Westshore Blvd. One Tampa Bay Buccaneer and two high-school football players will receive awards for "exemplifying the spirit of Ricky Bell by the giving of himself to the community of Tampa Bay." Bell, the former Buc running back, died in 1985.
The selection committee includes former Bucs Jimmie Giles, Charley Hannah and Lee Roy Selmon. A silent auction is at 5:30 p.m., main auction at 6, and dinner at 7. Tickets can be ordered by calling Les Roth at (941) 758-8600.
