Fish and Football: Alabama Gulf Seafood at the Reese’s Senior Bowl

Whether you’re tailgating at the game, treating your friends to an array of appetizers, or firing up the backyard grill with your family, fresh Gulf seafood goes great with college football.

That’s why Alabama Gulf Seafood is proud to be an official sponsor of the 2016 Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile on Saturday, January 30.

Every year, the Reese’s Senior Bowl showcases some of the best players in college football’s senior class with this end-of-the-year all-star game.

Football fans throughout the country can tune in to see their favorite four-year players in their last college showcase. But fans in Mobile will enjoy much more than just the game thanks to great events all week long.

“I am so happy to be involved with the Senior Bowl events because we get to share our great seafood with players, coaches, scouts and media from all over the country,” said Chris Blankenship, director of Alabama Marine Resources and program administrator for the Alabama Seafood Marketing Commission. “I hope to create several ‘seafood ambassadors’ that will go back to their respective cities and rave about the seafood and hospitality they enjoyed in Alabama.”

We’re excited to be involved in Media Night once again. We’ll be serving fresh Alabama Gulf Seafood that night for the Seafood Jubilee at the Battle House Renaissance Hotel. (Invite only, though. Sorry folks.)

Then on Friday night, we’ll be back for the Senior Bowl Experience at the Mobile Convention Center. And yes, this one’s open to the public, so if you’re traveling for the game, we hope you’ll get there a day early.


We’re excited for the City of Mobile as everyone gears up to host another fantastic collection of college football talent, and we’re excited to be a sponsor of this wonderful event.

“I’m proud to be affiliated with a great organization like the Senior Bowl,” Blankenship said. “The sports world will be focused on Coastal Alabama for an entire week. The exposure is great for our area and for the seafood industry.”

So tune in, eat up, and enjoy the South’s favorite sport, Gulf seafood fans.
