Nice Jewish Boy Wins Super Bowl Ring...

Alan Shlomo Veingrad, former NFL Offensive Lineman, shares his story of being the only Jewish player on the Super Bowl XXVII World Champion Dallas Cowboy Team in 1992. With remarkable candor and alacrity, Alan keeps his audiences spellbound with his accounts of the intense training, ruthless competitive atmosphere, and performance requirements of professional football life. He relays his personal breakthroughs and accomplishments during his five years with the Green Bay Packers and two years with the Dallas Cowboys playing for legendary coach Jimmy Johnson alongside hall of fame quarterback Troy Aikman and record-breaking running back Emmitt Smith.

Alan has used his championship experience to score big in his business career since his retirement from the NFL. He has held executive level business development positions in the commercial real estate/mortgage, and financial services industries. He has consistently exceeded the revenue expectations for his divisional responsibilities by three-digit percentages and exceeded the performance goals of his sales teams.

Relating his experiences as a professional athlete, a sales and marketing executive, and an observant Jew, Alan’s presentations bring audiences laughter, inspiration and valuable insights into both life and business. A captivating speaker and storyteller, Alan describes how the lifestyle he fell into after his retirement from professional football left a void that unwittingly lead him to the Torah and Mitzvos.

Alan Veingrad is in a class by himself offering personal inspiration, corporate motivation and individual stimulation to be the best you can be in every aspect of your life. He is a beacon of light for people craving meaningfulness in a dog-eat-dog world of materialistic values and personal isolation who are spiritually adrift and seeking to be grounded so that they can find tranquility and contentment.
