Former NFL Player Steve Fitzhugh is coming to Southlake April 12-13 to present his motivational topic “Championship Decision Making.” Each year Steve Fitzhugh speaks to thousands of youth throughout the country and abroad. His talks help young people make positive choices in life. Steve’s message challenges students on critical issues of today: from dropping out to academic leadership; from peer pressure to positive values; from alcohol abuse to freedom from the chemical culture. He encourages students who have made positive choices. His style is fresh and humorous as he shares his own personal experiences of playing in the NFL for the Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns. Identifying with the youth of today, he is able to see what students see; feel what they feel; and he understands their situations.
Sidelined with a shoulder injury after only two years with the Denver Broncos, Fitzhugh began his Master of Divinity graduate studies at Howard University in Washington D.C. followed by 16 months on Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation in North Dakota where he began drug & alcohol prevention education throughout the public and private school systems.
Today Steve Fitzhugh serves nationally and abroad as the executive director of PowerMoves, leading students into success and significance. He is also the national spokesperson for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ “One Way 2 Play – Drug Free” program. When at home in Washington, D.C. Steve can be found at “The House,” an after school teen drop-in center he co-founded as a safe place for the students of Southeast DC.
Fitzhugh is also an author, poet, and lyricist. His poetry and songs tap into struggles, joys, hearth-aches, love and life’s funny moments to which so many can relate. Make plans now to hear his amazing message.
