CAMP HILL, Pa. – The Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association is excited to announce Ross Tucker as the keynote speaker for the 2019 Annual Membership Conference and Expo, taking place at Toftrees Resort in State College May 16-18.
Tucker, a native of Wyomissing, Pa., played seven seasons in the National Football League as an offensive lineman after playing four years at Princeton University. He was a second-team all conference selection in 2000, a two-time Academic All-American and was named to the 2003 All-Joe Team by USA Today.
In his time in the NFL from 2001-2007, Tucker played for the Redskins, Cowboys, Bills and Patriots as well as a stint with the Browns on their practice squad. He played in 42 games, starting 28 of them, before retiring in March of 2008 due to a neck injury that bruised his spinal cord.
Tucker turned to a career in the media after retiring from football and is currently a columnist for The Athletic, a host of both The Morning Kickoff and The Opening Drive on Sirius XM NFL Radio and a game analyst for CBS, NBC, ESPN and Westwood One. Ross is the host and owner of the highly successful RT Media Podcast Network which includes his flagship Ross Tucker Football Podcast.
In 2007, while still a member of the Washington Redskins, Tucker co-founded and is still the CEO of GoBigRecruiting.com. Go Big allows student-athletes to submit their profile information and videos to colleges online and receive notification when it has been reviewed. He’s also involved in other Pennsylvania-based start-ups like MyFrontPageStory.com and BallCannon.com.
Tucker, along with his wife and two daughters, currently live in Harrisburg.
The 2019 AMC will conclude on Saturday May 18 with Tucker’s presentation. He will be available for a meet and greet that morning at 10 before taking the podium at 10:30.
