We'll just let the team explain it for you...

The 2014 NAIA champion Southern Oregon University football team is asking for your help. The Raiders are in need of assistance to honor the members of the team and coaching staff by purchasing championship rings.

Unlike the NCAA Division I level – where the championship rings are already paid for – the Raiders have to purchase their own. Each ring costs approximately $250. You can honor a player or position group by donating to the "Ring 'Em Up" campaign. Your gift will help create a lasting memory for our National Champions. Help us commemorate (and decorate) this historic group of SOU student-athletes.

For those of you who don't know...

In mid-December, Southern Oregon knocked off Marian, Indiana- an 8-seed beating the 7-seed- 55-31 to become the fourth team to win a national title in their first appearance for an NAIA football championship.

“I told the boys – we’re going to win a national championship – but they’re going to be men of character, strength and honor,” said Southern Oregon head coach Craig Howard at the time. “They’re all going to have a diploma that will open doors and they’re going to have a national championship ring. They bought into the plan and executed the plan.”

Here's how they won the game
