Keynote Speaker: Boomer Esiason
After an All-America career at the University of Maryland, Boomer Esiason enjoyed a 14-year career in the NFL as a quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals. He became a four-time Pro Bowl quarterback and one of the most successful quarterbacks in NFL history, including being named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 1988.
When his son, Gunnar, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, Esiason launched the Boomer Esiason Foundation (esiason.org). The organization partners leaders in the medical and business communities with a committed core of volunteers to heighten awareness, education and quality of life for those affected by cystic fibrosis, while providing financial support to research aimed at finding a cure. Since its inception, the foundation has raised more than $115 million to support research toward a cure for CF, as well as programs directly benefiting the CF community.
Upon retiring from the NFL after the 1997 season, Esiason headed straight for the broadcast booth working as a football commentator for various networks through the years.
