Former NFL Star Shaun Alexander was the keynote speaker for this year’s Kona Ice Conference that happened at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center on Friday, February 10th. The theme of the event was “going pro”, so Kona Ice founder Tony Lamb figured Alexander to be the perfect fit, as he had a career as a professional athlete. There was a lot of discussion as to what it takes to be a professional and make it to that level in any business industry, and the former Seahawk’s talk tapped into how people can really evaluate their choices and go for their wildest dreams if they so choose.
The Florence, Kentucky native started playing team football during his high school years, which led him to have several offers for athletic scholarships for colleges. He ended up choosing to attend the University of Alabama where he spent four years and completed his degree before entering in the 2000 NFL Draft. Alexander was selected in the first round of the draft by the Seattle Seahawks and stayed with the team for over seven years before doing just one more with the Washington Redskins prior to his retirement. The three-time Pro Bowl Player is also the all-time rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, and rushing attempts leader for the Seattle Seahawks.
Alexander showed up in his home state of Kentucky earlier this month to give a talk at this year’s Kona Ice Conference at the Northern Kentucky Conference Center. Since he is a former athlete, company founder Tony Lamb picked Alexander to represent their theme of “going pro” as he felt that he would be relevant for the event.
