Jeff Redcross--A Friend to UNA

On Monday, Florence Police Chief Rick Singleton officially discharged Sgt. Jeff Redcross for policy violations. Redcross has retained Florence attorney Tim Case to represent him in an appeal; Case is also currently representing Tuscumbia Police Chief Tony Logan, a former Deputy Chief to Singleton.

Whatever the outcome of Redcross' current problems, he has always been a staunch supporter of University of North Alabama football. A 1990 graduate of Sparkman High, Redcross played four seasons as a defensive end for Coach Bobby Wallace and was voted the Most Valuable Defensive Player of 1993. He is currently a sidelines/color commentator for Lions' football. Redcross is also a former member of the Marine Reserves, having served in Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield, and completed his degree in Criminal Justice at UNA in 2001.

Thanks, Jeff, for your continued support of UNA.


This week we will be paying tribute to family and friends that we and our readers lost in 2009. If you have anyone you would like remembered, please forward the information as soon as possible.
