Jermaine Gresham, a former Ardmore High School football standout, has donated $30,000 to the Ardmore High School Football Program for new uniforms for the 2014-2015 season.

 Gresham was a wide receiver for the Tigers from 2003 to 2005. His high school football career was full of highlights and awards. He had 148 career catches and was ranked as the number 34 overall prospect for the 2005 season by Rivals.com.

 As the top rated tight end, Gresham received interest from many top college football programs, including the Oklahoma Sooner's, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Miami Hurricanes, LSU Tigers, USC Trojans, Ohio State Buckeyes and the Nebraska Cornhuskers. He signed a National Letter of Intent with the University of Oklahoma in February 2006. Gresham has been called "the most dynamic tight end at Oklahoma since Keith Jackson" by Frank Cooney of USA Today.

 Gresham was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in Round 1 and was the 21st overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He set franchise records for catches by a rookie tight end. Gresham was named to his second consecutive Pro Bowl in 2012 and joins Mike Ditka and fellow Sooner Keith Jackson as the only tight ends in NFL history to have over 50 receptions in the first three years of their career.
