Bobby Humphrey will serve as the ALS Event Ambassador.  In keeping with ALS's theme “Changing the Game,” the keynote organization will take the field/stage and invite everyone to join them as they work together to “defeat ALS.”  This year, we are honored to present- Team ALS!- a stellar group of retired professional football players from our state who collectively make the clarion call!

Team ALS-Alabama is comprised of Marty Lyons (Coach), Joe Cribbs (Team Captain, President of the Alabama NFL RPA), Kerry Goode (Team MVP) and a starting line-up of Cornelius Bennett, Jason Campbell, Terry Henley, Trent Richardson, Rich WingoAntonio Langham, Chris GoodeChad Jackson, Chris Wood, Blake Sims and Richard T. Davis.   The event host/sportscaster, Jamie Langley Henderson (Miss Alabama 2007) will give a running commentary throughout the program on the need to increase awareness and support for ALS as a way of “Changing the Game.”  The highlight of the evening will be the honoree awards ceremony in recognition of Bryan Bonds and the Caregivers for a Cure!
