We met Spencer Tillman through our friends at Lift Up America. If you’re much of a college football fan, you know who Spencer is. As lead studio analyst for CBS sports, he’s visible every autumn Saturday afternoon, wherever there’s a “big game,” moving into his current role after a distinguished career in college and pro football. But when he’s not focused on football, Spencer does an amazing amount of great work to make the world a better place, traveling the country to speak and inspire. He’s articulate and passionate about changing lives for the better.
At the request of Lift Up America, Spencer agreed to tell his story as part of our KNOW Hunger video series, in which successful people talk about their own experiences to help educate and inform us about hunger.
We look forward to seeing Spencer this Friday in his hometown of Tulsa as we do a food donation with Lift Up America and the University of Tulsa. As you can see from the video, Spencer’s come a long way since graduating from high school there. If you get a chance to talk with him, you get the feeling that with his boundless energy, intelligence and passsion, we’ll continue to see great things from him.
