Chicago Bears hall of fame linebacker, Mike Singletary, will serve as the sports marshal for this year’s Apple Blossom festival.
Organizers say Singletary has a long football history. He was awarded NFL defensive player of the year in 1985 and 1988. He also had 13 tackles leading to the Bears’ 46 to 10 defeat of the Patriots in Super Bowl XX. After retiring from football in 1993, Singletary worked as a consultant and speaker for top Fortune 500 companies.
Singletary will be this year’s featured speaker at the Partlow Insurance Sports Breakfast on Saturday morning, May 4. Tickets sold for the 2019 breakfast have already exceeded last year’s total attendance.
There are still other sports guests to be announced.
