Bears great Dan Hampton, who played for the 1985 Super Bowl XX Champion Chicago
Bears, appeared as the Keynote Speaker at FCAC's September 19th General
Membership Meeting held at Maggiano's Little Italy in Chicago. Dan's presentation
combined motivation, insight, and just the right amount of locker room anecdotes
to keep our audience entertained and informed, and he remained long after the
dinner to sign autographs and visit. A Pro Football Hall of Famer, Dan was a
first-round draft pick for the Bears in 1979 out of the University of Arkansas.
An outstanding, versatile defensive lineman, he played 12 seasons with the Bears,
six times earning first or second team All-Pro honors. Nicknamed "Danimal" for
a ferocious style of play, Hampton endured 10 knee surgeries and numerous other
injuries to become recognized as one of the game's most dedicated players.
Now enjoying a second career in radio on WGN, he drew a capacity crowd to the
September FCAC General Membership Meeting.
