"I am extremely excited that Gridiron Celebrity Hoops has reached its 15 th year. There is a great joy in being a first. But this year's anniversary is my opportunity to recognize those who have been so kind to me through the triumphs and trials of keeping this event alive for a decade and a half.

We are very fortunate to have his loyal and dedicated service to the betterment of abused children," expresses Jordan, CEO and President of Jam Sports Productions and Founder of non-profit organization Juli's Kids Motivated to Succeed.
