He retired from the NFL in 1992 after eight seasons with the Patriots and two with the Los Angeles Raiders, but look for his distinguished football accomplishments to someday be recorded in Canton, Ohio.

Today, Holloway is an international motivational speaker and renowned corporate trainer, mobilizing companies and organizations in search of peak productivity, helping them achieve new levels of excellence. He understands how to transform thinking within organizations and challenge the competitive spirit of diverse work teams.

Brian's stories and case studies are scenes from his own life.

These powerful, high-impact presentations have immediate take-home value for everyone -- athlete and non-athlete alike.

Holloway's accomplishments have landed him appearances on Good Morning America, the Today Show, ESPN, USA Network, and NBC Sports, and feature coverage in USA Today, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the L.A.

Born into an Air Force family in Omaha, Nebraska on July 25, 1959, Brian grew up to face and overcome many challenges -- his youth spent adjusting to life in 12 different states, even being labeled a "slow learner.

Persistence and an unstoppable spirit propelled Brian through his early struggles and on to academic and athletic awards through his high school and college years. He was heavily recruited by Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, and Princeton, and showered with over 350 scholarship offers. He chose Stanford University and earned varsity letters in both football and track there under Coach Bill Walsh.

Brian's commitment to service grew throughout his playing days, when he helped develop the first College Degree Completion Program for Professional Athletes. Beyond the game, he helped establish the Challenger Center for Space Science Education -- a living education memorial to the ill-fated crew of the Space Shuttle Challenger. His community activism embraces the homeless and inner city youth, and he vigorously supports Special Olympics.
