For more than 150 years, SOU has distinguished itself as Oregon’s most recognized regional university. Its athletic programs have been a source of pride and connection for Raiders all over the country. In the past decade, SOU Athletics has become an unparalleled program of dynamic athletic and academic success. At no time in the university’s recent history has there been more enthusiasm and interest in the Raiders. All of our programs have made an impact on the national stage with high-achieving and character-driven student-athletes and coaches.
Gifts to the Stan & Tommie Smith Family endowed scholarship fund will be used exclusively—and in perpetuity—for scholarships for members of the Raider Football Team. Scholarships make it possible for Coach Brown and the rest of the football staff to find student-athletes who will excel in the classroom, win championships on the football field, and become future leaders of our communities.
