The Higher Ground Mens Conference is the premier gathering of men of faith (13 years and older) in the Pacific Northwest for encouragement, straight talk and practical tools for living with integrity and resiliency in todays fragmented and hyper-sexual culture. Local football great and 710 ESPN radio host Brock Huard will be this year's featured keynote speaker, sharing inspirational stories of the deep, authentic friendships that have impacted his life and spiritual journey. Attendees will also have the chance to dig deeper into key men's issues through a variety of breakout sessions on topics such as spiritual authenticity, integrity in the workplace, father-son relationships, transformative brotherhood, marriage enrichment, sexual integrity, special sessions for teens and young adults, and being champions of social justice in their local communities.
Born and raised in what some callThe First Family of Football in Puyallup, Washington, Brock Huard is the middle quarterback of Mike and Peg Huard.After playing for his father, the head football coach, at Puyallup High School and being selected as the 1995 Gatorade Circle of Champions National Player of the Year, Brock followed his older brother Damons footsteps,playing quarterback for the University of Washington Huskies. Brock was drafted in 1999 and played six years in the NFL, four of which with the Seattle Seahawks.
These days, most know Huard as co-host of KIRO radios 710 ESPN morning sports talk show Brock and Salk and his 10 years as an ESPN color commentator for college football.
Becoming a Christ-follower in junior high and receiving profound mentoring from his youth pastor, Brock continued a lifelong journey of seeking out and developing authentic and transforming friendships with Christian brothers and mentors, both on and off the field.
In April of 2017, Brock debuted his new podcastAbove and Beyond The Intersection of Faith and Sports, where he features interviews with the men that have impacted and continue to inspire his Christian faith.
I am thrilled to get to share my life and faith in a way I never have before, through the medium of podcasts, and even more so through relationships that have shaped my journey, Huard said. Through my years as an athlete, in real estate, and now in the media world, I have always thirsted for deep rooted relationships. These podcasts will dig into those encounters with athletes like youve never heard before.
