Honoring Brigance

Former Owl linebacker O.J. Brigance will be honored by the athletics department, the R Association and members of the football teams from 1987-91 on April 18 at Rice Stadium.

Brigance, the Baltimore Ravens’ director of player development, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a motor neuron disease, in 2007.

The “Celebration of Courage” at Rice will recognize Brigance’s accomplishments and raise money to fund an endowed scholarship in his name, support the annual designation of the Brigance Courage Award and provide a financial contribution to the Brigance Brigade to support its efforts to promote ALS research and education.
