In the world of sports, there are Tigers of many stripes, including hundreds of high school and intercollegiate athletics programs across the United States and teams around the globe, competing in everything from Australian rules football to rugby to cricket to basketball and beyond.
While there are Tigers in competition everywhere, there is only one place where the phrase “Tiger Up” has been used with a special and unique meaning. At Wittenberg University, those two words paired together have served as a rallying cry to inspire and encourage generations of student-athletes to step up their game, raise their standard of play, and discover what they are truly capable of achieving.
And now, that rallying cry is officially the property of Wittenberg University. Originally coined by Hall of Fame coach and athletics department administrator Dave Maurer in the 1960s, Tiger Up was recently designated with a Federal Trademark Register by Wittenberg University.
