Former UGA football player, his wife to endow 2 scholarships

Former football player A.J. Green and his wife, Miranda, will endow two scholarships at UGA. The A.J. Green Family Football Scholarship will provide support for a student-athlete on the football team, and the A.J. Green Family Scholarship will support two need-based UGA students, with first preference going to students from Green’s home state of South Carolina. Second preference will be given to similar students from the metro Atlanta area. 

The Greens have stipulated that the recipient of their football scholarship represent UGA “in an outstanding manner in the classroom as an honor student, on the playing field, in the community, and who also demonstrates a commitment to the university and its football program.” All recipients will be chosen by UGA’s Office of Student Financial Aid.

Green earned All-SEC honors in each year he played at UGA (2008-2010). He ranks second in career touchdown catches (23), third in career receptions (166) and receiving yards (2,619), all despite playing just three seasons.
