Imagine you’re a high school football star being courted by some of the best college programs in the country. You’ve visited campuses, you’ve talked to recruiters, you’ve seen their games. What’s left to help sway your decision?
How about an 18-wheeler parked in front of your house wrapped in the colors and logo of one of the famous of all college football teams.
Norte Dame in 2016 dispatched its equipment hauler to park in front of Demetris Robertson’s house in Savannah, Georgia in hopes of swaying his college decision.
While the blue chip wide receiver decided to go to University of California, Notre Dame’s recruiting stunt demonstrates the importance of big trucks to big college football.
The New York Times today carried a lengthy article about the tractor/trailers that normally carry equipment to teams’ away games. It offers looks at trucks from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, University of Alabama and Michigan.
