Former Indiana University and NFL quarterback Trent Green and PGA Tour golfer John Daly were named Red Coat recipients for the 2011 Mad Anthonys Charity Classic golf event.
The two will be honored at the annual Red Coat Dinner on June 12 at Ceruti’s Summit Park, which precedes the annual Charity Classic golf tournament to be held June 13, at Sycamore Hills Country Club.
Green, a 1992 IU graduate, is a two-time Pro Bowl selection who played most notably for the Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Rams, earning a Super Bowl ring with the Rams in 2000.
During his tenure with the Chiefs, Green had his most successful years, passing for more than 4,000 yards in three consecutive seasons.
He was named to the Pro Bowl teams in 2003 and 2005.
Green, who, with his wife, Julie, and three children are residents of Fort Wayne, is a broadcaster with the NFL Network and the Westwood One Radio Network.
Daly has become a Charity Classic fan favorite and will play in this year’s event.
He is a five-time PGA Tour winner and has two major titles to his name – the 1991 PGA Championship at Crooked Stick Golf Club near Carmel and the 1995 British Open championship.
Famous for his grip-it-and-rip-it approach to the game, Daly is also known for his charitable work throughout the country, including Fort Wayne.
Last year, John was very generous with his time, as he greeted kids at the Lifetime Sports Academy the morning of the Charity Classic and hosted a round of golf at his home course in Arkansas, which generated $30,000 to help our charities, Mad Anthonys President Jeff Ottinger said in a written statement.
