The 2013 Johnathan Goddard Memorial Golf Scramble, honoring the former Marshall University football standout, will take place Aug. 30 at Twin Silos Golf Course in Lavalette, the university recently announced.

Goddard, who died in a 2008 motorcycle accident, was a defensive end for Marshall in the early 2000s, according to the university's news release.

The scramble tees off at 1 p.m. Cost to enter is $75 per person or $300 for a team.

The tournament features closest-to-the-pin prizes, longest-drive prizes, a raffle, an auction and a chance to win a car, according to the release.

Proceeds from the golf tournament go to the Johnathan Goddard Endowment Scholarship, given to a student-athlete with a learning disability.

Those interested in sponsorship or wanting to claim a team's spot in the scramble can email tournament officials at herd50scramble@gmail.com.
