JACKSON MADISON COUNTY
AFRICAN AMERICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
The Jackson Madison County African American Chamber is pleased to welcome back all of our three co-chairs from 2016: Celebrity Co-Chair Derrick Burroughs and Tournament Co-chairs Ted Austin of Jackson Energy Authority, Charley Deal of UT Martin.
We thank them for bringing their individual talents to make the 6th year bigger and better. For example, Athletic Director and Head Football Coach for Lane College, Coach Burroughs brought three other former NFL players -- Howard Ballard, Dorsett Davis and Reggie Howard. All are members of the Lane Coaching staff.
Charley Deal suggested hole signs could be bigger and double-sided and helped make that happen while securing signed autographed helmet and football for the silent auction. Meanwhile, Ted Austin lead meetings, inspired volunteers and brought his winning ways to the entire tournament process. Hats off to our winning and returning team of co-chairs for 2017.
