Touchdowns for Desire

Hey sports fans and friends of Desire Street!

You might have heard that I came out of retirement to go back into pro football. Well, that is somewhat correct! I rounded up a team of other retired pros and former Gators to play in the new American Flag Football League U.S. Open of Football tournament.

What’s more, my competitive juices really got flowing when several friends pledged to donate to Desire Street a certain dollar amount for every touchdown our team scored during the tournament!

Well, our “Gators United” team made a good run at the tournament, but we were eliminated from the tournament on May 19th.

In total though, we scored 13 touchdowns across the 3 games we played. So if you made a pledge previously, or if you’d just like to show your support for Desire Street, you may use the DONATE TODAY button below. 

All in all, it was a lot of fun, and I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to connect with all the guys who tried out, for my Gators United teammates, and for all the fans who were so supportive. We’re very grateful too for each and every one of you who supported this fun fundraiser! If you have any questions about your pledge, contact Ebonie Sanders at

… And stay tuned … we might just make a run again next year!

God bless and Go Gators United,
