NFL legend Joe Theismann was the guest speaker on June 19 at the Westin Hotel for the luncheon hosted by the Charlotte Touchdown Club. Theismann spoke well over an hour about his experiences playing professional football and what his relationship with his coach, Joe Gibbs, was like during that time. The Super Bowl Champion even told the audience about his career ending leg injury that happened on live television during a game against the New York Giants. Overall it was a very fun and informative event, and everyone in that room left the luncheon with a little more insight and understanding of what life in the NFL is like. Before the event, the two-time Pro Bowl player took some time to speak with a reporter in which he named the Carolina Panthers as the team to beat.
The New Jersey native was the starting quarterback at his college, Notre Dame, and he played there for a couple of years before being picked up by the Miami Dolphins but contract complications led him to sign with the Toronto Argonauts in the Canadian Football League. In 1974 the Dolphins traded their rights with Theismann to the Washington Redskins where he played on the franchise for 11 years. The 1983 Pro Bowl MVP worked for ESPN’s Sunday Night Football from 1988 through 2005 after his playing career came to a halt.
Theismann spoke at the Charlotte Touchdown Club on June 19 where a luncheon took place in which he told the guests about his awesome football career and answered many questions about his experiences both on and off the field in that time frame.
