Former Boyle County and University of Kentucky tight end Jacob Tamme, who now plays with the unbeaten Denver Broncos, will receive the Doug Flynn Kentucky First Award for his contributions to veterans and their families and for giving back to his state at such a young age Sunday night in Lexington. Tamme and his wife annually host a golf scramble that raises money to help build new homes for wounded military personnel.
It’s part of the “Get in the Game Dinner” at the Kentucky High School Athletic Association headquarters and will include a social at 5 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m. WKYT-TV sports personality Dave Baker will be the master of ceremonies and UK women’s basketball coach Matthew Mitchell will be the featured speaker.
This event is associated with the Austin Kearns Celebrity Golf Classic Monday at Greenbrier County Club in Lexington that has a noon shotgun start. Entry fee is $1,500 per threesome and will include a celebrity golfer along with six tickets to the dinner honoring Tamme.
Proceeds from both events benefit Score International, which helps over 5,000 Americans each year travel on mission trips. Former UK baseball coach Keith Madison is the national baseball director for Score International and takes hundreds of caches, athletes and fans to the Dominican Republic to “share the love of Christ under the umbrella of baseball” through competition and clinics.
Kearns, a Lexington native, was the seventh overall draft pick for the Cincinnati Reds out of high school and played with the Nationals, Indians, Yankees and Marlins. This is his sixth year to host the golf tourney.
