Skyline High School in Salt Lake City, Utah, is a nice place to be a student.– Newsweek named it as one of the top four percent of U.S. High Schools. But it's an even better place to be a football player. In the '90s Skyline won five straight State Championships. BFS is proud to have a Graduate of Skyline High School on its Team.
John Rowbotham is the Vice President of BFS and attended Skyline High School in Salt Lake City. His success at Skyline, where he was a Team Captain, enabled him to move on to play Safety at the University of Utah for two years before transferring to Pacific Lutheran University, where he won the award for Team Most Inspirational Player.
It would be an understatement to say Rowbotham was excited this May when he was given the opportunity to give a Be an 11 Clinic at Skyline.
"Just knowing that the kids on the team knew of me and that I had played there had a positive impact going into the seminar," says Rowbotham. "It was special also because Roger DuPaix, the winningest coach in Utah history, attended the Seminar."
Unlike many motivational seminars, Rowbotham says his seminars are very dynamic.
"There is very little sitting down and lecturing at a Be an 11 – we focus on a lot of hands-on activities for team building."
