Many fans remember Broderick Blue smacking his opponents as he played linebacker, proudly wearing the maroon and silver of the Madison County High School Cowboys. Later, he would sign a scholarship to play football for the University of North Alabama. From there, he would transfer to the University of South Florida and then he would find a home much closer to his hometown when he signed to play with the Valdosta State University Blazers.
Blue was about to begin his second year of playing for VSU when he was killed in a motorcycle accident in Perry.
In order to keep Blue’s memory alive and use his memory to help others, his mother Lesia Blue is establishing the Broderick Blue Scholarship. She is asking that family, friends, churches and organizations contribute to the fund that is designed to help Madison County students attending VSU.
To make a donation, go to the Wells Fargo Bank and ask that the money be placed in the Broderick Blue Scholarship Fund. The account number is 8991874051. The routing number is 063107513.
Checks and money orders can be made payable to the Broderick Blue Scholarship Fund by and mailed to 5639 SW Moseley Hall Road, Greenville, FL 32331.
