Buc Football and Friends Foundation is dedicated to
the restoration of the collegiate football program at
ETSU. Our members are former Buc football Players, ETSU
band members, ETSU Alumni, ETSU staff and faculty. Our
members are also football fans from all walks of life.
We are dedicated to the Buccaneer Football
Our mission is to offer financial
support to East Tennessee State University's
football program for scholarships, equipment,
We believe, as does the National Football Foundation
andCollege Hall of Fame, Inc., that collegiate football
develops not only competitive spirit and sportsmanship,
but also such qualities as academic excellence and
leadership. The Greater Tri-Cities Area is a proud,
historic region with an optimistic future. Buc Football
has been an honored part of our heritage. Why should
our regional university not compete in all major sports
with other equivalent universities? The value of the
unity and spirit of college football enhances the total
life experience for all students and alumni.
Buc Football and Friends Foundation is incorporated
and is operated by an elected Board of Directors. We
have announced meetings open to all members.
East Tennessee State University is the
"regional institution of choice." Similar
interests that led to ETSU's new medical school and
pharmacy school now exist to create a competitive
regional sports program. A centrally located and
multipurpose stadium can serve Buc Football as well as
amateur and high school sports, collegiate events, and
civic and professional activities.
The Foundation will initiate scholarship funding for
individuals who are athletic trainers, football
players, cheer leaders and band members.
Local chapters of Buc Football and Friends will be
established in all possible locations in the Greater
Tri-Cities area and throughout the nation. Local
chapters will show the strength of Buc Football and
provide all fans with a means to become actively
involved in the restoration of Buc Football.
By becoming a member of Buc Football and Friends, you
will be part of the crusade to restore Buc Football.
Other ways to help include participating in the annual
golf tournament, donating items to be sold in the
annual auction, volunteering, and recruiting new
