Keynote speaker Jarrett Payton, former St. Viator High School athlete and NFL player, shared with the young athletes lessons he gleaned from watching his father, Bears legend Walter Payton. He highlighted the training, determination and persistence required for success and advised the student athletes to give back to their communities.

Payton said he always tries to “preach greatness” when he talks to young people.

“We all have greatness inside of us,” Payton said. “We just have to get it out.”
