NFL great to speak on football’s lessons
Mecklenburg played with the Denver Broncos from 1983-1994. He rose from being a college walk-on and a 12th-round draft pick to a pro career that included six Pro Bowl and three Super Bowl appearances.
He will share what the NFL taught him about teamwork, dedication, courage and honesty, and how student-athletes can apply those lessons to their lives.
Mecklenburg is the author of “Heart of a Student Athlete: All Pro Advice for Competitors and Their Families.”
This free event is open to the public.
The Scheels Center is on the school’s north campus at 124 N. Terrace.
