NFL Hall of Famer speaks at Lane College’s Dinner with the Pros


JACKSON, Tenn. — The Lane College athletic program hosted their Dinner with the Pros fundraiser Saturday night at Oman Arena.

Lane College looks to renovate their 96-year-old stadium. The renovation will take millions of dollars, and Dinner with the Pros is part of the school’s effort to raise that money.

NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Andre Reed was the keynote speaker.

“Character and respect — the two words that my dad instilled in me to this day that I tell kids, and even my own two kids,” Reed said. “‘Cause if you don’t have those two things, you’re missing a lot.”

Reed is also a former Buffalo Bills teammate of Lane’s Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Derrick Burroughs.

The event also featured a silent auction.
