Biography:

Motivational Speaker Warren Moon is a Hall of Fame NFL quarterback whose career took a different path than most superstars. He paved the way for other duel-threat quarterbacks with great arm strength and mobility in the pocket. Warren was the star of the 1978 Rose Bowl in which he led his Washington Huskies to a huge victory over the favored Michigan Wolverines. Warren rushed for 2 touchdowns and threw for 1 more to earn MVP honors. His athletic ability was apparent, but Warren went undrafted in the ensuing NFL Draft.

Warren was determined to prove his worth on the gridiron. He was not discouraged and signed a deal to become a member of the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League. His star power at quarterback helped the Eskimos capture 5 straight Grey Cup titles from 1978-1982. He became the first quarterback in CFL history to throw for 5,000 yards in a season during 1982. The following season he surpassed his own record with 5,648 passing yards and earned the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player Award.

Now the tables had turned. NFL teams were knocking down Warren’s door hoping to sign him to a big deal. After reviewing his options, Warren chose to begin his NFL career with the Houston Oilers. He threw for a franchise record 3,338 yards in his first season with the team. Motivational Speaker Warren Moon was a 6-time Pro Bowl selection during his 10 seasons with the Oilers. In 1994, Warren was traded to the Minnesota Vikings. Warren would make the Pro Bowl once with Minnesota and once with the Seattle Seahawks before ending his career as a Kansas City Chief in 2000.

Today, Warren is one of the lead play-by-play TV and radio commentators for the Seattle Seahawks. With over 20 combined years of professional football experience, Warren has seen it all and possesses a superior understanding of what it takes to make it to the top. In 2011, Motivational Speaker Warren Moon was a key mentor for Carolina Panthers superstar quarterback Cam Newton when he first entered the NFL.
