Leonard George & Willie Jackson Sr. Scholarship Endowment
A dedicated group of former Gator football players came together and created The Leonard George and Willie Jackson Sr. Scholarship Endowment. The scholarship endowment will provide funding for football scholarships in perpetuity and continue the legacy of George and Jackson, Sr., for generations. The endowed football scholarship reached a milestone of $50,000 in 2021.
Jimmy DuBose, Melvin Flournoy, John Williams and Wayne Fields were the original group to come up with the idea and continue to push the success of the endowed scholarship. The goal is to raise $250,000, with the $50,000 marking the first significant milestone.
