Sam Ball

"Don't Give Them A Speech, Give Them A Show"


Sam Ball's speaking philosophy is simple, "Don't give 'em a speech -- give them a show!" You will want to suit up and get in the game after you quit laughing at some of his famous jokes and stories about his amazing career.

Your audience will also realize that being an all-American and world champion are not something ordered out of a catalogue, but are a product of hard work, determination, and fighting through pain. They can take these principles back home and put them to work in their lives, their business, or their sports team and obtain the next level of success and happiness.

Sam Ball is a country boy who became a NCAA consensus all-American from the University of Kentucky, an NFL 1st round draft choice, NFL champion, and super bowl world champion with the Baltimore Colts.

After retiring from his NFL career, SAM returned home to raise his family, became active in his church, community, and coaching youth.

Sam retired from an award winning multimillion dollar ag-business sales career. He continues to manage his own successful grain and cattle farm, in addition to pursuing his professional speaking career.

Fight your way to the next level of success and happiness!

Reviews:

"You are among the most dynamic and charismatic speakers I have ever had the pleasure of hearing and it is obvious that your love of life carries over into everything you do. Your address will be one I will remember 10 years from now. You injected a heavy dose of positive attitude into all of us, and we are all the better for it. Your speech reminded me of the story of Bill Porter, whose life story was recently made into the movie 'Door to Door'. Infectious optimism were products his customers needed."
