UAB football player celebrates on the field.

While the UAB Blazers football team was shattering records in its triumphant comeback season, Blazer Boosters was breaking new ground itself, surpassing $9.5 million in contributions to the UAB Athletics Foundation.

That support translates into scholarships for student-athletes, funding for capital projects and facility improvements, and the enhancement of sport-specific operating budgets—all of which helps student-athletes in every sport receive a world-class education while fostering the growth of UAB Athletics. “The success of Blazer Boosters this year is just another example of the passion Blazer nation has for UAB Athletics and the desire they have for us to continue to grow and succeed on a national stage,” says Director of Athletics Mark Ingram. “We are grateful for each and every donor who helped make 2017 such an exciting year.”
