Bruins Honor a Bruin
PASADENA – Three of UCLA’s brightest stars were on hand Saturday night, Oct. 4, to present a check for $25,000 to the school’s general scholarship fund in recognition of Anthony Barr’s winning of the tenth annual Lott IMPACT Trophy.
Legendary football Coach Terry Donahue, highly decorated basketball icon Ann Meyers-Drysdale and All-American footballer Kermit Alexander, all members of the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation Board of Directors, did the honors and UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero accepted.
The presentation was made during the first half of the Bruins’ Pac-12 game against Utah at the Rose Bowl.
Barr, now a starting linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings after being selected in the first round last April, was also on hand and displayed his Lott IMPACT Trophy.
Donahue’s 151 wins at UCLA is the most ever by any coach in the history of the Pac-12 and his teams won three Rose Bowls. Meyers-Drysdale was the first woman to be named All-American four straight seasons and was the National Player of the Year in 1978. After UCLA, Alexander enjoyed a stellar professional career with three teams and was the recipient of the 1970 Whizzer White NFL Man of the Year award.
The Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation has now donated more than $1 million to various universities and charities throughout the United States.
