“I think he’s the No. 1 motivational speaker in athletics right now,” PRCC coach Michael Avalon said in a press release. “We’re going to use it as a fund-raiser, but also as a team-building opportunity, a way to get our season started on the right foot. His story is pretty inspiring.”
Tickets are $25 for groups of 10 or more, and $30 for individuals and groups of less than 10.
