Former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end L.C. Greenwood and his teammates in the NFL Alumni Celebrity Golf Classic are advancing to the SUPER BOWL OF GOLF XXXII following their victory on October 11, 2011 at Hackensack Golf Club. Greenwood was among 18 celebrity players at the Cadillac-sponsored event, and served as captain of Team Sound Air Conditioning at the fundraiser tournament.
Chaired by former pro football coach Bill Parcells, the NFL Alumni Celebrity Golf Classic raised funds for the NFL Alumni Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization supporting youth initiatives nationwide.
“I often support my ex-teammates in their charitable functions because it’s all going to a good cause,” said Greenwood. “This was a great event, and the athletes that were there made it even better. And on top of all that, winning was a big plus!”
Greenwood’s team, consisting of Christopher Grando, Robert Gulmi, Frank Narciso and John Stamm, now moves on to the SUPER BOWL OF GOLF on May 5, 2012, where they’ll compete against the winners of up to 28 NFL Alumni chapter-level golf tournaments from around the country.
Other celebrity golfers at the NFL Alumni Celebrity Golf Classic included Pro Football Hall of Famers Harry Carson, Mike Haynes, Ken Houston and Leroy Kelly; former NFL players O.J. Anderson, Jim Burt, Mark Bavaro, Rich Caster, Dermontti Dawson, Victor Green, Mark Inkrott, Kwamie Lassiter, Adrian Murrell, Tom Nowatzke, Bob Tucker, Steve Thurlow and Perry Williams; and WWE Legend Sgt. Slaughter.
Team Total Quality, led by former New York Giants and St. Louis Cardinals running back O.J. Anderson, came in a close second in the tournament, while Team JTC Painting, captained by former wide receiver and tight end Rich Caster of the New York Jets, Houston Oilers and Washington Redskins, earned third place.
“This event exceeded our expectations,” said NFL Alumni Executive Director and President George Martin at the event’s awards dinner. “I thank all of the NFL Alumni celebrities, along with the irrepressible Sgt. Slaughter, for their participation.”
