One of the reasons we started Gridiron Alumni is because Christopher and I actually played in a Alumni football game for our old high school back in Redding, CA. We both love the idea of helping schools raise money and changing lives each day.

One of the reasons that I love Alumni football is that it lets me have something to focus on each year that is just about me. I don’t know about you, but with a wife, 2 kids, 2 dogs, and all the bills I can handle, there doesn’t leave much time for ME! Alumni Football is something that I look forward to each year. I love the comradery and the running around. I love getting out there and smelling the fresh cut grass. But most of all, as a middle linebacker, I love taking someone’s head off (in a legal way) and not going to jail for it. I mean, how often as adults are we able to really lay into someone and not have any risk of legal ramifications?

The answer, unless you are a pop star or a super model, is NEVER! Well, except now, of course.

Take a hit! Give a hit! I always say, “It’s better to give than to receive!”
