After meeting Joe Rhea we knew that his message and ability to connect with young people was too valuable to keep just to our football players. Rather, we chose to have him present his amazing story of overcoming physical and psychological strategies to our entire student body.
His ability to captivate an auditorium full of 14-18 years olds, while not surprising to me, was awesome to witness. In today’s short attention span world his ability to hold his audience captive to every story and life lesson that came from his message is wonderful.

As Joe began telling his story and the stories of others he has come into contact with, our student-athletes were completely captivated. I have never seen such a quiet yet intrigued group of 300 plus student-athletes. As the chair for our drug and alcohol education in the athletic department, I arrange for speakers on a regular basis. I can honestly say that Joe has been one of the most powerful speakers that I have seen.
