We were excited to have Dave Rowe as our special guest and luncheon speaker for the 2018 Golf Classic.  Dave is a former NFL Super Bowl Champion and TV sports broadcaster.  Joining Dave as our luncheon MC was Phil Stone, Director of Broadcast Media with CBMC.  Here is a video with some clips from our event and the luncheon message with Dave and Phil.

Dave is a dynamic, energetic and humorous speaker, and will encourage and challenge you with his engaging talk, “CHAMPS - Be one!”   He remembers one day on the bleachers when one of his coaches told him “CHAMPS” are the ones who become great.  Dave shares “There are winners and losers in the game of “life” which we will ALL play. Winners have certain qualities that separate them from losers, and those things have nothing to do with the score of the contest.  It’s not about size, strength, speed or talent, but other qualities by which we will all be measured”.  You won’t want to miss Dave share what a true CHAMP is.

Dave played 13 seasons in the NFL, earning a spot at the Pro Bowl and making All-Pro for 2 years in a row.  The pinnacle of his football career was winning the Super Bowl with the Oakland Raiders.  After he retired from the NFL he entered sports broadcasting, first with NBC Sports.  He was involved in the broadcast of over 350 games and events during his 30-year career and has spoken at hundreds of events. 

Phil Stone joins us as our guest MC.  For 29 years, Phil sat at the window of the television sports world calling play-by-play of NFL Football and Major League Baseball for NBC Sports.  Phil did almost every sport imaginable for ESPN, including: NCAA football, basketball, baseball, track and field, and a host of other sports.  He also hosted golf and boxing for ESPN, and had a most “memorable” moment as part of his interview of Muhammad Ali on live television.  In 2008 he joined CBMC in their U.S. headquarters in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Both Dave and Phil are men of faith and regularly share with large audiences and individuals what Jesus Christ has meant to them and done in their lives.
