Hall of Famer Warren Moon went up to Alaska at the beginning of the month to speak at the Pillars of America luncheon at the city’s Centennial Hall. The hosts and attendees at the event were very excited to have Moon there to share stories and information about all his experience as a professional football player and sports analyst. The nine-time Pro Bowl player was also able to provide a lot of insight and encouragement to his listeners, and the luncheon was a very unforgettable experience for everyone who was lucky enough to be there.
The Los Angeles, California native played football in college for the University of Washington, but did not manage to get drafted by the NFL after he graduated. As a result, Moon went to play for the Edmonton Eskimos from 1978 through 1983 before returning to the United States to join the Houston Oilers for nine years. After that he also did some brief playing for the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings before doing his last professional football season with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2000. Moon was invited into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006 when he made history by being the first African American quarterback to be inducted.
Moon spoke at this year’s Pillars of American luncheon that happened in Juneau, Alaska earlier this month on May 4th. The participants of the event were thrilled to hear from Moon about his many amazing stories from the sports world, both in the past and present.
