rally of the Week and travel to the following high schools’ home games: Lincoln, Thompson, Spain Park, Wenonah, West Point, Calera, John Carroll, Vincent, Sylacauga, Jackson-Olin and Hoover

“We have a lot of fun at the games,” said Measel. “We bring the dot mascot, pass out coupons and launch t-shirts into the crowd. We are a family company, and football games are a fun way for us to support and interact with the communities we serve.”

Jack’s also sponsors the Fox6 Sideline Pep Rally of the Week, where Jeh Jeh Pruitt reports live from a high school during Good Day Alabama each Friday to get students excited for high school football.
