EGG President

Welcome to all Alumni, Friends, Family and Fans of Eastern Michigan Football! The E-Gridiron Group was launched as a way to re-engage former EMU Football players with the program. After achieving some fantastic results, the time has come to expand and embrace the entire EMU community, including all EMU alumni, fans, business partners, and more. Together we will build a championship caliber football program at EMU not only on the field, but also in the classroom and in life after graduation for our players.

(L to R): EGG President Brett Petersmark and EMU Athletic Director Dr. Derrick L. Gragg

If you want to be a member of something special, then we want you to be a part of the EGG. Your membership directly supports the EMU Football program by providing Head Coach Ron English with the best resources possible for our team. However, the EGG is about more than just financial support. We are looking for those with a true passion for EMU Football who can give back by sharing the use of their professional skills and creative marketing ideas to help our efforts in reaching out to our supporters. We are also looking for mentors for players on the current team and for supporters to spread the word about joining the E-Gridiron Group online (emueaglesfootball.com). The EGG has been a rallying point in building the foundation of a winning program. Get in the game today and join the EGG! Go Green!

Brett Petersmark, ‘86 President of the E-Gridiron Group

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

Former EMU Football Players

Year three is just about to begin and to say we are excited is an understatement. We have made significant strides in our program. For the first time in program history we have a training table and nutrition supplements for our players. Difference in their bodies as well as their body language is a direct result of our terrific sports performance staff. Our players love to play in front of our fans. The E-Gridiron Group, through its efforts to embrace the entire EMU Football Community, plays a major role in our success. I know that you will enjoy being part of this important group.

Go Green,

Ron English, Head Coach
