Best known as former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, he envelops audiences in a world of uncompromising challenge and unmatched glory. A charismatic, inspiring speaker, he shares the tools he's used to accomplish victories on and off the playing field. Stressing the value of teamwork, he uses humor and a wealth of anecdotes to prove that no goal is unreachable.
