Ever Faithful, Ever Loyal: Timothy Alexander Gives Inspiring Message at BPL Staff Day

Birmingham, Ala. - After a car accident in 2006 left him paralyzed from the neck down, ending his dreams of playing college and professional football, Birmingham’s Timothy Alexander wanted to give up.

At the time, Alexander was a 17-year-old football star at Erwin High School on the path to college football greatness, ranked the #8 player in the state of Alabama and being recruited by top college football programs across the nation. Yet Alexander, inspired by encouraging words from his mother, built a new determination to overcome doubters and has achieved accomplishments even he never imagined.

 During a keynote address at the Birmingham Public Library’s 2019 Staff Day on October 24, Alexander told attendees to never underestimate the value of the work they do. He shared his amazing testimony depicted in his new book, Ever Faithful, Ever Loyal: The Timothy Alexander Story. The book is a memoir about how the Birmingham native overcame obstacles after the 2006 car wreck that left him in a wheelchair, and dedicated his life to motivating and inspiring others.
