Bradley and Nikki Bozeman Are Embracing New Life in Charlotte
Two former athletes of the Crimson Tide have their sights set on making an impact in their new home.
After signing a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, Bradley Bozeman and his wife Nikki Bozeman are looking to embrace and give back to their new home in Charlotte, N.C.
In an interview with Augusta Stone of Panthers.com, the Bozeman's spoke of how they are taking in Charlotte, connecting with the locals and looking to make a difference through their charity, The Bradley and Nikki Bozeman Foundation. The charity focuses on strengthening communities, tackling issues such as food insecurity, anti-bullying, and more.
“Everywhere we’ve been, we’ve jumped into the community,” said Bradley. “That’s the best way to see things. You have to really be involved to hear people out.”
“We just want to make the biggest impact we can,” said Nikki. “Whether that's feeding kids, mentoring, going to schools and hosting our assemblies, going to youth football camps, just speaking and being present, I think it's so important to grow your biggest footprint you can and help as many people as you can."
Helping out isn’t the only thing the Bozeman's have done so far in the city. The two have toured the city, attended events hosted by the Carolina Panthers, enjoyed some concerts, and even stopped to see a Charlotte FC game in May.
Bozeman won’t just be looking to contribute off the field, but on the field as well. After leaving the Baltimore Ravens and signing a one-year deal worth $2.8 million in the offseason, Bozeman will provide a veteran presence at center to an offensive line that has ranked near the bottom of the league in most statistical categories. Bozeman is the third former Alabama player on Carolina’s roster, joining offensive guard Deonte Brown and long snapper Thomas Fletcher.
