Gene Stallings to Speak in Shoals

Alabama Football means tradition, and nothing says, “Alabama Tradition” like Coach Gene Stallings. Though retired from coaching, Stallings has continually inspired us via radio programs and speeches given across America. Hailing from Paris, Texas, Stallings ensures availability to meet with fans and football followers alike.

Thursday, August 3, 2017 is no exception. The Rogersville Chamber of Commerce and Town of Rogersville will co-host A Night with Coach Gene Stallings at the Florence-Lauderdale Coliseum is Florence, Alabama. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m., featuring a catered dinner and speech delivered by Coach Stallings. Over the years, Stallings has built a large following, as his speeches and lifestyle inspire thousands. Attendees can expect an incredible night of storytelling, life motivation and a good ole’ time with the Football Hall of Famer himself.

Many of you have heard the news—Coach Stallings suffered a stroke earlier this year, and was hospitalized for a brief time. The Rogersville Chamber has been in constant contact with Stallings, and is assured his health is improving. Stallings has laughed, joked and continued about his business as if nothing can stop him—and it can’t.

Stallings is taking a summer hiatus for recovery, with the Rogersville Chamber fundraiser being his first event following the break. According to Director, Kate Brown, “The Chamber is honored by his commitment to this event. We pray for a speedy recovery, and are grateful he is taking time to rest and recuperate. Mr. Stallings is an inspiration to everyone he meets, so we join his many admiring fans in wishing the best for him.”
