Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Frank Reich to Speak at YMCA Good Friday Breakfast
Please join us for this year’s breakfast to hear Colts head coach Frank Reich share an inspiring message of faith, family (and a probably bit about football).
A man of faith
After a 14-year career in the NFL, Reich retired in 1998 and made the decision to spend time with his family and join the Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, N.C. He graduated from seminary, led RTS for three years and then pastored a local church prior to his 12 years as a coach. [See full profile at colts.com]
An “epic” first season
In Reich’s first season as head coach for the Colts this year, the team became the third in NFL history to overcome a 1-5 start to make it into the playoffs. In a public letter to fans about how the team overcame such odds, Reich spoke of “trust and belief” and how the team’s “1-0” mantra might help others climb their own “mountains.”
Here’s the full line-up of special guests:
- Frank Reich
- Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett
- Fanchon Stinger, anchor and reporter, FOX59
- Derrick Stewart, President & CEO, YMCA of Greater Indianapolis
