Randy Grimes

Guest Speaker


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.

strong advocate for recovery, Randy launched “Pro Athletes in Recovery” to help athletes find addiction treatment and recovery resources. He has partnered with the NFL Player Care Foundation and other organizations to bring further awareness and treatment services to professional athletes and their families. As a result, hundreds of former professional athletes have since been treated, and Randy was recognized in 2018 as a National Goodwill Ambassador. Randy is a contributor on numerous national TV networks and media outlets including ESPN, Fox News, Fox Sports, CNN, MSNBC and SiriusXM Sports. Randy is married to his college sweetheart, Lydia, who is a Certified Family Addiction Coach. We are thrilled that she will be joining him on stage to share her story as well.
