Green, who also serves as FAMU’s director of student activities, jumped to action after budget cuts led the FAMU Department of Athletics to suspend the golf program in June. He said he wanted to keep the team alive for the benefit of the student-athletes.
“This is what most of these guys have been doing since they were 8, 9 years old; playing golf,” Green said in a quote published by the Tallahassee Democrat. “They've worked hard to get offered a scholarship. They chose FAMU, obviously because of that ability to compete and get a good education.”
