Friday, August 24, 2012 | 8:30 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Former Missouri football All-American Jeremy Maclin made an impact for the Tigers multiple times during his record-breaking career.

With the advent of the Jeremy Maclin Football Scholarship — announced today — the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver will make an impact for Missouri every season.

 “My time at Mizzou was life-changing,” Maclin said in a press release. “And I want to help provide that same kind of experience for others for years to come.”

The scholarship will be given to a student-athlete who fits one or more of the following requirements: is a Missouri native, attended Kirkwood High School, maintains a grade point average of 3.5 or better, demonstrates exemplary character, actively serves his hometown and/or the community of Columbia and has demonstrated financial hardship.

Maclin lettered in 2007 and 2008, and received consensus All-American honors after both seasons. His 5,609 career all-purpose yards still stands as a school record.
