Florida High School Athletic Association Selects Herff Jones as Official Championship Ring Provider

Herff Jones provides state of the art championship rings to celebrate Florida student athletes.

INDIANAPOLIS (June 29, 2023) – Herff Jones, the achievement division of Varsity Brands and a leading provider of graduation products and championship rings, today announced that it will be the official championship ring provider for the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA). This new partnership offers Florida student athletes exclusive, state-of-the-art championship rings from Herff Jones to celebrate hard work and achievement.

The partnership positions Herff Jones as the exclusive provider of championship rings for FHSAA, which sponsors more than 3,500 championship series games in Florida high schools. The contract is effective July 1, 2023, through the end of school year 2026. The partnership between Herff Jones and FHSAA is seamless, as both have a similar mission with student achievement and leadership at the core.

“We are excited to celebrate student athletes in the state of Florida and to partner with an organization that works to build students into champions on and off the field, said John Albrecht, Senior Manager, National Championship Program. “Herff Jones is proud of the artisan championship rings we are able to offer these student athletes and we look forward to creating one-of-a-kind pieces together with the champions.”

According to, the organization crowns 294 individuals as state champions in 32 sports each year. However, participation in these athletic programs affords student athletes much more than the opportunity to wear a ring.

“We are extremely excited about our partnership with Herff Jones, and the opportunity to commemorate our student-athlete achievements through this new endeavor,” said FHSAA Executive Director Craig Damon. “In addition to being our official championship ring partner Herff Jones will also serve as the ring provider of our Hall of Fame inductees in our goal of celebrating the wonderful achievements of our past as well.”
