After a horrific car accident in 2006, during the fall of his senior year in high school when he was fast becoming one of the best football players in the state of Alabama, Timothy Alexander was paralyzed from the waist down and confined to a wheelchair. His life could have ended then, but to think that means you don't know Timothy Alexander. Since then, he has refused to take no for an answer.
Be it large or small, he has taken on every challenge - and taken on the most powerful people in Alabama - when he feels he needs to cure a wrong. That's just the way he's wired. In his wheelchair, he became part of the football program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. And when the state power brokers decided to shut down the program, it was this young man in a wheelchair who rallied a campus, a city and a state to bring the football program back. He won, because he doesn't know any other way to live.
"Ever Faithful, Ever Loyal'' is Timothy Alexander's emotional and inspirational story. It will make you laugh, and it will make you cry - a lot. A rough childhood, a horrible accident, years of excruciating rehabilitation - all with a smile on his face. He has three degrees now, is an accomplished nationwide speaker and a huge part of the renewed UAB football program. Enjoy Timothy's story, beautifully told along with longtime sports journalist Tim Stephens.
