Eric MahlFormer NFL Player Eric Mahl was announced as the keynote speaker for the 2017 Catholic Men’s Conference that’s taking place on October 28th in Portland, Oregon. The event is designed and put together for all young men at least 16 years of age who participate in the Catholic religion. The conference will begin at 8:30 a.m. and finish around 4:30 p.m.. Tickets to get in are $60 at the door, $50 in advance, and only $30 for teenagers and young adults between the ages of 16 and 22. Mahl is likely to discuss his life leading up to the NFL and how it impacted his environment and faith. In addition to that, he will share stories about how his religion has helped him through some of the difficult times prior to becoming a professional football player.

The former Cleveland Browns player has stated that he has always known that he wanted to live a life centered on his faith. In 2005, he decided that it was too hard to leave the sport by himself, so he prayed a lot on it and ended up being cut from the team. Despite how difficult it was for him to leave the NFL, he had a new sense of freedom and was able to pursue the life he believes he was meant to live.

Mahl is scheduled to be the keynote speaker later on this fall on October 28th in Portland, Oregon for the 2017 Catholic Men’s Conference. It is open to men and male young adults of 16 years and up, so be sure to get your tickets in advance.

Tim Brown Speaking FeeNFL legend Tim Brown was the keynote speaker for this year’s annual “Fruit of the Spirit” Awards Banquet in Texas on Saturday, September 16th. In addition to his speech, Brown took the time to do some book signings for his fans and showcase his new book titled “The Making of a Man: How Men and Boys Honor God and Live With Integrity”. During his time on stage, Brown expressed how glad he is that he was able to be raised in a Christian home and had several religious mentors during his upbringing. Having these people in his life allowed him to stay on track for his own life and nourish his personal interest in Christianity. It was a very memorable talk that Brown gave at the banquet, and it was also a good opportunity to learn about his new written work.

The Dallas, Texas native didn’t even get a start playing football until his sophomore year of high school, which he had to do secretly as his mother did not want him on the team. She eventually figured it out that Brown was playing football which the marching band called his home to ask why he had so many absences, but he did end up getting to stay with the sport. By the time he was ready to graduate from high school he received numerous offers for sports scholarships but decided to commit to Notre Dame. Brown entered the 1988 NFL Draft as the 6th overall pick by the then, Los Angeles Raiders. He stayed with the Raiders franchise for 15 years before briefly joining Tampa Bay’s roster prior to retiring. Since leaving his playing career behind, Brown has been a college football analyst for ESPN and the general manager and co-owner of the Texas Revolution in the Indoor Football League.

Brown recently was the keynote speaker for this year’s annual “Fruit of the Spirit” Awards Banquet that occurred earlier this month. It was a great time for everyone who got to attend, and many motivational lessons were learned.

Kurt WarnerNFL legend Kurt Warner took some time to share the story of his unique Hall of Fame journey with the audience at the Civic Center in Jackson this summer. He told the audience about how over the years he struggled with first being undrafted after college and then fighting his way to the Green Bay Packers’ roster in 1994. Ultimately, Warner was cut from the team and he spent some time stocking shelves at a grocery store in Iowa. It wasn’t until 1998 that he was given a second chance to play in the NFL for the St. Louis Rams, with whom he stayed with until 2003. After that, he did a brief stint with the New York Giants before ending his career with four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. After officially retiring in 2010, Warner became a broadcaster for the Iowa Barnstormers. It wasn’t until February 2017 that the Super Bowl XXXIV Champion was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Warner played some football in college but went undrafted after leaving school in 1994 and ended up stocking shelves in a grocery store. Since no NFL team was willing to give him a chance decided to try out for an AFL team and ended up really making a name for himself as a star performer. This caught the attention of the NFL and they invited him to try out for the Chicago Bears but ended up signing with the Rams in 1998 instead. The Super Bowl XXXIV champion and MVP also converted to Christianity during this transition of his life, which is one of the big reasons he is appealing to speak at this year’s Christian Day at the Ballpark.

Warner recently spoke to an audience at Jackson’s Civic Center to share the story of how he made it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It was very humbling and touching for the crowd to hear about this journey, which included a lot of setbacks and moments of resilience.

On that day at the end of July, the wide receiver also conveyed to the kids that whether it’s a sport or something else in life that they are trying for, it’s important to grab every opportunity that comes their way to see where it leads them. He really wanted the kids to know that it’s extremely important to love what they do for work, too, and not to forget to have fun while they are doing whatever it is they enjoy.

Braxton Miller cap n crunchHouston Texans Braxton Miller recently signed a deal with Cap’n Crunch to promote their limited “Touchdown Crunch” cereal that is only being produced for 40 boxes in the Columbus area. The idea is to get kids excited for the upcoming NFL season which officially started in the first week of September, and Kroger thought Miller was the right athlete for the job.
