Creating Lifelong Champions

Dale Moss, a former Jackrabbit football and basketball standout, addresses the crowd at the Foundation’s annual Donor Celebration.

Dale Moss was a member of the first Jackrabbit football team to benefit from the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center, a facility funded entirely with private gifts. Moss, a December 2011 economics graduate, played football for one year following a four-year stint as a basketball standout. In April, the Green Bay Packers signed Moss as a free agent.

Also in April, thanks to the generosity of 500-plus supporters, the Jackrabbit Athletic Scholarship Auction raised a record $370,000 to support scholarships for student-athletes. The amount raised is equivalent to 27 full, in-state scholarships.

In addition, the Jackrabbit Club, the annual fundraising  arm of Athletics, is on pace to set a record year in support for scholarships.
