Former college football coach Jim Tressel has been announce as the event speaker for the Men’s Challenge fundraising kickoff dinner at the McKinley Grand Hotel on March 12. The organization has been around for three years now and strives to raise money to help unemployable men find jobs to provide for themselves. Tickets for the fundraiser costs $40 and the dinner is from 6pm to 7:30pm.
After he graduated from college Tressel started his coaching career out by becoming an assistant for the University of Akron while he pursued his masters degree. By 1978 he took a job at Miami University to coach quarterbacks and receivers where he stayed until 1981. Over the next 29 years he also coached for Syracuse, Youngstown State, and most notably, Ohio State. During his time at OSU he lead his football team to three BCS National Championship games and even had a perfect season of 14-0 in 2002. Tressel has since retired from coaching, but now serves as the Youngstown State University president.
The organizers of the Men’s Challenge event are extremely excited to have Tressel as their key speaker and expect his presence to draw in a large audience. Men’s Challenge is a non-profit Christ-organization that tackles root causes of poverty.
