Last year’s champion Billy Joe Tolliver, a former NFL quarterback, headlined the field Wednesday at the annual Lake Tahoe Celebrity-Am Tournament.

Tolliver has won the American Century Championship title three times — 1996, 2005 and 2013.

Three other former champions — Mark Rypien, Jack Wagner and Rick Rhoden — also played in the celebrity-am event. Wagner, who won in 2006 and 2011 and is the only non-athlete to win the ACC. Rhoden, an eight-time champion is one of two players to win back-to-back years.
