This coming July, Mark Schlereth will be speaking at the annual Semoball Awards event. The event that originally started in 2014 looks to acknowledge the best of the best in area high school sports. The red carpet event will honor the top high school athletes in the Southeastern Missouri area. Along with nominating athletes, people in the Semoball area can nominate the top fans in the area as well. The event is scheduled for July 9th at the River Campus in Cape Girardeau with the selection show to be held June 13th at 10 AM First Midwest Bank also in Cape Girardeau.
The Anchorage, Alaska native Mark Schlereth played guard in the NFL for 12 seasons. Schlereth was recruited to play college football by Dennis Erickson at the University of Idaho where he blocked for current NFL coach Scott Linehan. After his playing days at Idaho, Schlereth was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the 10th round of the 1989 draft. Schlereth subsequently played six years with the Redskins where he made one Pro Bowl and won one Super Bowl. Following his time with the Redskins, Schlereth went to play with the Denver Broncos and John Elway. With the Broncos, Schlereth made another Pro Bowl and won two more Super Bowls. After 29 surgeries, 20 of which were on his knees, and 12 years, Schlereth’s playing days were over. However, Schlereth has become a mainstay on ESPN and NFL Live where he is an analyst. Over his playing days Schlereth was often referred to as being one of the toughest guys in the NFL.
This upcoming July, Mark Schlereth will be speaking at the annual Semoball Awards Show. The event will look to have another great turnout and will honor the top fans and athletes in the Southeastern Missouri area. Having a former NFL player and current analyst at the world’s number one sports network should give these athletes something to work towards and be an award in and of itself.
