One of the most respected NFL football players in recent years, Dallas Cowboy and future NFL Hall of Famer Jason Witten is coming to Midland on Tuesday, May 8 for Winning with Character, hosted by Lubbock Christian University.
Witten and former Dallas Cowboy Ryan Young will share their personal stories of what it takes to win with character on the field and in life. The special evening will be held at the Mid-Cities Community Church.
David Fraze, special assistant to the LCU president and manager of the character coaching initiative for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes organization, said, “When you think of high impact, high character athletes, the name that rises to the top is Jason Witten. We are excited to hear his insight into what it means and what it takes to Win with Character.”
Witten and Young will share personal and behind-the-scenes stories of their time as team mates and as members of the Dallas Cowboys football team. Audience members will be able to get a glimpse into the challenges that face professional athletes and their specific experiences in the NFL.
Fraze said, “Everybody wants to win, but the win, in today’s society is creating a self-destructive wave among athletes and fans alike. The NFL is working to create conversations and strategies among coaches and administrators that will assist athletes in using their platform for character development and creating positive community impacts. Their testimonies and insight will make this evening extra special.”
Tickets are available for dinner and the presentation or the presentation only, and a special meet and greet VIP reception is available on various table sponsorship levels. For more information, please visit, LCU.edu/Witten.
