Former NFL player for the Denver Broncos Steve Fitzhugh took a trip to Hagerstown to give a talk to the students at Bester Elementary School last Friday. He was accompanied by Pier Angelo Beltrami, a Paralympic silver medalist, who came along to give the kids some insight on overcoming their obstacles and how to meet challenges with power and persistence. Fitzhugh followed up his talk with some points on how to focus on their goals, and emphasized that this will be the key to their success in the future. He reiterated that the decisions that they make at this point in their lives will help plant the seeds of the many great things to come, and daydreaming about where they want to go is a great way to build the pathways for what they want to achieve.
Fitzhugh got his start in athletics as a track and field star, which eventually led him to a full athletic scholarship playing football for Miami University. After his college playing years were finished, he was signed on with the Denver Broncos in 1986, where he only played for two years due to an injury. The Ohio native then took his career in another direction as a author, humorist, and motivational speaker, especially geared towards guiding teenagers away from the drug and alcohol atmosphere. Fitzhugh now travels for a living and is invited to many different venues to give talks and speeches.
The former Bronco went to Bester Elementary last week in hopes of saying something that might help the kids find their drive and passion for their future goals. Oftentimes it only takes a little bit of encouragement from someone who has been through both great failures and successes to pass on that inspiration.
