Tampa Bay Buccaneers legend Derrick Brooks was the keynote speaker at the Pinellas County Urban League’s annual Equal Opportunity Day gala on September 18, 2014. During his speech the newly inducted Pro Football Hall of Famer encouraged the sold out crowd of over 500 to actively participate in making their community better and invest their time to enhance the lives of children.

In 2002 Brooks earned NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors after leading the Bucs to a victory in Super Bowl XXXVII.
Over the course of his Hall of Fame career he was named to the Pro-Bowl six times, earned All-NFC honors eight times, and was named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 2000’s. Brooks was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during the 2014 ceremonies in August 2014.
