John Croyle was an All-American defensive end at the University of Alabama during head coach Paul "Bear" Bryant's legendary tenure. Faced with the decision to play professional football or to start a home for abused and neglected children, John established Big Oak Boys' Ranch in 1974. Today Big Oak Ranch, Inc. has grown to include Big Oak Girls' Ranch and Westbrook Christian School. John and his wife Tee have helped raise nearly 2,000 children through Big Oak Ranch as well as their biological son Brodie, a former NFL quarterback, and daughter Reagan, a former basketball player at the University of Alabama. Today John, wife Tee, and children Brodie and Reagan, along with the Big Oak Ranch staff, continue to meet the needs of hundreds of children by giving them a solid Christian home and a chance to fulfill God's plan for their lives.
