Tennessee State Football in the Community


NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State football stepped out into the community to help with The Bridge Ministry. The Big Blue joined in the efforts of feeding the homeless at the Jefferson Street bridge in downtown Nashville.

The Tigers helped unload the food trucks before helping serve meals. The evening continued with music, worship and a guest speaker who spoke about once living under the same bridge for years before finding his way back into a steady lifestyle.

“It is important for our kids to get out into the community,” Head Coach Rod Reed said. “We have helped out at the Jefferson Street bridge a few times and each time it brings an awareness to our players. It is important for us to give back to the community and it is special when we can help out to an important cause.”

The players also had the opportunity to work side-by-side with Tennessee Titans Head Coach Mike Vrabel who was there with his family.
