The Boroff Family Football Scholarship Fund

The Boroff Family Football Scholarship Fund

Honoring UNK football coaching great Claire Boroff, this fund provides scholarships for Loper football players.

After a successful college career at UNK, Coach Boroff went on to coach the Lopers and became the school's winningest coach Sept. 19, 1992, with a 26-0 road victory against Moorhead State. During his tenure, UNK posted 19 winning seasons, including seven seasons with eight or more victories. He coached 45 players who earned All-American honors, including 12 first-team players and nine repeat selections. Boroff's athletes also were successful in the classroom with 14 earning Academic All-American status.

His many accomplishments are a matter of record. Less obvious is the positive impact Boroff has had on the lives of hundreds of Kearney State and UNK student-athletes. He holds a special place in the hearts of many.
