ABOUT 12th MAN KICKOFF TEAM FOUNDATION:
The 12th Man Kickoff Team Foundation was founded in 2007 by former Texas A&M University 12th Man Kickoff players, the majority of whom were coached by Jackie Sherrill. Their mission is to provide scholarships to students attending Texas A&M University in need of not only financial assistance, but also in need of someone to believe in their abilities to thrive and become a success if given the opportunity. Their funds come from the sale of the book “No Experience Required,” written in conjunction with Coach Sherrill and the 12th Man Kickoff Team players, as well as donations.
