The Vanderbilt Legends Charity Basketball Game is brainchild of Philadelphia Eagles star and Vandy alum Jordan Matthews. Jordan brought together NFL stars and other university football legends to go head-to-head on the court with with men who serve as role models for ending violence against women and girls in Nashville.
A Vanderbilt Alumni “Legends” team included Jordan and current and former NFL players. The Real Heroes of Nashville team members are police, firefighters, teachers, and community leaders, including Shan Foster, Ron Johnson, Drew Maddux, and more.
