Veterans and Family Student Association

History of the Spring Game


The idea of recognizing service members and student veterans started in 2009 by Head Coach Chip Kelly and Director of Football Operations Jeff Hawkins on a trip back from attending a service members funeral.  The 2010 Spring Game recognized the Armed Forces and was also televised by ESPN.

After seeing the the need to recognize the sacrifice of service members and student veterans, the gift exchange was established.  VFSA is awarded five spots to recognize it's members.  VFSA further selects five members that fully exemplify excellent qualities and helps advance the cause of VFSA.
