As the cold weather rolls around each year, students from every high school across the nation wear what is essentially a token of all their high school memories and accomplishments.

The letterman jacket is a representation of the many triumphs students have achieved throughout their four years of high school. Students earn patches for their letterman jackets when they accomplish anything from a varsity sport to outstanding academics.
