Former New Orleans Saints player and Super Bowl Champion Chris Reis, will be the featured speaker for this year’s FCA / AutoZone Liberty Bowl Breakfast.   

Reis is a former Super Bowl champion, NFL player, author, and lifelong athlete. He is best known as the player with the most famous onside-kick recovery in Super Bowl history. His game-changing play at the start of the second half of Super Bowl XLIV helped the New Orleans Saints defeat the Indianapolis Colts 31-17.  NFL.com named Chris’ play one of the “top 10 greatest Super Bowl plays of the decade”. Chris is a graduate of the Georgia Tech, where he was the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes throughout his entire college experience. It was within those walls of fellowship that Chris’ father, Mike, felt his own calling to surrender his life to Christ. In 2012, Chris and his father published a compelling book titled Recovery of a Lifetime: The Inspirational Journey of a Super Bowl Hero Son and His Father's Battle Against Multiple Addictions. This father-and-son book unpacks the dynamics of family relationships and tells a redeeming story of faith, hope, restoration, and recovery. Today, Chris works at Our Savior’s Church in Lafayette, Louisiana where he is the Young Adult and Student Pastor.

In announcing this year’s guest speaker, Memphis FCA Executive Director Kevin “RevKev” Nathaniel commented, “We are extremely excited that Chris Reis will be the featured speaker for this year’s breakfast.  Chris has a powerful story of redemption that will inspire everyone in attendance to give their all, all of the time, in pursuit of their desired outcome.”

Harold Graeter, Associate Executive Director of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, stated, “The AutoZone Liberty Bowl is proud of our longstanding association with the Greater Memphis Fellowship of Christian Athletes and we, too, are excited that Chris will be speaking at this year’s FCA/AutoZone Liberty Bowl Breakfast. He reflects the character and high principles on which the AutoZone Liberty Bowl was founded.”
