Mercer played their first official football game in 70 years on August 31, 2013 and won. We watched it from the Presidential Suite funded by our foundation, located in the Homer and Drake Field House. The Zellars’ family ties to Mercer spans three generations. Beverly Gaines '25, Broadus Zellars '29 and Roy Zellars '79. Broadus graduated from Mercer Law School at age 19 and Roy attended his first year of Mercer Law (Walter F. George) in 1980. Additionally, Roy's father, John served on the Mercer Board of Trustees in the 70's. Roy's great-uncle, Beverly Gaines played football for Mercer on the '23 and '24 teams.
