Mark Schlereth SpeakerFormer NFL stars and current ESPN expert analysts Mark Schlereth and Merril Hoge will be joining up at the University of Charleston Speaker Series on Tuesday, January 21, 2014. The program is titled “Under Review: The Future of Football and the NFL,” and begins at 6:30 p.m. at Riggleman Hall’s Geary Auditorium. During the event Schlereth and Hoge will be talking about their experiences in the game in regards to injuries and will be giving their views on how to make the game safe in the future while also keeping the spirit of the game.

“This event is different for me,” Schlereth said. “I usually do a lot of motivational speaking, with my background and unique perspective of being a former NFL player, a commentator and I also own a food company (Mark Schlereth’s Stinkin’ Good Green Chili). I’m excited about coming to West Virginia and meeting everybody. It’s going to be fun.”

Am autograph signing is scheduled for 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the Rotunda in UC’s Riggleman Hall, with a limit to one item per person. The program is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. and will last approximately two hours.

Schlereth is no stranger to football related injuries. During his twelve-year career in the NFL as an offensive lineman with the Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins he had 29 surgeries directly related to his football career. Despite his injuries, which have given him a unique perspective and expertise in the area of safety in the NFL, he had a very successful career, winning Super Bowl rings with both franchises he played with and earning All-Pro and All-NFL individual honors several times during his career.

Merril Hoge played eight seasons as a Running Back for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears. In 1994 he made the decision to retire after suffering several major concussions and receiving information that any further concussions could cause permanent brain damage. In 1996 Hoge joined ESPN as a football analyst and has since become one of the most trusted and well known analyst on the network.
