This past weekend Bodybuilding.com was a proud sponsor of the Yo Murphy Foundation for Disadvantaged Kids NFL Celebrity basketball game in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

The former St Louis Rams wide receiver and punt returner has hosted a NFL golf tournament for the kids the past three years and decided to add to the kitty with a basketball game this year.

The team of NFL players and former players included:

  • Andre Hastings - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Az Hakim - Detroit Lions
  • Tyoka Jackson - St Louis Rams
  • Reidel Anthony - Washington Redskins
  • Tavarus Hogan - Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The NFL guys took on the area high school all stars in a game that featured high flyin speed combined with a little NFL showmanship.

During the few breaks in the action the Bodybuilding.com girls kept the crowd on their feet with their sizzling hot looks and lots of free t-shirts and workout towels tossed into the stands. The packed house had a blast, lots of money was raised for the kids and the after party went most of the night.
