Motivational Speaker Matt Mayberry to Speak at Cold Spring Harbor High School
Former NFL Player to speak to students on overcoming adversity, motivation and leadership
CHICAGO, IL – September 10, 2013 – Author and motivational speaker Matt Mayberry will be speaking at Cold Spring Harbor High School, in New York State, Wednesday September 11, 2013 from 7pm. The former Chicago Bears linebacker will talk to student athletes and parents at their “Code of Conduct” meeting, prior to the school’s sports year, on motivation, leadership, nutrition, and abstaining from Alcohol and Drugs among other topics.
Mayberry was signed by the National Football League Chicago Bears in 2010, and after reaching the pinnacle of his sport, suffered a life changing ankle injury. It was this event that inspired Mayberry to embrace his true passion of helping others, through personal coaching, development and motivational messages. On his visit to Cold Spring Harbor, Mayberry said, “High school was a pivotal time in my life which helped shaped me into the person I am today. These kids are our future, and I am excited to share my journey with them.”
Earlier this year, Mayberry published the book “A Guide to College Athletic Scholarships: A Personal Journey” (ISBN: 978-0-9889705-3-3). The book, a step-by-step guide thru the athletic scholarship process, tells the story of how Mayberry went from an average student athlete, with little prospects; to becoming a dynamic athlete with well over a dozen scholarship offers by his senior year.
Mayberry was team captain at Hinsdale South High School, where he still holds six school records. At Indiana University he was team captain from 2009-2010, earning All Big-Ten honors in his senior season, and lead the Hoosiers in tackles in his junior and senior years. Mayberry, was awarded team recipient for the prestigious Howard Brown Award, which exemplifies leadership, courage and work ethic.
