We believe in fostering development and empowering ourselves and others through higher education because it takes as much courage to succeed in the classroom as it does on the field.

Sports Unlimited equips athletes with the most advanced sports gear ranging from the newest football helmet, Riddell SpeedFlex, to basketball hoops for your driveway. We call ourselves unlimited for a reason.

We care about athletes and their families and hope that this scholarship allows a young athlete to succeed not only on the field of play, but in an educational environment as well.
