ParentEd.: Raising Athletes: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

ParentEd.: Raising Athletes: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

 

Join us Thursday, February 27 for an exclusive ParentEd. session with special guest CBS/Fox Sports Analyst, Danny Kanell. His talk "Raising Athletes: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly" will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the Knox Athletic Performance Center. Mr. Kanell will draw from his vast experience and knowledge of the professional sports world to share tips for striking a balance in developing young athletes in today’s ultra-competitive culture. Parents with athletes competing at any level won’t want to miss this special event. Please invite your friends and neighbors to attend.

Danny Kanell is a sportscaster for CBS Sports, Fox Sports 1, and SiriusXM. Mr. Kanell is a former NFL quarterback and was previously a college football analyst for ESPN networks and ESPN Radio personality.

Mr. Kanell’s athletic expertise spans both the collegiate and professional level in multiple sports. Though he was drafted in high school by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 19th round, he decided to further his education at Florida State University. While in college at Florida State University, Mr. Kanell led the Seminoles to Sugar Bowl and Orange Bowl victories as quarterback. He was selected as the 1995 ACC Player of the Year and the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Scholar Athlete. Mr. Kanell was inducted into the Florida State Hall of Fame in 2012. While at FSU, he also played baseball for the Seminoles and was again drafted for baseball, this time by the New York Yankees in the 25th round. Ultimately, he chose to sign with the NFL’s New York Giants when he was drafted in 1996. Mr. Kanell made his NFL debut later that season, leading the Giants to the NFC Eastern Division title. He also played for the Atlanta Falcons and the Denver Broncos until 2004.

After his pro football career, Mr. Kanell became the host of ESPNU's UNITE and served as color analyst for Friday Night college football games and college baseball and called the ABC Saturday afternoon college games. He later became the co-host of the Russillo and Kanell show on ESPN. Mr. Kanell then joined Fox Sports 1 as a college football analyst. He is also the host of Dog Day Sports with Steve Torre on Mad Dog Sports Radio, SiriusXM channel 82. He resides in Florida with his wife and three daughters. 

 

Anyone involved in competitive sports at any level is encouraged to attend this event (student-athletes, parents, coaches, families in the community). More information about the event is available here.
