It will feature celebrities such as Archie Griffin, Edgerrin James, Clark Kellogg, Chris Wormley, Storm Norton and others.

"It's the community that helped me along my journey and I can't forget the people that were there for me outside my parents and my family," said Hopson. "If you can return the favor, you should do that. I'm able to return the favor so I'm going to do that."

The golf outing will take place on Monday, May 2. at Stone Oak Country Club in Holland from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
