We get this thing started with the time he "almost scored a touchdown" against my beloved Lions on a Thanksgiving day, the time he faced Barry Sanders, and then we dive straight into what made Karl the player he was.Below is a bio from his website:Former Denver Broncos Captain and All-Pro Linebacker Karl Mecklenburg rose from being a college walk-on and a 12th round draft pick to a pro career that included six Pro Bowl and three Super Bowl appearances.

Karl was a semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame for eight consecutive years.Karl Mecklenburg, CSP, has earned the Certified Speaking Professional designation from the National Speaker’s Association. Less than 10% of the speakers who belong to the International Federation for Professional Speakers hold this professional designation. A much smaller percentage of celebrity speakers are CSPs, and Karl is presently the only football legend to have achieved Certified Speaking Professional designation. He enjoys speaking to a variety of groups, and his story is both humorous and inspirational. The lessons life in the NFL taught him about teamwork, courage, dedication, desire, honesty and forgiveness, and goal setting are his “Six Keys to Success”.As a highly regarded speaker, Karl tailors his presentations to the needs of the group while teaching and inspiring his audience.
