Meet the Spring 2022 Reflection Scholarship Winners!


Uncommon Sports Group is humbled to have the opportunity to provide $20,000 of scholarship funds to thirteen young professionals who desire to work in the sport industry each semester. These scholarships are awarded thanks to our generous sponsor, Helmet Tracker.

Our Spring 2022 Reflection Scholarship required applicants to watch the “Importance of Serving Others” video done by former NFL wide receiver, Anquan Boldin. Applicants were then asked to answer four reflective questions based on the video. We'd like to thank everyone who took the time to apply!
