Local sportswear company making shirts for Auburn players

Posted by: Melissa McKinney - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - While football fans and players wait for their holiday bowl games, folks like Tammie Perryman are hard at work.

"It's running the Capital One Bowl and we're doing a locker patch on some T-shirts for Alabama," says Perryman.

As an embroiderer at F&E Sportswear for 13 years, she's thankful for busy times like this.

F&E Sportswear in Montgomery landed contracts with Auburn, Alabama, and Arkansas to put bowl game logos on sweatshirts and warm-up suits for players, coaches and family members.

"We've been running thousands and thousands of pieces of goods. It's been real hectic. We've been working late hours trying to get everything out and finished. It's been real hectic around here," adds Perryman.

It takes more than 30,000 stitches combined to complete both the Alabama, and Auburn game logos, and with thousands of pieces of clothing going out it means big bucks for this local company.

"Probably a regular week...65 hours," says F&E Vice President, Richard Patino.

Patino says business is so good he's been able to hire 10 people--many of which are working overtime.

But, it doesn't stop once the games are over. That's when fan T-shirts start rolling off the press.

"As soon as they win, we're here, we got the screens ready and we start printing all night long. For the BCS for Alabama...I think we ran about 36 hours straight," says Patino.

It's extra work Perryman doesn't mind.

"I enjoy what I do. Even when it's hectic."
