Meet the USG Fall 2021 Reflection Scholarship Winners


The USG 2021 Fall Reflection Scholarship Winner Announcement

Uncommon Sports Group (USG) is humbled to have the ability to provide $20,000 of scholarship funds to 13 individuals each semester. These scholarships are awarded thanks to our generous sponsor: Texon Athletic Towel & Laundry Supply.


Our Fall 2021 Reflection Scholarship required the watching of the “I am Second” video by Tony Dungy. Applicants were then asked to answer three reflective questions based on the video. The scholarship review committee agree this was one of the most competitive pools of applicants that we've ever had! We'd like to thank everyone who applied!
