Founded in 1947, the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame is dedicated to mobilizing the constructive forces of amateur football, at all levels, for the benefit of society as a whole.
As stated most clearly by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a Foundation Gold Medal recipient:
"In football, in business, in the trades and professions, the normal urge to excel provides one of the most hopeful assurances that our kind of society will continue to advance and prosper. Morale ... the win to win, the fighting heart ... are the honored hallmarks of the football coach and player. This morale, this will, this heart...we need not only in athletics teams as individuals, but collectively."
To preserve and encourage these values in our nation's youth, The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame helps to bring together all of the organized groups that play, coach, administer, support and report amateur football. It seeks to establish the true concept of the game as an amateur sport, and to gain recognition of the role it plays in the preservation and advancement of our way of life.
The Foundation's Joe Yukica-New Hampshire Chapter was founded in 1987. Today, it has over 150 members and is one of more than 100 chapters (with over 10,000 members) across the United States. Its mission is to bring the overall national mission close to home: to promote amateur football in the State of New Hampshire.
The cornerstone of the Joe Yukica Chapter's activities is its annual program to honor outstanding high school scholar-athletes in New Hampshire. Recognition of young men who excel on the playing field, in the classroom, and in their communities dramatizes the mission of the New Hampshire Chapter. The Scholar/Athlete Awards Banquet is held in May at the Executive Court banquet facility in Manchester.
