UA’s Stacy brings motivational message to FDA students

Former Alabama football player Siran Stacy, who lost four daughters and his wife in a tragic car accident in 2007, will be a special guest speaker of Fort Dale Academy on Thursday.

Stacy will address FDA students at an assembly at 10:15 a.m.

Fort Dale Headmaster David Brantley said Stacy’s appearance continues the school’s mission of trying to expose its students to positive role models. FDA recently hosted former UA and Miami Dolphin player Don McNeal.

“We’re very excited to have Siran come and speak here,” he said.

Stacy played college football for the Crimson Tide and was a two-time All-SEC performer. He played professional football for the Philadelphia Eagles, the Scottish Claymores and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
