NFL Great Joe Theismann Speaks About Community Involvement at Benefit Dinner

NFL great Joe Theismann is beloved all over the country for his iconic football career and his abilities as a motivational speaker. Last week, he shared a message of giving back as the keynote speaker at the Jackson County community benefit dinner in West Virginia. 

Theismann started his presentation by telling entertaining stories about his career. He also recapped the adversity he faced when he broke his leg and prematurely ended his NFL career.  

That major change caused Theismann to rethink the way he was conducting almost every aspect of his life. It was a blessing in disguise, setting him up for a successful second act as a broadcaster, speaker and businessman. 

"I was one of those people who was a taker all my life," said Theismann. "After I got hurt... I realized that we are not on this earth to be served, we're on this earth to serve people, and that's really what the foundation is doing."

Theismann forged a football legacy through 12 seasons with the Washington Redskins. He was a two-time Pro Bowler and guided the Redskins to two Super Bowl berths, coming out victorious in Super Bowl XVII. 

In 1983, Theismann was named NFL MVP, NFL Offensive Player of the Year and a first-team All-Pro. He still holds Washington career records for quarterback wins, yards, completions and attempts. 

Theismann is a member of the Washington Redskins Ring of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame. After retiring from football in 1985, Theismann launched into a career as a color analyst at ESPN.
