Donor: Jack Youngblood
Stainless Tourneau Swiss Watch
Jack Youngblood was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame after playing with the Los Angeles Rams for 14 seasons as a defensive end. He is regarded as one of the most rugged players of his era.
In 2014, Youngblood opened the Jack Youngblood Center for Neural Enhancement, which attempts to treat the symptoms of traumatic brain injury. Youngblood has stated the bonus with this therapy is that the time invested is minimal while the results are extraordinary.
The Tourneau Stainless Steel 10ATM is a classic watch design with rugged good looks, so it just seems fitting that it would've been owned and worn by a man who played in Super Bowl XIV with a broken leg! As Captain of the LA Rams at the time, that 1980 game still remains one of the greediest, gutsiest performances in NFL history. Watch comes in its original box with signed 2001 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement card.
The Brian LaViolette Foundation was formed by the LaViolette family to honor the memory of their son, Brian, who passed away in a swimming accident in Green Bay, Wisconsin when he was just fifteen years old in 1992. Brian was not only an excellent student, athlete, and musician, but he loved watches, starting his own collection when he was four years of age.
Since 1992, the Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation has presented 1,058 scholarships to deserving college-bound students in Northeastern Wisconsin, the United States, and other parts of the world. The Foundation continues Brian's legacy by helping high school seniors financially to achieve their educational dreams and, at the same time, providing them with encouragement and inspiration.
