Why It Matters

TAF Development Officer

“Playing LSU football prepared me for the NFL, life as a dad and the opportunity to give back to today’s student-athletes. Giving to scholarships through TAF is important in ensuring future student-athletes have the same opportunities I have had."

Partner Horizon Financial Group, CEO

“You don’t realize it until you are removed from it a few years, but when I look back at my years as an LSU student-athlete, playing baseball in the College World Series for legendary Coach Skip Bertman, I realize what a unique gift and competitive advantage that was for me in my career and in my life. It was there that he instilled in me the phrase 'If it is to be, it is up to me' which has been my code of personal responsibility since. It’s something priceless that money can’t buy and by supporting the ongoing mission of TAF, my hope is to somehow pay that priceless gift forward to the next generation of Tiger athletes.”
