Ex-Vol Spreads Christmas Cheer

ATLANTA (AP) -- Residents of the Atlanta Housing Authority are getting an early Christmas present from former NFL player Jamal Lewis.

Lewis, an Atlanta native who founded trucking company All American Xpress after leaving the NFL this year, is handing Christmas trees out to low-income residents Friday morning. The housing authority serves more than 50,000 people and is the largest public housing organization in the state.

Atlanta-based TLP Transport is helping with the tree project.

Lewis' 200-truck company is based in Calhoun, Ga., with a second terminal in Lakeland, Fla. The former University of Tennessee running back played for the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.
