New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker is scheduled to speak at the first ever Central Minnesota Sports Awards banquet to honor high school athletes. The event will take place on June 17 at St. Cloud’s River’s Edge Convention Center and is going to be hosted by the Times Media. Anywhere between 1,200 and 1,500 people are expected to attend the banquet and it will be a fantastic inaugural celebration. The cost will be free for those athletes who are nominated by the Times and the general public will be able to purchase tickets to get in too. Times Media Publisher Melinda Vonderahe stated that they put a big effort into getting Decker to be their speaker and were so thrilled that he agreed to do it, as the wide receiver has Minnesota ties and that would make it even more meaningful to the participants. In addition to that, the Tom Bearson Foundation will be giving a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving nominee.
The Cold Spring, Minnesota native played football, baseball, and basketball during high school and was awarded all-conference, all-area, and all-section honors for each sport. He ended up attending the University of Minnesota in 2008, and was even drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 2009 MLB Draft. However he waited until 2010 to be a professional athlete and was selected in that year’s NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos in the third round. He stayed with the team for three years before signing a five year contract with the New York Jets in 2014.
Decker is going to be the speaker for the inaugural Central Minnesota Sports Awards banquet this summer and he will help celebrate with star high school athletes who are nominated for recognition. It should be a great event, and tickets will be available to purchase by the general public.
