Uncut is a student-led, athlete-driven platform for athletes to tell their own stories in their own ways. Here, we value each individual athlete as a person, not only as a player, by allowing them to speak candidly about their multifaceted identities, mental health, injuries, personal passions, and more. Through this kind of storytelling, we can support each other, advocate for each other, and cheer for each other — with and without the jersey.
Let athletes explore their identities.
For too long we have stripped athletes down to wins and losses. UNCUT at UVA lets student-athletes embrace themselves fully by sharing the parts of their journey that often go unnoticed.
Let athletes share what's important to them.
From personal interests to campus involvements, unique hobbies to hidden talents, battles with mental health to triumphs through adversity — UNCUT at UVA shares it all.
athletes be themselves.
We celebrate difference by acknowledging that no two student-athletes are the same and by allowing them to express themselves without limits.
Let athletes tell their stories in their own words.

UNCUT at UVA is comprised entirely of students and student-athletes at the University of Virginia. This enables us to produce high-quality, impactful content because our peer-to-peer interactions spark an authenticity that is impossible to replicate.
