Kevin Turner Tribute 1969-2016

Kevin Turner was the star fullback for the Alabama Crimson Tide and he played in the NFL for the Patriots and Eagles until 1999. In May 2010, Kevin was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease, and after his tireless battle, sadly we lost Kevin on March 24th, 2016. The Kevin Turner Foundation is involved in research that links chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), or repeated brain trauma in athletes, to a higher-than-normal onset of ALS.
