West Virginia University Football Player and Graduate, Former Pittsburgh Steelers Player,
Motivational Speaker, and Best Selling Author
Former Pittsburgh Steeler Wes Lyons provides students with a positive, yet real, perspective on life and its challenges. Wes has built a brand as an inspirational leader and speaker by discussing how he defied the odds to become part of less than 1% of high school students to play football for a Division 1-A school, and then continue on to be signed by an NFL team.
During his presentations, Wes emphasizes the importance of his “Three Points”:
- Positivity – The 3rd and Long Attitude
- Planning – Developing a long-term playbook
- Persistence – The 60-minute challenge
Wes’ success in life is based off actually living these key points. He has continuously set ambitious goals and achieved his dreams through hard work, preparation, and dedication. Wes has also penned a best-selling book based off these principles called The Pursuit with Patience.
Wes’ experiences show that there are no impossible goals - as long as you have the right attitude and tools to achieve them. When Wes speaks to students, he boosts the morale of everyone in the room.
