Founded in 1902, the company produced uniforms for a wide range of sports, such as American football, basketball, baseball, softball and volleyball. At the turn of the century in Alabama, cotton was king, but football was a close second. For Benjamin Russell, growing up on Alabama developing a sports clothing brand was a good move.
On March 3, 1902, Russell Athletic was founded by 26-year-old Benjamin Russell as the Russell Manufacturing Company in Alexander City, AL. The tiny factory had 10 sewing machines and 8 knitting machines. Russell Manufacturing Company’s first garment was a women and children’s knit shirt.
In 1926, Founder Ben Russell’s son, Benny, came to his dad with a new idea for an all-cotton practice football jersey replacing the itchy, chafing wool uniforms worn at that time. Knowing the comfort and durability of cotton, the iconic sweatshirt began production in the Russell Athletic mills in 1930.
