Anthony Perry has the nickname he had since he was a kid. Because he cut off part of his finger on his right hand, his family called him Lefty.
The name stuck.
Now Anthony “Lefty” Perry is being inducted into the Huntsville-Madison County Athletic Hall of Fame. He played for Bear Bryant at Alabama in the 1970s, helping the program win a National Championship. But after not feeling satisfied by life after football, he decided to become a pastor.
