Former NFL player Brodie Croyle recently spoke at the Wednesday Summer Series that took place early last month on August 2nd. The event happened at Pell City Public Library and everything kicked off at noon with the theme of “Build a Better World”. Croyle will likely share stories from his exciting career in the NFL, days of playing ball at the University of Alabama, and also share information about the Big Oak Ranch, a place that his father founded. Croyle has continued his father’s legacy of helping children who were neglected and abandoned and is clearly doing a lot to help his community.
The Rainbow City, Alabama native got a real start playing football during his college years while he attended the University of Alabama. He entered the 2006 NFL Draft where he was selected in the third round by the Kansas City Chiefs, with whom he stayed with for four years before going to the Arizona Cardinals for his final days as a pro player from 2011 to 2012. After leaving the NFL, Croyle has become active at the Big Oak Ranch, a refuge for abused children, that his father started many years ago. He currently puts in many volunteer hours there per month.
Croyle recently visited Pell City Public Library at the start of last month to serve as a guest speaker for this year’s Wednesday Speaker Series program. The theme of his talk was “Build a Better World”. And given that he has been so active volunteering in his retirement it was an easy topic to discuss.
