On Saturday, October 31, 2015, in accordance with his ongoing efforts to hone in on the importance of education, Marcell Dareus presented a check to the Magic City Classic Scholarship Fund. During the third quarter of the 74th Annual Magic City Classic, the Buffalo Bills’ two-time pro bowler and former University of Alabama national champion, presented a check for $10,000 to former Alabama A&M Quarterback and Birmingham City Councilman, Jay Roberson.

Although Dareus didn’t attend a Historically Black College/University (HBCU), he understands the importance of preserving the heritage of those institutions. The Magic City Classic is an annual football game that takes place between Alabama State University and Alabama A&M University in Birmingham AL, Marcell Dareus’ hometown. This game is the #1 HBCU rivalry game in the country.
