An NFL Hall of Famer is coming to speak in Salina. Terry Bradshaw will speak at the chamber of commerce annual banquet.
Bradshaw is considered to be one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.
He was an All American at Louisiana Tech University, and was the first player selected in the 1970 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the Steelers, he was the first quarterback ever to win four Super Bowl Championships. He twice was named Super Bowl MVP.
After retiring in 1984, Bradshaw became a Color Analyst for CBS Sports on their NFL broadcasts, and later one of the in-studio co-hosts. After a decade with CBS, Bradshaw joined Fox Sports in 1994. He is currently one of the co-hosts and analysts on Fox NFL Sunday.
Along with his football work, Bradshaw is also an author, singer, actor, and motivational speaker.

“We are thrilled to have Terry Bradshaw as our 2013 Annual Meeting speaker,” stated Dan Mendicina, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Chamber. “Terry is not only a great athlete, but a leader and role model for young children and adults as well. He has a great message about leadership, perseverance, and achieving success in whatever you do.
