What is the White Hat Club?

The White Hat Club was born out of a project that provided special commemorative helmets for the Comets football players to wear each year on Farmers Bowl, a celebration that honors the agricultural way of life in the Mayville-Portland and Traill County area.

Members of the club made donations of $500 or more to purchase a helmet for a Comets football player and received a commemorative helmet for himself or herself as well. The program was a huge success and the Comets debuted their new helmets at Farmers Bowl 2019.

Keeping the spirit alive!

The White Hat Club members have made a commitment to supporting Comets Football and work to raise funds that will help the team to grow and succeed. The purpose of the Comet White Hats is to promote and assist in raising funds and help support Mayville State Comet Football with enhancements to the program.

The 2023-2024 Membership Drive is underway!

White Hat membership started at 49 members in 2019-20 and has grown to more than 100 loyal members in 2020-21 and 2021-22 while raising nearly $267,000 for Comet Football. 2022-23 saw the White Hats at 107 members raising more than $76,000 for the program.

Head Coach Rocky Larson and his staff have done a wonderful job of rebuilding Comet Football since they arrived on campus a few years ago, and the White Hats have positively impacted not only the football program, but also Mayville State!

Anonymous donor has committed a $30,000 match!

This year, our generous anonymous donor from the past is pushing the envelope. He's put out the match challenge early and he's upped the ante! $30,000 is out there to be matched dollar-for-dollar with funds from any White Hat who wants to re-up ... or for new White Hats who wish to join! Let's not leave a dollar on the table. Coach Larson and the Comets are literally banking on us!

Your membership in the White Hat Club will help Coach Larson and Comet Football keep moving us forward in a bright future. The membership goal of the White Hat Club is to fill the depth charts with members. If we can fill the roster, we'd top $100,000.
