Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Priest Holmes was announced as a speaker at the Boys and Girls Club of Southern Missouri banquet event happening at the Downtown Casino Resort Pavilion that happened on Saturday, October 17. Tickets to get into the event were $75 per person or $750 for an entire table, and all proceeds went to benefit the organization. Holmes spoke about his life and career in the NFL and described many of the obstacles that came across his way, as well as how he found ways to overcome them and bring out the best in his abilities. The guests to the banquet were honored that Holmes came to speak and it was a fun and very memorable time for all.
The three-time Pro Bowl player started playing the sport in the streets of his neighborhood with other kids, and ended up taking those skills to his high school football fields to develop his game. He attended the University of Texas from 1992 through 1996 and played all four years, but did not enter the NFL draft after graduation. Holmes signed on with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 1997 and helped lead his team to win the Super Bowl XXXV championship. In 2001 he signed a contract with the Kansas City Chiefs and played with the team through his retirement in 2007.
Holmes spoke at this year’s Boys and Girls Club of Southern Missouri banquet that happened earlier this October and it is needless to say that he made a great impact on his listeners.
