The Michael J. deZonna Scholarship was created in remembrance of a former Arlington Cowboy football coach, Mike deZonna (1952-2010).

Football was Coach deZonna's passion! He encouraged the kids that he coached to excel in sports and in academics. He felt that football taught discipline, focus, trust, and the value of teamwork; qualities that demonstrate excellence of character and are important on and off the field.

The scholarship is awarded annually to a former Arlington Cowboys football player who is a well-rounded individual and demonstrates scholastic merit and excellence of character.

The 2021 Michael J. deZonna Foundation Academic Scholarship Application will be available late spring. For more information, please see:
