With our rich history of tradition at Wintzell's, we are honored to join the celebration of Alabama's Wishbone Boys impact on college football. - Buffy Donlon

What started as an idea several years ago has turned into a reunion at the beach. Filmmaker Tim Card worked with Athletic Director Mal Moore to conceive a documentary featuring the men who popularized the Wishbone Offense of the 1970’s. After Mr. Moore’s passing, the project stalled.

With the help of Buffy Donlon, owner of Wintzell’s Oyster House, the documentary has new life. Mrs. Donlon suggested bringing the players, coaches, trainers, writers and all those involved in those years, together to reminisce and provide an opportunity for Mr. Card to capture them on film.

Additionally, Mrs. Donlon and Mr. Card wanted fans to be able to experience these legendary players. The Wishbone Boys Fan Experience will take place on Saturday, March 15th 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Flora-Bama Lounge, Package and Oyster Bar. Featuring three bands and activities for families, the Fan Experience is sponsored by Bellator Real Estate and all proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warriors Project. The Fan Experience is a free event and open to the public.

Fans of all ages are invited to attend the Fan Experience day and can learn more by visiting
