One of football's greats will be the keynote speaker for the 4th annual Wadsworth Youth Football scholarship dinner.

Former Buckeye, Massillon Tiger, and NFL linebacker Chris Spielman joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about the event,  the message he likes to get across to young people, and a little bit about his new gig with FOX Sports as an NFL analyst.

Chris says its never too early for kids to learn great life lessons and implement discipline in their lives.

"We as parents and as coaches have to order and demand that standard as best we can," Spielman said.  "We have to point out when they fall short of that standard and when they meet it."

Spielman will be speaking at the Wadsworth Youth Football dinner at the Galaxy Restaurant beginning at 6 p.m.

One of the newest members of the sports team at FOX Sports made an appearance  on a "Feel Good Friday" to talk about his new venture in broadcasting and discuss the NFL game today and how it differed from when he played.

Former Massillon Tiger, OSU Buckeye, and NFL linebacker and current FOX NFL and college football analyst Chris Spielman joined the Sam Bourquin Show to discuss moving on from ESPN and his time working in the booth with Sean McDonough.

"Anytime you get a chance to challenge yourself or do something new, it is exciting," Spielman said. "For me this year in 2016, I'm going to do all NFL games, and I've done some NFL preseason stuff in the past."

 

Chris and Sean teamed up for ESPN's college football broadcast and he says one of the cool things about working with Sean was their on-air chemistry and ability to let the broadcast "breathe." He says that their chemistry helped propel them to new heights, with Chris at FOX and Sean as the voice of Monday Night Football.

"I was a small part of him achieving a life-long goal and that felt good."

Chris also talked about the NFL game, and as a former linebacker with the Lions, Bills, and Browns, and he said that as a defensive player, they have to be able to adjust to the rules being geared towards the offensive side of the ball.
