“I’d like to thank John & Alice who have been amongst UGA Athletics’ top supporters for years,” said UGA Executive Associate Athletic Director Ford Williams. “With over $6.6 million donated in their lifetime we are proud to welcome them as founding members of our new Champions and Directors Circles within The Georgia Bulldog Club that recognize transformational donors to UGA Athletics. It is fitting that the Sands name will forever be tied to UGA Football through the naming of the John & Alice Sands Offensive Coordinator position. We are so grateful for donors like the Sands who generously provide our student -athletes and coaches with the resources needed to compete at the highest level.”
