Starting this fall, Texas Southern University paraphernalia will be available at local Academy Sports & Outdoors stores in the Houston area.
“This is a major milestone for TSU and our Athletic Department,” said Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics Kevin Granger. “I would like to extend a special thanks to Cameron Bridgewater of Learfield and Academy Sports for their efforts in making this a reality. Now, our alumni and friends of the university will have the ability to purchase our merchandise at their many locations.
