Kevin Reilly Surrounded by Football Players

As a Delaware Native and former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker, Kevin is regarded by many to be a hometown hero. Kevin is more than that though, he is also an inspirational speaker with a story of perseverance. 

Unfortunately, in 1976 Kevin’s NFL career would become short-lived. Doctor’s discovered a desmoid tumor, and Kevin was told that he would lose his left arm, shoulder, and five ribs.

Kevin, however, defied the odds and made a tremendous recovery. With the help of his friend, Rocky Blier, Kevin re-learned many things that we take for granted on a daily basis. 

Kevin is an exceptional speaker, and he’ll most definitely get your audience feeling energized.

Matthew Newman is another speaker currently operating out of the Delaware area. Newman is a cancer survivor, and his story is also fraught with resilience and passion.

Matthew Newman was a family man, and a financial professional for twenty years. Tragically, at the age of 39 he was diagnosed with grade-three astrocytoma; brain cancer.

Part of Matthew’s message is that perspective is everything, and this is how he found the strength to fight cancer.

John Roesch is certainly a man who understands that the little things in life are the most impactful. As a legendary foley artist, John works with sound design and tries to recreate sound effects for film, television, and video games.

His resume is impressive, and his credits include ET, the Empire Strikes Back, and Toy Story just to name a few. John is now the lead foley artist at Skywalker Ranch and continues to do work for big budget films and TV shows.

At the beginning of his career, Roesch really wanted to become an actor or director. However, John ended up getting into Foley to help his friend produce a film.

John’s message is a simple one: learn to appreciate the small details in your life, and examine situations beyond their surface level.

Life is Magic, and this former NFL player for the Eagles has brought his magic to the whole country…

Shockingly, Jon’s athletic career came to an abrupt end in 2017 when it was discovered that he had an aortic aneurysm. After this, he decided to pursue his second passion: becoming a performing magician. 

Jon has been doing magic since he was thirteen, and has always used it as a form of escapism. Magic gave him the motivation to recover and keep pushing on, magic saved him.

This is precisely the message Jon tries to convey to his audiences, that life is magical.

It’s never too late to pursue your dreams…

Vince Papale, home town hero and legend, is undoubtedly familiar with this statement. At thirty years old, Papale became the oldest rookie in the history of the NFL to play without having college football experience.

“Paralyzed to Powerful”…These are the words that 23-year old Robert Paylor lives by. 

In 2017, Robert’s life was instantly changed when he broke his neck in a collegiate rugby championship. Devastatingly, Robert was told that he would never walk or move his hands again. 

Well, in this case the medical experts were wrong. As his recovery progressed, Robert actually gained the strength to walk again.

Just a few years later, Robert graduated from Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley. In what would become a momentous achievement in his life, Robert Paylor walked across that stage to a cheering crowd and accepted his diploma.
