Cory Watson Attorneys extends their deepest sympathies to the family, friends and fans of Kevin Turner. Turner died at his home in Vestavia Hills, Alabama this morning after a long battle with ALS. He was 46 years old.
Football fans will remember him for his time as a fullback at the University of Alabama and his eight seasons in the NFL in the 1990s. Kevin was much more than a football player; he was a devoted father, a passionate advocate for others suffering with ALS, and a spearhead for fundraising to further ALS research. As founder of the Kevin Turner Foundation, Turner was active in educating athletes about the link between brain trauma and ALS.
Kevin Turner will be greatly missed.
