Theismann has spent the last two decades working for ESPN on their NFL broadcast and the NFL Network. The former Washington Redskins quarterback joined ESPN in April 1988, reuniting with play-by-play voice, Mike Patrick.
He joined ESPN after spending two seasons as an NFL analyst for CBS Sports. A 12-year NFL veteran, Theismann played in 163 consecutive games from 1974-1985 and holds Redskins’ records for passing yardage (25,206), completions (2.044) and attempts (3,602). A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Theismann led
Washington to a 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII. Theismann was selected the NFL’s “Man of the Year” in 1982 for his community service and dedication to the health and welfare of children. He won the league’s 1983 “Most Valuable Player” Award for leading the Redskins to an NFL-recorded 541 points and a second consecutive Super Bowl appearance. His career ended abruptly in 1985 after sustaining a broken leg during a game against the New York Giants on national television.
Recently, Theismann was named the recipient of the 2013 Walter Camp Football Foundation “Distinguished American” Award.
CAJPA Opening Session
Wednesday, September 17
9:00 a.m. - 10:15 a.m.
- Keynote Speaker: Jim Craig
Jim Craig is widely known as the heart and soul of the 1980 USA Olympic Hockey team. The “Miracle on Ice” victory for the United States over the vaunted, seemingly unbeatable Soviet Union team is largely regarded as one of the most extraordinary sports victories of all time, and the team’s success is attributed to exceptional teamwork. Jim has parlayed his incredible work ethic and determination into an impressive sales career, spanning over 30 years. He has also translated many of the essential teamwork principles from the Olympics into successful business methods. He will use these methods to both educate and assist you in order to develop a team-oriented environment that will allow you, your team, and your business to successfully overcome the many challenges that you will face in the business world. Winning teamwork allowed Jim and the 1980 Olympic team to achieve “the impossible,” and the same principles can lead your business to unprecedented success!
