About the Gray "W"Dating back to the early 1900s, the prestigious Gray "W" has been awarded to Washington State University athletes who earned a varsity letter. That same Gray "W" has been worn with pride on Cougar lettermen's jackets and sweaters for over 100 years and embodies tradition, pride, and accomplishment. The spirit of the Gray "W" does not end when a WSU student-athlete's playing days are over. For many years, former Washington State University letterwinners have stayed involved with the athletics department by joining the Gray "W" Varsity Club, the official letterwinners association of Washington State University. It is comprised of former student-athletes who understand the importance of being a Cougar and continue to support the proud tradition of Cougar Athletics.
A great deal has changed over the span of Cougar Athletics. Yet, one symbol of excellence, spirit, and pride has lived on through the years. That is a mark of accomplishment; only awarded to an elite group of young Washington State University men and women. That symbol is the prestigious Gray "W", the official letterwinners emblem of WSU Athletics. No matter the sport or the years you were a Cougar student-athlete, what binds the Gray "W" Varsity Club together is elements of a Cougar culture that all WSU student-athletes helped establish and continue to pass from generation to generation.
