Former Detroit Lions NFL linebacker and philanthropist Stephen Tulloch kicks off his own “Signature 55” coffee line, with some of the proceeds going to The Stephen Tulloch Foundation. He is a former American football linebacker. He was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at North Carolina State. He was also a member of the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles.
Tulloch, who wore jersey number 55, committed to donating 55 cents from every bag of Signature 55 coffee sold online to The Stephen Tulloch Foundation. These funds will be channeled back into the city of Detroit, supporting his charitable Annual Athletes Adopting Families holiday event.
Now, as the owner of Circle House Coffee in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Tulloch is working to raise awareness for local and global causes “one sip at a time.”
Since 2018, his Circle House Coffee shop, in partnership with The Stephen Tulloch Foundation, has been giving back to the community, generating funds for various South Florida-based nonprofits, including the Pink Angels Memorial Foundation, Women In Distress, and Heart Gallery of Broward County.
Tulloch will mark the launch of the Signature 55 coffee line with a homecoming to Detroit. The exclusive launch party, presented by Remy Martin, is scheduled for 7 p.m. Oct. 28 at Slider Sidecar Bar in Birmingham.
Beyond the football field, Tulloch’s dedication to community service earned him the Walter Payton Man of the Year Community Service Team Award four times.
Through the Stephen Tulloch Foundation, he has championed causes that range from supporting underprivileged kids to aiding those affected by cancer. Initiatives include treating 55 kids affected by cancer to every home game, adopting families during the holidays, authoring the children’s book “The Little Linebacker: Story of Determination,” and building the Mercedes B. Tulloch Infant School in his mother’s hometown of Westmoreland, Jamaica, in her honor.
