More about Kyle Rote, Guest Speaker

He’s spoken in Washington, D.C. for three U.S. Presidents and in London for Prince Philip. At the pinnacle of his athletic career, Kyle took a year off to assist Mother Teresa and others in the battle against hunger. He was selected “One of the Ten Outstanding Young People in the World” in 1985.
    Athletically, ESPN The Magazine named him the greatest athlete of all time in its “Year 2000 - Special Edition” due, in part, to his dominance in the wildly popular ABC-TV “Wide World of Sports” SuperStars Competitions that aired in the 1970’s. In those 10 event challenges, Kyle defeated three Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalists, and dozens of future Hall of Famers like OJ Simpson, Lynn Swann, Roger Staubach, Reggie Jackson, Lou Brock, Sugar Ray Leonard, Joe Frazier, Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe, “Dr.” J Julius Erving, and John Havlicek . Kyle won the event three of the four years he participated.
    Kyle is also a Soccer Hall of Famer and was the first American born player to win the North American Soccer League’s Scoring Title. He enjoyed the honor of playing for the U.S.A.’s National team for four years against some of the world’s best teams and players.
    Today, he is the retired CEO of a 26-year- old sports agency he started that has represented hundreds of this generation’s greatest athletes including Reggie White, Darrell Green, Scottie Pippen, and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. In addition, the agency has also represented dozens of coaching icons and personalities like Alabama’s Nick Saban, South Carolina’s Steve Spurrier, and the NFL’s Bill Parcells among many others.
    Kyle has been very active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) as a popular speaker and multi-term member of the Board of Trustees. He is the author of four books including publisher Thomas Nelson’s recent release of Living Life In the Zone (with co-author Dr. Joe Pettigrew), a 40-day devotional using short stories of modern sports and business personalities to teach and reaffirm eternal Biblical truths.
     Kyle and his wife, Mary Lynne, have been married for 38 years. They have four children, Will, John, Josie and Ben.
