Former USC players have started “Fight On Forever,” a new non-profit entity “with the purpose of caring for former Trojan teammates facing life’s challenges.”
Fight On Forever will assist individuals or families dealing with economic hardships, health-related issues or struggles with addiction and mental health.
The group has partnered with Hall of Fame Health, which was formed by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and assists former NFL players and their families. The CEO of Hall of Fame Health is former USC offensive lineman Jeremy Hogue.
Among the former USC players on the Fight On Forever board of directors are Brad Leggett, Frostee Rucker, Rodney Peete, Sam Baker, Mike Lamb and Hogue. The Advisory Board includes Ronnie Lott, Anthony Munoz, Keyshawn Johnson and Marcus Allen.
“To truly help guys and their families is hard work. It’s more than money. And it’s more than one or two guys can do on their own,” Leggett said. “That’s what Fight
On Forever is trying to be – an organization with real resources that can engage with people needing help by developing a real game plan that impacts lives forever.”
