Senior Bowl's Third Annual Turkey Bowl

In partnership with Mark Barron, the Senior Bowl will give out 1,000 Thanksgiving meals to local families at the annual Turkey Bowl Classic

MOBILE, Ala. – The Senior Bowl is hosting its third annual Tukey Bowl Classic at South Alabama’s Hancock Whitney Stadium on Sunday, November 20, 2022. The Senior Bowl, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama, Greer’s Markets, Feeding the Gulf Coast, and Mark Barron are coming together with efforts to give out 1,000 Turkeys and sides to families in the Mobile community. Mark Barron is a 2-time National Champion from The University of Alabama, All-American, and 9-year NFL veteran.

The Turkey Bowl Classic consists of games being played by the Senior Bowl’s NFL Flag league winners and youth football teams in Mobile and surrounding areas at Hancock Whitney Stadium from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. CT. Outside of the stadium, along with Senior Bowl staff, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama, Feeding the Gulf Coast, Greer’s Markets, and Mark Barron, Senior Bowl Committee and Ambassador Club members will be assembling and providing Thanksgiving meals to 1,000 families in our community.

“We’re excited about our third annual Turkey Bowl. It’s an event we look forward to each year,” said Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy. “The Thanksgiving holiday is about family, food, and football and the Turkey Bowl celebrates all those things. This event gives our youth park league and CYO players an opportunity to play in the Jags’ stadium. Most importantly, it helps many families have the type of turkey dinner that everyone in our community deserves. We are grateful for our partners – Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama, Greer’s Markets, Feeding the Gulf Coast, and one of Mobile’s greatest all-time players, Mark Barron.”

This is Mark Barron’s sixth consecutive year providing meals to families in our community, knowing that with the help of the Senior Bowl and other Ambassador Club members, this event will continue to grow throughout the years.

“My goal is to help families come together and have a meal over the holidays.” Barron said. “Due to rising costs and inflation, I know the challenges that families are facing. I want to do my part in helping families in our community.”
