12th Annual Family Dinner March 31, 2022
former NFL Center whose successful career spanned ten years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a
2019 inductee into the Baylor University Hall of Fame, Randy Grimes used prescription pills to treat his
career-related injuries. Those pills fed an addiction that would last 20+ years. Upon retiring from the NFL,
Randy fell deeper into his addiction, eventually jeopardizing his family and risking everything. “In football,
I always had a playbook and a team to get me through the day,” states Randy. “Without that structure, I
didn’t know what to do; I lost myself, as my addiction took over.” After losing a former teammate to an
overdose, Randy finally had the courage to raise his hand and ask for help.
