Dear fellow Spartans,
As a former player, it is difficult to put into words what the SJSU football program means to me. I was invited as a “walk on” (recruited by Coach Brennan) to the football team in 2007 and earned a scholarship shortly after. If not for this program giving me a chance, I am not sure I would have ever attended college. During my time at SJSU, I made lifelong friends and business relationships that are truly priceless. This is why I feel that it is important to do our part and give back to a program that genuinely does care.
San Jose State Athletics and the Spartan Athletics Fund have launched a Giving Tuesday campaign for an opportunity to give back this holiday season amidst the business of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. As a part of the Giving Tuesday campaign, I will be matching all New Spartan Club membership gifts of $50 or more to the Spartan Athletics Fund, up to $2,500. To make your gift, click here.
If you have not already and would like to join the New Spartan Club for alumni and fans 32 and under, now is the perfect time! You can join by clicking here. Once you've joined and/or made your gift, be on the lookout for an email invitation from the Spartan Athletics Fund to attend the next New Spartan Club event: New Spartan Club Night at the Hardwood Lounge on Wednesday, January 8th as the Men's Basketball team takes on Nevada!
I hope you'll consider joining the New Spartan Club with me, and I look forward to seeing you all on January 8th. Feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions.
Best regards and Go Spartans!
Joe Nigos Jr.
