Former running back for the Kansas City Chiefs Marcus Allen was the featured guest speaker at the Levi’s Stadium on November 6th just before the San Francisco 49ers took on the New Orleans Saints on the field. He was able to give some fantastic words of motivation and also got people pumped up for the game, no matter which side they were cheering for. Allen talked about his experiences to the running backs as well as the offensive line and shared with them some pointers to keep their best game tactics in action. His words of wisdom were extremely valuable to the players, who enjoyed hearing from someone who was in their shoes not too long ago.

In 1999, Allen was inducted into the San Diego Hall of Champions and into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2003. Since his retirement, he has joined the sportswebsite OPENSports.com as a spokesman and also occacionally writes blogs for them and answers member questions from time to time.
Allen showed up at Levi Stadium earlier this month to give a pep talk to the football players as they prepared to hit the ground running that day. The entire team was thrilled to hear from a pro and legend like Allen, and it was a great opportunity for him to share some words of wisdom.
