After a 1-5 start to the season, the Florida Atlantic University Owls have won two straight games and are favored to win their third straight Saturday November 13th when the Owls host Louisiana-Lafayette.

"I am surely delighted that The Mattera Foundation has joined forces with Florida Atlantic University to support its football team, particularly the athletic department. This association is going to go a long way in helping us develop our football program as quickly as we can," said Coach Howard Schnellenberger.


The South Florida Touchdown Club was founded in 1959 by a group of local community leaders with a strong interest in supporting all aspects of football in Dade County, Florida. Long-established relationships exist with our local public and private high schools, the University of Miami, the Miami Dolphins, Florida International University, and Florida Atlantic University.  One of the primary functions of the Club is to assist local high school coaches in their efforts to promote their athletes to colleges and secure scholarships, thus allowing these student athletes to continue their education while playing football at the next level. 

John Mattera founded The Mattera Foundation in Boca Raton, Florida.


The Mission of The Mattera Foundation is to strengthen the community through bringing good people and good causes together to help ensure both the excellent stewardship of donor funds and the wise investment of grants in the communities that we serve. The Mattera Foundation puts the joy back in giving.
