Founded in 1981 by a group of former University of Alabama football players, with the help of legendary Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant, The 1st & Ten Club of Alabama assists student-athletes in preparing for and transitioning to post-athletic careers. Current membership includes former athletes, alumni, and friends of the University. We serve to guide student-athletes who give so much of themselves to athletic programs at the University of Alabama.
A large part of our efforts are geared toward educating student-athletes prior to their departure from the Capstone. We provide them the opportunity to learn about different career fields, talk with professionals who participate in varied marketplaces and industries, and begin networking long before the beginning of their post-athletic careers.
