Scholarship Invitational Sponsorship Photo Gallery Contact Us
It all started in 1947 at Florida Field when George Edmondson looked at the silent crowd around him as the Gators were losing to Auburn. He jumped up and got the fans cheering, and even though the Gators lost that day, it began the legend of Mr. 2-Bits. Fifty-eight years later, George and his alter ego Mr. 2-Bits are still going strong. In fact, with the support of the University Athletic Association and partners like the University of Florida Hilton, George has made a commitment to create a legacy to the Gator Spirit in all of us by organizing the Mr. 2-Bits Scholarship Invitational Golf Tournament, which will help create a lasting scholarship source for the UF cheerleading program. So please check out this information and select a sponsorship level that fits you...and of course, GO GATORS!
