Dartmouth Athletics and the Office of the Dean of the College will welcome Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow to campus on Tuesday, May 21 to lead a conversation centered on wellness. Winslow, known as one of the greatest offensive threats of his era, earned many honors throughout his nine year professional football career. He was an All-Pro three times, voted to the All-AFC team four times, and appeared in five Pro Bowls. He led the NFL in receptions in 1980, 1981, 1988 and 1989.
Winslow was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame (1995) and the College Football Hall of Fame (2002). He earned consensus All-American honors during his senior year while playing for the University of Missouri Tigers. While playing nine seasons for the NFL's San Diego Chargers he was often referred to as the player who redefined the tight end position. Most recently, he was director of athletics and student wellness at Central State University in Ohio. In addition to his duties as athletic director, Winslow created health intervention programs designed to foster academic success and a more active and healthy lifestyle for all students. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Educational Studies, from the University of Missouri, Columbia, and a Juris Doctorate, from the University of San Diego School of Law.
Winslow frequently speaks with college students about how lifestyle choices they make in college impact their personal health and their ability to succeed after college.
He will be appearing at Dartmouth Hall, room 105, May 21, from 4:30pm-5:30pm.
