Schedule For Monday, October 23, 2017

On Monday night, October 23rd, the Macon Touchdown Club will welcome Brodie Croyle, former Alabama quarterback and current Executive Director of Big Oak Ranch, as our feature speaker.

It is “Alabama” night for the Club on October 23 with former Crimson Tide quarterback Brodie Croyle giving his insight on what is happening at the Capstone. Croyle played at Alabama from 2002-2005 starting two games as a freshman and 11 as a sophomore, despite suffering a separated shoulder in the fifth game of the season. In the third game of his junior season he suffered an ACL injury and missed he remainder of the year. Fully recovered as a senior, he started all 12 games leading the Tide to a 10-2 record, including a win over Texas Tech in the Cotton Bowl and a number 8 national ranking. He was the MVP of the Cotton Bowl. Due to his proclivity to injury, he dropped to the third round of the NFL draft and was chosen by the Kansas City Chiefs where he was a part-time starter from 2006 until 2010.

Brodie Croyle is Executive Director of Big Oak Ranch, a Christian home for abused, neglected, orphaned and abandoned children. Big Oak Ranch consists of three ministries: Big Oak Girls’ Ranch in Springville, AL, Big Oak Boys’ Ranch in Gadsden, AL and Westbrook Christian School in Rainbow City, AL. Brodie, his family and the staff at Big Oak are grounded in one purpose – to relieve the suffering of children. Big Oak Ranch has been focused on doing just that since 1974, with nearly 2,000 children calling it home.

Brodie’s calling at Big Oak Ranch is founded in the words of Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
