Bio

Considered one of the top five quarterbacks of all time, Warren Moon is the only football player ever to be enshrined by both the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame and Canadian Football Hall of Fame. During his career, Moon set several CFL and NFL records including most passing yardage, most passing touchdowns and the most pass completions in professional football.

He was selected to nine Pro Bowl games and three All-Pro teams and has been awarded the NFL MVP, NFL Man of the Year and Pro Bowl MVP titles. He is currently a broadcaster for the Seattle Seahawks and is also a business partner with his longtime friend and agent, Leigh Steinberg at Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment.

Speech Topics

Inducted in 2006, Warren Moon is the only African-American quarterback in the NFL Hall of Fame. His path to success was neither easy nor assured. As a seven-year-old growing up in Los Angeles, he lost his father to alcoholism and helped his single mom raise six sisters. Playing football as a kid, coaches questioned whether, because he was black, he had the smarts to play quarterback. Repeatedly asked to switch to another position, Moon refused, knowing that he had both the ability and the intelligence.


In college, he played at the University of Washington, beating the Michigan Wolverines in the Rose Bowl. Undrafted by the NFL, he went to Canada and played for the Edmonton Eskimos, leading his team to five consecutive championships. In 1984, he signed with the Houston Oilers and played for the Oilers, Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings, and Kansas City Chiefs over his 17-year career.


In this compelling presentation, Warren shares with audiences how he overcame all obstacles to become one of the Top 5 quarterbacks of all time.
