My local rotary had a banquet tonight. Guest speaker was Mike Minter. He gave an inspirational speech about defining and pursuing your dream. He talked about his life and how his dream of playing football took him from Oklahoma as a small child all the way to Charlotte playing for the Panthers.

He did answer some questions about football. Given he does some post game radio and is tied into the Panthers he pretty much towed the party line that the youth movement was a good thing and necessary although he will miss his friends and buddies.
He did say that Vick will never be here, said Richardson will never bring him here due to character issues. He also said Moore was the guy and that no big name will be brought in to compete or be the starter. He said McNabb wasn't coming either. Then he answered questions about his foundation and business ventures.

So if he still knows the pulse of the Panthers, there you go.

Cool story. You didn't take any pics? That would be cool to see, since Minter is always a smart & classy guy. I always like watching him with Greg Bailey about the Panthers whenever the game is over & discussing about it. :)

He did talk about coaching but not for the Panthers. He has been lobbying hard to be the first coach of the UNCC football team when it starts. He said he wants it bad. He also talked about the private school he coached this year in Concord to a perfect record and state championship.

Minter spoke at my son's flag football awards last fall. Great speaker, stand up guy. he's the kind of guy all professional athletes should aspire to be.

I thought it was nice how Minter played his entire career with the Panthers and then left on his own terms. Unlike Hoover getting tossed out and Muhammad simply being ignored.
