Join us for Super Bowl 57 Radio Row of the Sports Philanthropy Podcast as Liffort Hobley from NFL Alumni and Louisiana State University sits down with our host: Roy Kessel to share the work that he is doing in the community.
Liffort Hobley is a former professional American football safety in the National Football League (NFL). Hobley attended Louisiana State University, where he played college football for the LSU Tigers football team. He was drafted in the 3rd round of the 1985 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers and played seven seasons for the St. Louis Cardinals and the Miami Dolphins. He had two touchdowns in his professional career, both on fumble recoveries.
Nearly 20 years later, the former safety has seen the benefits available to players change drastically since he left the NFL in 1993, and has made an effort to take advantage of the resources available to him.
Despite working as a software consultant for over 18 years, Hobley is enrolling in classes at LSU this summer through The Trust’s Scholarship Award Benefit. And as the president of the NFL Alumni chapter in Dallas, Hobley is hoping to encourage his other chapter members to utilize the benefits they’ve earned.
