About

Timothy Alexander is a faith driven young man who has dedicated his life to motivating and inspiring others. A native of Birmingham Alabama, Timothy attended Erwin High School and was ranked the #8 high school football player in the state. Timothy had the opportunity to play for any college in the country; however, he was involved in a life changing car accident in 2006, leaving him paralyzed from the neck down. From that point on, Timothy was left to find his purpose in life while paralyzed.

 
“I have never met anyone like Timothy Alexander in my life. The passion in which he presents his story while exemplifying the strength, character, and positivity that can come from adversity is unique and life changing. Timothy made a lasting impression on our young professional athletes and staff. We feel lucky to have had the opportunity to meet and hear Timothy speak.”
