Former Pro Bowl wide receiver captains winning team at NFL Alumni Philadelphia Chapter Charity Golf Classic
Former Eagles wide receiver Mike Quick captained a five-man team that won the NFL Alumni Philadelphia Chapter Charity Golf Classic sponsored by Bradford White held Friday, June 24, at Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove, N.J. Quick and his team beat out 26 other fivesomes captained by former NFL players who included Ron Jaworski, Beasley Reece, Gary Jeter, Vince Papale, Joe Pisarcik, Hank Fraley, Harold Carmichael and Barrett Brooks.
The tournament was one of 26 tournaments to be held nationwide as part of the 2011 NFL Alumni Charity Golf Tour. Each stop on the tour features an 18-hole scramble event with five-man teams captained by NFL Alumni members.
Net proceeds from each NFL Alumni tournament are donated to youth-related charities. The Philadelphia Chapter has chosen Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Eagles Youth Partnership, Jaws Youth Fund and Cuddle My Kids to receive proceeds from its 2011 tournament.
By winning the tournament, Quick and his team won an all-expense paid trip to the NFL Alumni's Super Bowl of Golf (SBOG) XXXII, to be held May 5, 2012 in Phoenix, Ariz. His team will compete for the mythic national championship against winning teams from each stop on the 2011 NFL Alumni Charity Golf Tour.
Quick, a first-round draft pick from North Carolina State, played nine NFL seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles (1982-90). A five-time Pro Bowl selection, he led the NFL in receiving yards in 1983 with 1,409 and finished second in 1985 with a total of 1,247.
The NFL Alumni is a non-profit organization composed primarily of former NFL players who have joined to advocate for key issues affecting retired players such as medical, financial and career-transition needs while also supporting youth charities.
