Kevin was a former University of Maryland special team captain, and needed a solution so he set out to develop a solution to his growing problem so he started a company called Under Armour that was based out of his grandmother’s basement in Georgetown, Washington DC. After extensive research, Plank designed his first HeatGear t-shirt which was named #0037. The shirt was engineered with moisture-wicking performance fibers that will keep you cool and dry in extreme heats or workouts.

In 1997, Under Armour introduced the Cool Gear line to keep you warm and dry on cooler days.…
