Partner with Sportin' the Grades and help us nurture youth success stories that mirror the life of former NFL player, Jerald Sowell. Jerald was a valedictorian from Baker High School outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He chose to play college football at Tulane over West Point. He played 10 successful years in the NFL and holds the record for most special teams tackles (135 for the New York Jets). Jerald Sowell is the model of excellence we intend to instill in youth at the highest levels, both academically and athletically.
