NFL Hall of Famer Tim Brown spoke at the New Orleans Bowl luncheon that happened on Friday, December 18 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Louisiana Tech and Arkansas State University’s spirit squads and bands opened up the celebration, and everyone was excited and full of enthusiasm to be there. Brown spoke to the audience about his life as a professional athlete, and reminded all young athletes that sometimes coaches can see potential in them that they don’t even know that they have yet. In addition to that, the nine-time Pro Bowl player told the attendees that if they choose to get into a football program it will not only teach them to be great at sports, but also to be disciplined men.
The Dallas, Texas native was a star football player during his high school years, and ended up attending and playing for the University of Notre Dame from 1984-1987 where he earned the nickname “Touchdown Timmy”. He entered the 1988 NFL Draft and was selected as the 6th overall pick by the then, Los Angeles Raiders. Brown stayed with the Raiders from 1988-2003 and then a brief stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before retiring in 2004. In addition to that, the former star player started a NASCAR team to celebrate the “Drive for Diversity” program.
Brown spoke at this year’s New Orleans Bowl luncheon that happened earlier this month and it was a huge success. The 1987 Heisman Trophy Winner reminded athletes that learning to work with one another and discipline in sports programs is just as valuable as the sports techniques themselves.
