OFFICIAL GAME PROGRAM
DECEMBER 28, 2018
While the Valero Alamo Bowl’s primary mission is to bring
a positive economic impact to San Antonio through
the annual college football bowl game, the Valero Alamo
Bowl also expands its community outreach efforts each year.
In 2018, Valero Alamo Bowl scholarship programs will award over
$1 million to local high school and college students.
78 winners representing 68 San Antonio area high
schools sharing over $600,000 in Valero Alamo Bowl
scholarships were recognized at an awards luncheon
on December 13 courtesy of H-E-B. These outstanding
achievers were also given tickets to the Valero Alamo
Bowl courtesy of Frost to allow their families to watch
them be recognized on the fi eld.
In addition, the Valero Alamo Bowl recognized
63 college junior and senior scholarship winners
representing all six of San Antonio’s four-year
universities at the annual Rudy’s Bar-B-Q Pigskin
Preview Luncheon on August 29: University of the
Incarnate Word, Our Lady of the Lake University, St.
Mary’s University, Texas A&M–San Antonio, Trinity University and UTSA.
Since 2001, the Valero Alamo Bowl has distributed over $4.1 million in scholarships to San
Antonio area students. Funds for the scholarships are raised through Valero Alamo Bowl events
during the year and contributions from Shining Star ENERGY and Valero.
Shining Star ENERGY also underwrites the Valero Alamo Bowl Youth Football Clinic, the ninth
installment of this camp provided at no charge, thanks to the generosity of Sondra Grohman
and Shining Star ENERGY.
Over 500 campers stormed the Alamodome’s turf for last year’s clinic on July 20. Coaches
from some of San Antonio’s local universities and high schools were met by an enthusiastic group
of kids ranging from 7 to 14 years old that could not wait to jump into the action. From learning
how to throw passes as quarterback to perfecting proper tackling technique as linebackers,
campers were determined to learn the game and have fun!
