TRAGEDY AND TRIUMPH: Former Alabama star Siran Stacy shares his message

Paul “Bear” Bryant retired from coaching before Siran Stacy ever suited up for Geneva High School but the shifty runner with great vision and blazing speed never lost sight of his dream to play college football at the University of Alabama.

The obstacles he overcame to emerge as a star for the Crimson Tide are just one part of a life of professional setbacks and a horrific personal tragedy that set him on a path toward the creation of Siran Stacy Ministries.

On Monday, he will serve as the guest host for the 20th Kevin Turner Prattville YMCA Golf Tournament at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Capitol Hill. For Stacy, Turner’s battle with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) which led to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and his death in March, 2016, hits home for a teammate who had to battle depression following the loss of his wife and four of his five children in an automobile accident in 2007.
