Titans Players Host Holiday Events in Nashville


NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Even while in the middle of a December playoff push, the Titans made the time to give back to their community with several holiday celebrations this month. In addition to participating in team activities, many players organized their own Christmas events around Nashville.

  • Logan Ryan invited 26 children from the Boys & Girls Club of Middle Tennessee to shop with him at Academy Sports + Outdoors. He also hosted a pet health clinic that provided more than 110 pets with free vaccinations, and he spent time with 26 military veterans and their families over lunch at his weekly radio show.
  • Marcus Mariota and his Motiv8 Foundation unveiled a home that they built in partnership with Habitat for Humanity and Warrick Dunn's Homes for the Holidays program.

  • Jack Conklin hosted a Christmas party for nearly 50 children at the Boys & Girls Club of Middle Tennessee's Valor Clubhouse.
  • Kamalei Correa hosted an event at Academy Sports + Outdoors for children from the Northwest YMCA. Teammates Jayon Brown, Rashaan Evans, Sharif Finch, Harold Landry, and Jeremy McNichols also attended and helped the children shop for clothing, shoes, and sports equipment.
  • Taylor Lewan co-hosted Miracle on 4th, a holiday event that raised more than $100,000 for Home Street Home, a local organization that provides necessities and builds relationships in order to rebuild lives of homeless individuals in Nashville.
  • Jurrell Casey hosted a Christmas party for children from Free Hearts, a Nashville-based group that provides support for families of incarcerated individuals.
