Jalen Hurts joins Tim Tebow’s ‘Night to Shine’ special needs prom event

If you expected Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts to become reclusive following his benching in the national championship game, then you don’t know him very well. Instead of retreating to the shadows, he’s stayed in the light.

The latest example came Friday night with his participation in Tim Tebow’s worldwide phenomenon, “Night to Shine.”

The event, held in 500 separate locations in every state and 16 countries across the globe, provides a once-in-a-lifetime prom-like evening for special needs teenagers. The event is supported by some 175,000 volunteers, of which Hurts was one this year.

Hurts participated at the Night to Shine event being held at Shelton State Community College in Tuscaloosa hosted there by the Big Sandy Baptist Church.
