Legendary Coach Dale Brown has been announced as the keynote speaker for the Heart of Hope banquet that’s happening on Thursday, February 9th at the Shreveport Convention Center in Shreveport, Louisiana. Coach Brown will share his passion for the sport of basketball and discuss where he thinks the sport is at these days, and how it has changed over the course of the years he was involved in. The proceeds from the event will benefit the Heart for Hope center which serves as a sanctuary for young ladies who are experiencing unplanned pregnancies from ages 11 to 23. For details on how you can attend this event, visit their homepage to find out more about tickets.
The Minot, North Dakota native was noticeably a star athlete at his high school as he participated in football, basketball and track as well. He ended up taking his sports talents with him to college at Minot State Teacher’s College where he continued to thrive in these sports and earned 12 varsity letters, which he is the only person who has ever been able to do that for multiple events. He was honored to be named one of Sports Illustrated’s Top 50 Athletes from North Dakota, but instead of playing professionally he went the coaching route. From 1965 through 1997, Brown coached for Palm Springs HS, Utah State, Washington State, and LSU.
Brown will be in Shreveport, LA on February 9th to give a speech for the Heart of Hope banquet to benefit young girls and women between the ages of 11 and 23 who experience unplanned pregnancies. He will likely discuss his career and give out words of inspiration to the audience, who remember his glory days as the coach at LSU.
